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

Beyond The Bell Program Worker (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 16, 2014
Pros: fun learning experiences
Cons: short breaks, not much materials
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.

Challenging, yet meaningful
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAMay 14, 2014
Pros: 6 hours schedule
Cons: no full medical benefits, no sick pay, no vacation paid, no stability
Working as a substitute teacher for LAUSD is a very challenging job. As a sub, you are not guaranteed a stable job nor work everyday, which is the hardest part of the job. You take place of the absent teacher and must work to your full potential. The most enjoyable part of the job is teaching students, work 6 hours, and you meet incredible teachers – more... and staff at every school you go. – less

Light Bus Driver (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CaMay 11, 2014
You have to love to drive and work with students. I worked unsupervised for four years and eight months. I learned how to make difficult disicions everyday when driving in the city. You have to be a precision driver when driving a school bus.

Wonderful colleagues, and a very enjoyable workplace...
Educator (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAMay 7, 2014
Pros: our workday is six hours.
Cons: co-payments for healthcare have slightly increased.
We have a great supervisor with very hard-working colleagues. My typical day is teaching multiple subjects to 5th grade gifted students. The most challenging part of the job is ensuring that the students are properly prepared for the state test, and district assessments. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the students are excited about learning, – more... and to see how they have grown cognitively, and intellectually throughout the school year. I have learned how to work collaboratively with my colleagues, and to model for my students how to work effectively with their peers. I have been a Master Teacher, managing groups of teachers, and providing training on how to teach the instructional curriculum in the classroom. – less

less than unifed
Custodian (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAMarch 28, 2014
Working at LAUSD can be a great experience and great disappointment. After five years I found myself frustrated by the constant lay-offs and cutbacks. I would not say it was a overall bad place to work but the janitor (building & grounds worker) is probably not a good position with this particular school district.

Computer, Business, & Marketing Teacher (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: lessons learned daily
Cons: difficult environment
There is no typical day at work. Each day is a challenge, as I deal with some of the most difficult students. Many of my students are faced with numerous issues most people have never experienced. I learn daily from my peers and my students. I would say the number one thing I continually learn is humility. I try to treat everyone kindly and with respect. – more... The hardest part of my job is having students who do not respect education. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I am making a difference, daily and impacting a students life. – less
