Substitute Teacher

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee)
Fontana, CA

I have been working at Fontana USD as a contractor for more than a year

ProsFlexible work schedule, Steady sub assignments if your are willing to cover Elementary, Middle, High, and Special Education teaching contexts, if you enjoy working with students of varying ages, attitudes, and learning abilities you will enjoy the job.

ConsUnless you are willing to work two jobs, this job is no way to make a living. Base pay per deim is lowest in S.B. county. You also have no benefits, if you dont work you dont get paid, you wont have access to medical insurance, sick days, vacation pay, or retirement plans. You are a per deim as needed employee and are very expendable.

Great Place to Work!

ProsFriendly environment and great management support.

ConsBudget problems due to State cut backs. Union rules protect employees based on seniority not competence.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more formal reviews and discipline procedures, so incompetent and unmotivated employees can be laid off instead of the last hired.

Great benefits, poor training and poor morale

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fontana, CA

I have been working at Fontana USD

ProsYOu get great benefits (as do most government employees) and you get more vacation and holidays than most do. Many top managers seem to want to do better.

ConsLittle or no training for new employees, just dump you into your job. Management tolerates employees with poor skills or bad work ethics while laying off hard-working employees. Management seems to think it can attract quality employees by only offering ten-month positions and usually less than 8 hours per day.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at each employees with the mindset of who is most valuable and really contributions to the success of the district instead of pure senority. Fire those employees who do stupid and dangerous things instead of doing nothing because your don't want to go thru the hassle of paperwork to fire them.
