excellent work place
Parks worker (Current Employee), Downey, CAApril 22, 2014
Pros: working days
Cons: not enough hours
My day would start by arriving 30 minutes before my start time,making sure everything is pre set to go for the day, i supervise 1 person,which this person is very young,but i teach him as much as i know and more for the fact that i might not be there one day, and so he would know what to do,and pick up where we left off,as the hardest part of my job, – more... there is no hard part. My enjoyable part of the day is that i am outdoors, communicating with the daily people that admire my work.... – less

Volunteen (Former Employee), Downey, CASeptember 3, 2012
Pros: got to help with kids
A typical day was to go to a park to take care of kids but I also worked a booth where I had to convince people/strangers to play a game at the local Festival. I realized that I have great communication skills. I worked with people my age and some adults. the job wasn't hard at all and the best part was taking care of kids because I enjoy it. I love – more... talking to and meeting new people. – less
