Pros: money, painting in front of visitors, people/students could see anything that we painted.
Cons: some of the management team was uptight
The Mayor Daley Summer Youth Program was fun while it being an experience.My typical day would start at 8:00am by gathering inside the classroom to discuss the work assignments for the day/week,and my day would end at 4:00pm.
I learned the true meaning of interpersonal & communication skills,and I learned how to operate the power washer which was very – more... cool,while learning the fundamentals of painting because there's always room to learn something new,even if it's the most basic thing.
Management was honestly ok.
My co-workers were actually my classmates,and that in itself was quite the experience,only because I got the opportunity to see the serious ''worker'' in them.The best part is that we learned from one another,as well as helped one another regardless of race or who disliked someone because at the end of the day,we're a TEAM.
The hardest part of the job was getting a specific assignment done in a timely manner without allowing anything else to coincede with what we were working on.
The most enjoyable part of the job was having fun while working.On top of that,since it was a job I love doing,I absolutely enjoyed each and everyday. – less
