Adult Education Math Teacher (Former Employee) – Bell Gardens, CA – December 27, 2017
It was an interesting job experience working with adults and it is rewarding as well. The teacher gets to meet new students everyday and learn about their lives and obstacles the student faces. It is great when you see the students earning their certificates and/or their high school diploma and the joy that it brings the students when they have accomplished one of their goals. The hardest part is when the students are not able to hit their goal at the time that they wanted to or leaving because life comes first than their education. One learns a lot from their students and how we as educators are impacting their lives.
Substitute case worker (Former Employee) – Montebello, CA – February 18, 2018
Depending on what job you get hired for, working for a school district is not as secure as it was years ago. District employees were audited by the State. Classified employees had their wages decreased and superintendents received an increase in their yearly salary.
This USD used to be a fun, family oriented and a lot to offer and learn
Accountant (Current Employee) – Montebello, CA – October 31, 2017
Montebello USD used to be fun, family oriented and a lot to learn. A lot of knowledge and resources to learn. But now, all of them changed. Poor finance management knowledge, directions and micromanaging finance management. It's like the blind is leading the blind.
MUSD has a lot of resources
Poor Finance management attitude and accounting knowledge.
Senior Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Montebello, CA – September 26, 2017
A typical work day is busy. You never work the same day twice. You learn your job on top of others, you basically have to be a team player with a GREAT ATTITUDE! Workplace is never quiet, hardest part of the job is catching up on your deadline because working at a school you're constantly interrupted. Pros, drop everything for the kids and teacher, cons; parent's need records immediately and they take out their children frequently.
Special Ed. Case Worker (Current Employee) – Montebello, CA – August 30, 2017

Computer Programmer (Former Employee) – Montebello, CA – April 9, 2017
Small IT department, yet it managed to let programmers engage in some research and development. Overall MUSD management remained reasonable often feeling like a family trying to achieve common goals; sometimes slipping into a family squabbling.
Special Education Case Worker (Former Employee) – Montebello, CA – March 25, 2017

Temporary Teacher (Current Employee) – Montebello, CA – February 23, 2017
It's very sad to work in a place where good, loyal, and talented people are not permanently hired. Because of corruption and mismanagement of funds at the very top, hundreds are losing their jobs. Fortunately at my school site, it is filled with joy and solid learning for our students. The administration is very supportive. At the district level, greed. I hope that one day MUSD can get their priorities straight. I feel bad for faculty, and especially for the children.

Once your are in the district is very fun to work but you have to be really good or lucky to get hire because you must know someone to help you , Montebello Unified Distric is proud of "the merid system" only that is a big joke,board members and some of the top bosses do wherever they please with budgets and hiring new or qualify candidates.
Diverce Community, Teachers Staff and Administration Excellent

Human Resources Specialist Intern (Former Employee) – Montebello, California – May 22, 2015
A typical day at my internship at Montebello School District consisted of doing research, putting together statistics for eligibility lists, gathering information for the annual report and before leaving I created a leadership skills development plan for the employees district that they could use and add to their support and resources for employees binder. When I was given the chance to shadow a specialist, she showed me how to process prf's, longevity, terminations and salary adjustments. While being there I also learned the typical administrative tasks in the office, as far as assisting the employees with appointments, helping them fill out proper paperwork and scheduling appointments. The hardest part of my job was understanding the whole recruit, selection and hiring process due to the lack of exposure to the whole office. However, I did enjoy learning how eligibility lists work and learning about their rules and policies for the human resources department for classified employees.
Child Care Attendant (Former Employee) – Montebello, CA – December 29, 2014
I really enjoyed working with infants and toddlers. The only downfall was that my position was a substitute position. We did indoor and outdoor play, bottle feedings and meal times, diaper changing and end of day sanitizing.
