Greetings, I'm Jarvis Harden. I really have a passion for working with the youth,planning programs, and supervising. I have managerial experience. I bring great enthusiasm to the workplace, great team player and always willing to assist in any capacity needed. The hardest part of my job is saying no to a fellow team member because if I see a team member – more... in need I want to help but in the end if I keep helping he or she will not get the concept of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job being around people and being the assistance that customers need and want. – less
Swimmer and Coach for summer competitive swim team (Former Employee), mesquite TX – October 25, 2013
I taught kids to swim and helped others get ready for the competitions. This is where I learned how to communicate well and be a good leader. I loved this job more than any other. The best part was watching someone get their best time and record at a competition and knowing you had a part of helping them achieve that. There was no part that I did not – more... like. The managers and co-workers were such wonderful people, we all got along great and became a family. – less
Tennis/Arts Center Attendant (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – October 17, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: micro managing
Worked great hours, management was great to work for. Sometimes co-workers were hard to understand. The hardest part of the job was setting up the stages and the most enjoyable was the people I worked with. Area I worked was hard to advance.
Police candidate (Former Employee), City of mesquite – September 29, 2013
Pros: not pro female
Not pro female in the police department. Very good ole boy mentality. Misleading in all aspects of the interview process. The interview board was belittling and degrading. Not a friendly place to work and this department does not follow the state motto....
Recreation Leader (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – June 20, 2013
Pros: great kids, great coworkers
I worked as a "recreation leader," and it was a pretty good job overall, except for my supervisor. She was very unfair and whenever there was a chance for me to work some extra hours I was always kept in the dark. She didn't like me and honestly I don't know why. I had been transferred from my orignal "workstation" to where she was located. My co-workers – more... weere great and my other superiors were good. I had fun working with the kids. KMy only issue was my supervisor and til this day I still don't know what I did wrong for her not to "accept" me. – less
Park Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – April 8, 2013
Pros: get out of tickets from local police.
Cons: hard work and troubleshooting situations.
Take care of parks, weed eat, mow and blow. During winter the jobs where different everyday. I learned how to drive and use many vehicles and equipment. Management was military like, all work and no play but they weren't bad people. My co-workers were a rag tag bunch of people but I learned a lot through them. The hardest part would be the hot Texas – more... sun during summer with all the work being outside. The most enjoyable part was the pay and the activities I got to do each day. – less
