fun work place with kids.
Recreation Leader (Current Employee), Albuquerque, NMSeptember 14, 2014
Pros: free snack
Cons: dealing with misbehaved children
A typical day at work is filled with many tasks. I go in and sign all 70 kids in. Then we go into rotations which are filled with activities for the kids to do. At the end of the day I have to make sure all facilities are clean and ready to go for the next school day. The biggest attribute I have learned from this job is patience. I also get along really – more... well with my co-workers. We team up to run activities and keep the kids in their proper rotation. The hardest part of the job is keeping some of the kids behaved, because not all the kids listen. the most enjoyable of the part of the job is getting to play along with the kids. – less

Organizational Change Management, ERP (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMJanuary 19, 2013
Wonderful experience.

Unclassified positions and classified positions exist at the city. Unclassified people are "at will" employees. Pay is very competitive, but project termination may be a time to look for new opportunities.

Young Workers
Therapeutic Recreational Leader (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMDecember 8, 2012
This job is rewarding as you get to work with young children and or special needs children. It teaches you a lot about a different type of world that exists out there.

Most often many employees let their title go to their head and can be very judgmental over their co-workers ideas or way they handle a situation.

The bosses and HR need to bring more – more... experienced child care/ child specialists who are trained in the field. As this job gets harder when dealing with parents who leave their children at the site on a regular. Especially parents whom are working to support their family which is often single mothers. – less
