Enjoyed learning how to work on a team and with juveniles.
Juvenile Drug Court Case Manager (Former Employee), Evanston, WYJuly 25, 2014
Pros: enjoyed working with juveniles and working with the team members.
Cons: contract was not renewed so i was no longer able to do my job.
A typical day working as a juvenile case manager was keeping track of each of my clients day to day activities, working with probation officers, school resource officers, treatment teams, and parents to – more... assist each individual in progressing successfully through the program. Facilitated weekly staff meetings to discuss each client and worked on assisting them through the program. Most enjoyable part of my job was working with each juvenile helping them set goals and watching them progress through the program. – less

Productive and Field Trips
Camp & Afterschool Counselor (Former Employee), Evanston, ILOctober 5, 2013
The day usually started at 8:00 am, the kids usually would arrive at 8:30-9:00. As they arrived they would go in the gym after their parents signed them in, they would play with the other kids they were – more... already there. At about 9:30 or so we would do the morning verse and exercises. Then there would be some thing educational for the kids to do or we would get ready to go on the field trip that was planned for the day. I learned to handle multiple children at once, even though I had another person helping me. My co-workers were good to work with didn't have any problems with anyone. Hardest part would have been when I was left alone with the group alone and the would get completely out of control. The most enjoyable part of my job was being around the kids and having fun. – less

Very fun environment for young adults
Lakefront Lifeguard (Former Employee), Evanston, ILApril 11, 2012
Pros: working with other young people/friends/classmates, easy job unless an emergency situation arose
Cons: always in the sun, popularity effected harshness from supervisors
A community of young adults working together and supervising each other everyday. We basically got paid to get tan unless we were actively on duty in the lifeguarding chair. We were always ready to respond, but it was a relaxed job environment.
