    I have been working at Newport Mesa USD (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Close to the ocean. Cooled by ocean breezes from the beautiful Pacific.

    Cons

    Can't think of any at the moment. I was laid off from my job in Adult Ed, and would love to go back to teaching ESL several days or nights a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have wished in the past when substituting for a quicker response when calling the main office asking them to remove a student.

    It was like any janitor working at a school.

    Pros

    You could work at your own school. All your friends can talk to you while working and it takes off some of your tuition

    Cons

    It's a lot of pointless work and you have to wake up super early in the morning to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us better work

    I worked at Newport Mesa USD part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very close to my home, loved working with the kids, alot of the employees were nice.

    Cons

    No benefits, principal did not follow school rules and "throws people under the bus" quite often. Discipline was very lax with no follow through on punnishment. Some kids were out of control and very disrespectful. Enormous amount of bullying that was either not addressed or even encouraged by one teacher. No training provided and then any authority is taken away when you try to enforce school rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look more closely at the way the school is run by the principal.

    Pros

    Good upper management who are knowledgeable and want to do the right thing for kids.

    Cons

    As with most schools, the front desk ladies at most schools are gossipy and unpleasant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more selective in hiring process.
