Performing arts instructor
Performing Arts Instructor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 23, 2016
The community served by The Harbor is in great need of affordable performing arts classes, accessible to children an adults. It is very sad that the executive leadership of The Harbor is terribly unprofessional and disrespectful towards their teaching staff. Dirty rooms lacking the proper materials to teach are the norm. There is no training or advancement opportunities and they like to post part time positions to deny their employees the opportunity to have benefits. It is a disgustingly ran "non profit" and the executive director has a God complex like no other. If you can afford to not work here, run. Run very far. Very ungrateful and vile employer.
Pros
No pros. Well, students are pretty awesome, you always learn something.
Cons
Executive director, executive leadership, pay, no benefits, no training, no perks, no advancement opportunities.

Exciting and productive envrionmnet working with youths
Facilitator of Program Components (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 29, 2015
A typical day at Boys and Girls Harbor is being greeted by your peers and members of The organization, follow the curriculum that's prepared for day for the youth which includes paperwork, networking and meetings but finally when it is time to work with the children that's the most rewarding time of the day. what I have learned from management is how to strive for excellence and challenge yourself to do and learn more (what you take in is what you give out) There's no hard part of working at Boys and Girls Habor, it's very simple do your job and do it well and that's what every employee mind set is there no matter what job postion they hold.
Pros
educative, challenging, workplace
Cons
Every now and then you must take a mental health day

Productive and an amazing place to learn about the kitchen.
Temporary Assistant Cook (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 1, 2013
Walking into the kitchen, every morning at 6:50 to start preparing for the day was the highlight of my time there. To begin, the menu was fairly easy to remember, it would repeat itself every three (3) weeks, sometimes there would be changes, but the changes were always beneficial to the students there. Everyone who works there, even on the same floor, were super nice, and genuine. My then co-workers were serious when needed, and would joke about many things, but what was always on their, and my mind, were the children, and how happy they were getting good quality food. The hardest part of the job, was my very first day there. It was overwhelming, and a wake-up call for me personally. Cooking for approximately 250 kids was something new to me, but I eventually got through it. It was the best time of my life, working there, even if it was temporary.
