Casual workplace for summer.
Assistant Director (Former Employee) –  Stanford, CAOctober 5, 2016
Working here was a challenge, but you meet wonderful people. The hiring team really does their job incredibly well, and most instructors and teaching assistants are true team players. The workday is casual, which helps with the summer camp vibe we try to deliver to the students.

The training offered to summer staff leaves off critical teaching points such as conversational how-to's with parents, directors, and students, crisis management, effective communication, and work-life balance. Staff issues may arise due to these shortcomings--get ready!

While the team is wonderful for the most part, the job informally requires unpaid social hours. It is not unpleasant, but knocks off the work-life balance people might want to enjoy during the summer months especially.

I learned plenty about the administrative side of running a large summer camp. Be ready to ask often for help from your regional directors, and definitely ask for guidance in effective ways to run activities logistically/obtain food for staff. There is no need to reinvent the wheel here because the camp CAN work like a well-oiled machine.

Intern Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 26, 2014
Majority of the time we helped students understand what their doing whether it's programming or game design. I learned how to troubleshoot error right on the spot, worked with class size up to 25 to assist and educate in their programming projects. Management and co-workers were respectable and did their jobs without trouble. Hardest part of the job was probably not the job itself but the commute to the job site. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction feeling of tutoring students and they actually understand what their doing.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
commute was long, wanted to work more weeks in the same campus
