Pros: Organizational Purpose
Cons: Labor intensive work
A typical day included greeting volunteers, introducing them to FMSC as an organization, and making sure they have a fun, enjoyable packing session within the constraints of following FDA standards.
I learned more proper forms of management. I also was able to apply more training and development techniques. I learned how to delegate more effectively to work smarter not harder.
I enjoyed working with the management and the co-workers. They were outgoing, fun, entertaining, and committed to the organization because of who it served.
The hardest part of the job was getting enough rest for the next shift/day. The most enjoyable part was knowing we were creating meals from our own hands to be distributed to kids who needed it the most.
