They are a total of 3 8 hours shifts average about 300 calls per shift, what I have learned is being able to remain calm in stressful situations, ability to multi-task and perform well under pressure.. Hardest thing about the job is hearing and dealing with either death tragedy occurring to people. But the most enjoyable part at being at this job is everyday presents a new challenge and it is never repetitive.

The City of Brownsville was a great overall experience for me. Working with the City helped me develop people skills as well as the feel of how a community works together to manage tasks and accomplish goals. I really enjoyed the community events that I participated in and while working at the Park as a supervisor, I was able to gain many perspectives from children, parents, and community leaders on how to properly supervise and monitor sports activities and community events in a safe and professional manner. Working with the Parks and Recreation Mobile Unit, I was able to canvas the community and spread the word that the city would be offering special programs to students alongside their parents and help encourage a healthier environment at local parks and city facilities. The most enjoyable part of my job was the interaction with less fortunate youth by BBQ-ing large amounts of hamburgers and hot dogs for them, as well as participating in sports related activities side by side with them. This taught me the value of volunteer work and the true essence of parks and recreation department.

In this job we communicate with the kids. We get them to entertain themselves. We teach them new things, play sports, do arts and crafts, go out for field trips, have events for the kids and invite family members. Do janitorial work if necessary. We are responsible for delivery of all recreations, leisure and sport programs and activities in order to provide opportunities and encourage and promote a healthy lifestyle for all community residents.
The job was amazing no two days are alike. I learned a lot and gathered valuable experience. The management could be better and I choose not to elaborate. The hardest part of the job is making sure you don't let the job affect your personal life. To make sure you go home every night to your family. The most enjoyable part is when you know you helped somebody.
Going to work on a daily bases was always exciting. In the line of work that I performed it was always an up and down event. Many of times I was a father, mother, brother, sister, priest or just a shoulder for someone to cry on. The hardest part was the crashes that involved children getting hurt. The most enjoyable part of my job was the day someone would come up to me and thank me. But, those didn't come my way to many times. Yet, I loved my job.
