  1. "Good Pay, Little Work"

      I worked at Irvine Unified School District part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      The pay is competitive (70 for <4 hours and 110 for full day). Most teachers leave out lesson plans for you to follow step by step. Most days were easy where you just have to make sure students turn something in at the end of the day. There is a portal where you can choose your own work/call days. It's very flexible.

      Cons

      Classroom behavior varies. Some students can be disrespectful to the subs.

      I have been working at Irvine Unified School District part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Short work hours, good pay

      Cons

      No vacation time and won’t hire you for a full time position, so no benefits.

      Advice to Management

      Offer benefits.

      I have been working at Irvine Unified School District part-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Pay is great, teachers are fantastic, students are adorable.

      Cons

      Not enough hours, too much expected of each individual in limited work hours, very poor administrators.

      Advice to Management

      Do the right thing for the students and their parents, not the most cost effective thing for the school district. This is education not politics. Shameful.

        I worked at Irvine Unified School District for more than a year

        Pros

        Set your own schedule, know exactly what you're getting paid, decide which classes you want to teach

        Cons

        If this is your only job, it might be tight financially to get by. For a student, someone that can have a second job, someone that just wants disposable income, or a retiree, this job is amazing.

        Advice to Management

        NA
