Cafeteria Supervisor (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 7, 2014
Being a Cafeteria Supervisor is not a easy job but it can be fun depending on how you handle it. on a average day we prepare food, serve students, staff and parents, maintain cleanliness, stock shelves, complete paperwork but most important we serve good quality healthy meals. I manage 7-10 employees on a daily average with the help of my manager. Communication – more... is the most important issue in this job because 1 detail that is left out can mess up the whole daily operation. – less

Campus Aide (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJuly 23, 2014
Pros: helping troubled kids make better decisions
Cons: not receiving the proper assistance when needed
the average day at work was mainly boring.
i learned that i wanted a more fullfilling job that makes a difference.
management was not fair at times, there were prefered persons to work overtime.
most of my co workers were lazy and selfish.
the hardest part of that job was dealing with uncooperative people and not having my fellow co workers assist me.

Health Care Assistant (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: the ability to practice my signing.
Cons: no raises in 7years
A typical day at work involves the distribution of medication, as well as execution of protocols among our students and staff. I have learned that at the root of all interactions comprehension is key and although i had been proficient in working with an array of children over the years with a multitude of disabilities, I was not quite prepared for an – more... entire language such as ASL. it was a tremendous challenge at the initiation of my time at this school, and now two years in, although i am still not as fluent as i would like to be i know I am more comfortable that i am doing a good job based on my willingness to learn. I have appreciated my Nurse Supervisors confidence in my skills and abilities because she has allowed me the freedom to organize our office in a way that makes is easier for our employees that are in the classrooms to navigate themselves better. – less

It was a good place to work, absolutely never a monotonous dull day.
Office Assistant (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 24, 2014
Pros: weekends off and paid holidays along with great benefits..
Cons: no closeby eatery.
It never was a typical day at work there. There was always something different I would confront. I took advantage of training classes the School District offered. The management was great and professional and I couldn't have asked for nicer co-workers where we all got along great. The hardest part of the job was at times meeting the State attendance – more... deadlines and the most enjoyable part was dealing with the students, especially the little ones, and the parents. – less

Working for LAUSD after school program taught me a lot with patients and being able to control a class room setting. I think by being able to make sure that 20 or more kids at one time was the hardest part of my job but it was interesting that some how I got it done.

Pros: 6 hours schedule
Cons: no full medical benefits, no sick pay, no vacation paid, no stability
