youth leader (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – September 12, 2016
This is a babysitting job. Babysitting children that are very disrespectful and uneducated. You will have no respect from superiors who do not have your back or know what they are doing, they are also very lazy. They will blame you for their mistakes. They expect you to instruct the students without any materials, because they either will not provide you with the materials needed or will take too long to purchase them. Then when students don't get their work done, the superiors blame you. You are also blamed for the students' terrible results. Worst job I ever had. You also have to buy material from your own pocket because again, they do not supply enough materials.
disrespectful, uneducated students, no support from superiors
Youth Leader (Current Employee) – PASADENA – August 3, 2016
This was the worst job I think I ever came arcoss. They dont treat people with respect. They belittle you in so many ways. This program has changed ever since certain people became in charge. They have no sports at certain schools and they have unfair cheerleading competitions where they have a professional coach at one school who put these girls who travel for competition with girls who are first timers and take everything from these girls. It was sad and disappointing to see that you have to shake your butt and be fast to win 1st place. Im raising ladies not thots.
Accounting Technician (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – May 17, 2016
Management had lack of control and were unable to make changes that would benefit their employees. A lot of people that are in management positions have no business being there, lack of people skills and willingness to take on their job causes loss of good employees.
ALOT of time off
Hard to move forward and grow- need to wait for people to retire.
Child Development Teacher (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – February 5, 2016
It was a pleasure to work at Pasadena Unified School District and to be apart of their Early Childhood Education program. I miss being apart of PUSD, they really care about their students , especially the ECE department.
Site Coordinator (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – October 3, 2015
This program helped build my management skills and my ability to communicate effectively with others, especially with those in higher administrative positions. I learned how to work great with a team and to bring our vision to a reality. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the children reach their full potential.
Youth Leader/Tutor (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – May 21, 2015
I wish I could get paid more for the stuff I do with the kids. Because, I actually have my own class room with 20 something kids and we do homework and we also go over other educational stuff with students only for ten dollars an hour.
It was great to interact with students with need of an after school program

HVAC (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – October 4, 2014
Great place to work and the people there were extremely friendly. Unfortunately I moved out of the area and couldn't make the commute to work but it was a great experience for me and I miss the people that were not only my co workers but became my friends.
Work/Life Balance, Good Pay, Hoildays, Benifits, Great Environment

Site Coordinator (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – September 30, 2014
I Operated an After-School enrichment program. I was responsible for handling budget, hiring staff, designed, organized, and implemented a variety of after school curriculum programs that must appeal to ages 11-17. The best part of this job was being able to work with kids and help shape their lives for the future. Hardest part of this job is the benefits weren't the best and neither was the salary.
Handicap Instructional Aide (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – August 14, 2014
It's nice to have holidays and summer off with my kids, but they really need to get their communication with their employees together. I love working with the kids, but the pay is not good. You have to love working with kids because you really are not doing it for the pay.
