Cashier (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – May 13, 2017
A typical day is spent talking to customers and taking care of the pool. I have learned self control at the pool, and managment. The work place is fun enviorment especially for the customers that come often. The hardest part about the job is the summer heat. the enjoyable part is that it is a pool and we have fun while working. The managment at the pool owned by the city is great.
My typical work day would be walking into a clean and fun environment with plenty of people who love their job. I learned how to maintain and manage at the work place due to some awesome coworkers who helped guide me.
great coworkers, fun work celebrations, and the kids are so much fun
The director of the department at the time, had his own ideas of what he wanted regardless of federal and state regulations, and attempted to push these ideas through which cost him his job in the end.
The IT department is a good group to work in now, and has been able to provide for the community and workforce.
The work was hard, but rewarding. Limited staff to work with, but very good, trained, and able to perform the task required.
The City of Irving Texas is a growing community that has seen it's better days when the Dallas Cowboys were in town. Still has a lot going for it and could be doing a better job of getting companies to move in.
•Supervised summer camp attendants in recreational activities, led field trips, supervised swimming activities, and ensured the camper’s safety in a fun environment. •Successfully acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to perform the front desk responsibilities. •Accepted any/all challenges given to me by the department director. •Enthusiastically operated within all special events put on by the City in connection to the recreation center.
A typical day at work would be coming in and interacting with not only children but regulars that come in. What I have learned from this job is time management on getting events and classes done for the customers satisfaction. Management here is put together well and organized. My co-workers are very friendly and modest about one an others ideas. The hardest part of my job is not being able to speak other languages because the recreational center has many cultures (very diverse). The most enjoyable part about my job is that there is not dual moment with the children (entertaining) and customers (friendly).
Lead After School/ Camp Counselor (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – October 6, 2015
On a typical day, I come in and help set up the room before the kids get out of school and print out the attendance sheet. Once that is finish, my team and I, go pick the kids up from school, which is semi connected to the Recreation Center where I work. I check them in, and walk back over to the Recreation Center. Once we have all our kids settled and organized, we take them to the gym for about an hour and do gym games with them. After that hour is over, we then go to the Large Activity Room, where we provide them snack and that usually last about 30 minutes. After snack time is over I then separate the kids that have homework from those that don't. When the children don't have homework, I still advise that they read, so that they are not distracting those that do have homework. I then go around and help those that need help on homework. After about an hour of homework time, the kids then gather their belongings and my staff and I get ready to either take them outside or to the game room until their parents come get them. If I am not working with the kids, I am in the office, enrolling people into the various classes that we offer, or taking payments and answering phone calls. There is a total of 4 staff, including myself that work with the kids in the After School Program. We strive to help these kids be the best that they can be. Each week we pick leaders from each grade level that we feel have followed directions, helped out when needed, and set an example for their peers. I love working with a diverse group of children and look forward to seeing them and hearing allmore... sorts of crazy stories that they have to tell.less
Heavy Equiment Operator / Route Driver (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – November 30, 2014
Most of my days were spent outside, driving a truck, while interacting with the public. I really enjoyed working outside and getting to meet new people. I would have to say the most difficult part of the job was operating a boom around low hanging power lines.
The day is hectic dealing with crime victims I have learned listening skills, computer skills, and managing those with tempers. I have learned to depend on my co-workers to watch what I cannot see and teach me what I do not know. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the child victims. The most enjoyable is seeing a crying child smile after they receive a teddy bear and a hug.
