The right School makes all the difference
Library Aide (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – November 16, 2018
As a whole LAUSD reviews almost entirely depend on whether you are working at a school site or at the district offices downtown. It seems there’s no way to really differentiate this on Indeed. At my school, we have a pretty good principal, but the office manager/school administrative assistant is sorely lacking. On the plus side, the office technician is phenomenal and helps balance out the SAA.
When I was hired as a classified employee, I got very little introduction on what to do and how things worked. I basically stumbled across things. The district office could do better with that, and so could the school site SAA, which is ultimately driven by the principal.
The most enjoyable part of every day is working with the students. From this perspective, in my 20+ years of working, this is absolutely the best.
There have been seriously unpleasant politics around the school PTO/PTA, which doesn’t affect most employees, but if you’re a person who likes to help out, it is worth mentioning.
