You get what you put into it
Family Service Counselor (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 21, 2017
I came into the job knowing it was a sales job, however, I decided to just service as many families as I could instead of seeing them as dollar signs. It paid off! The base is minimum wage.... but you don't have to make that. I made minimum wage for the first 6 weeks... that's because I was in training and getting to know the park. After that, I tried to help families I knew, and families I would get to know, and it has paid off. I was meant for this.
This job is NOT for everyone. You can't sit and wait for families to walk through the door. You MUST be willing to create relationships, make appointments, do seminars, buy a table at an event.... treat it like your business and you will go far. If you treat it like a job or if you are just trying to chase a dollar, this job is not for you - you won't make enough to eat noodles every day.
Helping families, great co-workers
Sometimes days are long
