The eight years that I worked for the City of Henderson were the most memorable years of my life. I started out in 2004 as a volunteer Counselor in Training. I was a CIT until March 2006. In April 2006 I applied to be a Recreation Assistant I. A year later I got promoted to a Recreation Assistant II and when I graduated High School in 2008, I got promoted to a Senior Recreation Assistant. I learned so much while being a Senior Recreation Assistant. As a SRA I was responsible for training new staff members as well as supervising 20+ staff members. A typical day at work was filing emergency forms, participation forms, processing transactions, scheduling appointments, cash handling, organizing and cleaning storage, front desk, and play areas, organizing events and daily routines for the kids zone program, daily communicate to staff as well as my supervisor, etc. I didn't find anything that challenging about the job probably because of how long I have been working there. I'm sure when I first started working it was challenging because everything was new, but it's like any job, you get the hang of things. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the public. Overall my experience was wonderful!
room for advancement to a certain extent.
