    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Palmdale School District part-time (More than 5 years)


    Automated call system and online access to jobs through subfinder. Pay is comparable to pay in areas of LA County with a higher cost of living. The district covers K-8, with many schools within a relatively small geographical boundary. Flexible schedule.


    The hourly pay seems to be decreasing, which is the case for pretty much all subs in LA County.

    Advice to Management

    Train secretaries on how to interact with subs and make sure ahead of time that 1) subs have a handout with Bell Schedule, including grade level transitions such as lunch, recess, and snack time, 2)That there is a working clock in the classroom the sub will be in , and 3) That subs are given keys that can open the classroom where they will be, and 4) Correct start time errors on the job description. Perhaps the time to start posted on subfinder should be the time the first bell rings , with instructions on how many minutes to arrive before that time as a standard practice across the schools. Also, all schools should be in session for the same length of time across the district.

    Substitute Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Palmdale, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Palmdale School District (Palmdale, CA) in March 2009.


    I submitted an application, resume, and supporting documents such as college transcripts, test-passing verification, recommendation letters, etc. I was then contacted and invited for an interview with the Certificated specialist. There might have been one more person that I interviewed with, but sadly, I don't remember that far back.

    Interview Questions

    • "You arrive at a classroom and there are no lesson plans. There are no other teachers in your grade available to ask about the curriculum, and the office isn't answering their phone. What do you do?"   1 Answer


    There were no negotiations. They have a standing salary which is offered to all substitutes with a 30-day emergency credential.
