    I worked at Hayward USD full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The starting salary for a first teacher is high and there are unofficial, loose programs in place to help new hires become aquatinted with the school's policies.

    Cons

    The staff is incredibly unfriendly and unwelcoming. The turnover rate is extremely high, which may be why the staff rarely goes out of their way to meet new hires. The administration offers kind words and support to a select few members of staff, and often snubs all other accomplishments from staff who do not belong to this group.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get to know and appreciate all of the good things that your staff is doing, not just those in performing arts. Offer more support to the drama department! If a parent mentions a helpful teacher during the coffee with the principal meeting, reach out to that teacher and actually TELL them.

    Pros

    Great pay, varied work sites

    Cons

    Terrible management unbelievably so. If the union staff were privatized the management would have been terminated long ago. Poor organization and communication from staff.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Get rid of unprofessional people who show up to work whenever they feel like it and don't communicate with their workers. Consider private contractors for custodian work Because the current situation is not working.
