I have been working at Riverside USD part-time (Less than a year)
I work for the RUSD, at the Poly High School site an Special Education Instructional Aide I, and I have to say I love my job. I work with an assigned teacher, who is extremely kind. I have my own desk in the classroom as well as my own set of keys to the classroom and to the staff bathroom. The staff and faculty are extremely friendly and kind and make the work environment pleasant to work in. There is lots of support from the faculty and staff. I have access to a computer as well as regularly receive job opportunity notices from our union. Another pro is you learn who your union reps are very quickly.
There is really only one con and that's in the RUSD you only get paid once a month and its always at the end of the month. Meaning, you get paid on the last day of every month instead of the usual every 15th of the month. This can make budgeting tricky.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Riverside USD (Riverside, CA) in July 2016.
I went through two interviews. Both were panel interviews, first at a middle school with one teacher and one administrator and the second at the district with a variety of teachers and administrators. Each took the time to ask a one question.
