Fun Workplace & Help Children
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Decatur, ILJuly 12, 2012
Pros: good work environment, friendly people, good hours
Cons: short breaks, crazy boss
Overall my job at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Illinois was amazing. It was the best job that i have ever had. Unfortunately working there requires alot of education that i didn't have. Even though i could do the work, I still wasn't treated as fair as I thought i should have been.

Great Company to Volunteer With!
Mentor (Former Employee), Manchester, CTJuly 2, 2012
I volunteered for BBBS in Connecticut for over 6 months. This company was always responsive to my needs and suggestions. They connected me with an awesome little girl who was a perfect match for me. The hardest part of this position was having to send her back to her family each day I spent with her. I loved teaching her new things, and being a part – more... of her growing up process. – less

A good company to work for
Donation Center Attendant (Former Employee), Provo, UTMay 19, 2012
Pros: fairly easy call system, supportive management
Cons: one person on shift at the donation station
Organized donations that came in.
Took calls & called out to schedule pick-ups of donation items as well as take care of customer complains.
I learned how to take care of customers in an effective manner & left them satisfied.
Management was good at making sure things at work were flowing well.
The hardest part would be when too many donations would – more... come in all at once or too many people would donate all at once, since there was only one person on shift taking care of it.
The most enjoyable part was being able to turn an angry customer into a satisfied customer at the end of a call. – less

Beauty of seeing my direct impact on community
Enrollment Specialist (Current Employee), Newark, NJApril 25, 2012
The work/life balance is great, beauty of working in a small office is knowing your co-workers on a personal level and avoiding a lot of the distracting office politics. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with the youth and their families.

STUDENT-CASE MANAGER (Former Employee), 224 Pine St.May 7, 2014
I was on a field placement with Big Brothers Big Sisters and they were willing to teach me all I needed to know about the field of work that I am studying in school. The work place made me feel like I was a part their team. I learned a lot about myself and about the agency. I liked that it was a job that had weekends off and that you worked 9 to 5 Monday – more... to Friday this helped me to be home for my children. – less

A very moving productive and friendly place.
Experienced Typist (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONJanuary 21, 2014
Pros: meeting people
Cons: not there working
Good morning all. Start to the list that I received the night before for the work day today. Learned that everyone is the same but in different situations and not done to their own accord. Looking at people differently is a good thing. My co-workers were helpful, understanding, and very happy.
The hardest part of this job was that not all could be helped – more... at once sometimes it took a bit before you could phone and say we have someone who is available to you. Seeing a smile on others faces.
Loved being a volunteer - learned lots and now more understanding of others. – less
