Productive work place, friendly environment and positive people.
Teachers Assistant (Former Employee), Lincoln, RIFebruary 18, 2015
Pros: 30 mins lunch break and nice co-workers.
Cons: no breaks and short shifts.
An expected day at work would be welcoming, smiling faces and everyone is being productive. I get along with co-workers very well, for the most part I gain a long term relationship. The hardest part of a job would be when I first start trying to get the hang of things but after that I should be fine. The most enjoyable part of a job is feeling safe and confident in my work.

love the kids, its fun but stressful with not enough staff
Program Aide (Former Employee), reno nvFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: free meals, field trips, physical activity
Cons: no breaks, no health benefits, not enough hours or pay for what we do.
gym or rec time in the morning then walked them to school. afternoon picked them up from school, took roll. gym time then homework, dinner, outside and finally our programmed group activities. end day cleaning up. I learned a lot about todays kids and what is life is like for them. our management was ok needed improvement but was understandable cause we were short staff. I loved my co workers we all got along well but I felt they could improve on some stuff as an employee. the hardest part about it was not having enough staff and or martials needed for the job. the most enjoyable part of the job was spending time with the kids and doing art projects. I really loved that job cause of the kids, no matter what it was that day they put a smile on face knowing they enjoyed my time as much I enjoyed theirs!!

enjoyable and challenging
Physical education assistant (Current Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: supportive company, fulltime hours on days off
Cons: no chance for growth for parttimers without degree despite seniority with the club
Being able to say you love what you do is one thing, being able to show it is another. Working with children is not for all and unless you have the patience and the desire to grow as a person it's not for you. I have to follow a daily schedule of activities as well as be coach, doctor, mediator, or teacher. Being adaptable is crucial to the job. I have learned and continue to learn that unless I'm willing to learn and be modest as well as humble I cant learn nor enjoy my job. Management has changed often while I've been at the club and had to adjust to the different personalities but none the less being a subordinate is not an issue and I 'm able to work with others effectively. My coworkers are a pleasure to be around and while they are younger in years I address them as colleagues not to use age as an excuse to be haughty.The hardest part of the job is having to deal with a new child who may have issues and not being told about this and then realizing the parents are not supportive in terms of how to deal with the child.the most enjoyable part is being part of these kids growth, and playing a part in who they become.

TEEN COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Marlin, TXFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: good pay, flexible hours
Cons: no breaks, no benefits
Working at the Boys and Girls Club was fun most of the time. Most of the kids were respectful and listened, which made the job easier and more fun. Had great coworkers and the boss was extremely considerate if an issue came up or we needed a day off. The most enjoyable part of the job would be arts and crafts with the kids. The hardest part was when there were children who did not want to follow instructions. I learned how to communicate with children of all ages, how to keep them interested, and how to manage a large group. The days seemed long but, they were always full of laughter and smiles.

Volunteer (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: direct activities on the outside field of young men.
Cons: short breaks
Come in early, sign in start maintenance, homework help with the children then have activties. I learned how co-op with the children. Management was very helpful to me I got through the program to where I am now. Co-workers were nice people -helpful. The hardest part of the job was leaving when the children's parents would pick them up at the end of the day. Most enjoyable part of the job seeing the smiles on the children's faces while teaching them and playing with them.

Nice work place working with children and mentoring them.
Program Aide (Current Employee), Concord, NcFebruary 1, 2015
Pros: sometimes there were 30+ kids in one group, hard to control them all/
Cons: being able to help kids when needed.
Typical day at work, involves me providing snacks for the children. Giving them instructions and guidance. Management , was nice and gave good advice when needed. Co-workers and I all got along well , joked around a little with each other. Hardest part of the job , I would have to say would be keeping the children under control , they could get out of hand sometimes. The most enjoyable part , would be seeing the kids smile and laugh , also seeing them get happy when they would see me.
