    I have been working at Oakland Unified School District part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Mostly great staff members, competent teachers.
    -Special education services are generally better than surrounding districts.
    -Benefits and school calendar.

    Cons

    -Administration has had lots of turn over lately.
    -Disorganization at the administrative level filters down to others, making everyday work duties more tedious than they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more middle management and eliminate the top-heavy management approach with all high-level administrators who don't have time to manage all of their duties.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Oakland Unified School District in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I wasn't directly hired through OUSD. Teach For America hired me, then placed me in Oakland. I got a call from a new principal and he hired me over the phone! Very simple. Very direct. Very desperate.
