Peaceful Place To Work
Secretary (Former Employee), McGehee, ARJuly 10, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: part-time
Worked 9 am to 12 pm Monday thru Friday. I learned a lot about the Presbyterian beliefs that I did not know before working there. Mostly worked by myself with occasional visits from supervisor and church members. It was an easy job and I enjoyed it very much.

always busy
Youth Director (Current Employee), Las Cruces, NMMay 31, 2013
Pros: lots of support from people in the chruch
Cons: very long work weeks where i would not see my family.
This job was rewarding at times and also very draining. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to develop the relationships with the youth and also the adults that i worked with both in the office and the parents, and volunteers. The hardest part of the job was being on call 24 hours 7 days a week and never knowing when i was going to get a – more... call at 2 am. I learned that i need to spend more quality time with my family and that a team often works better than going alone. Much of my time in the office was on research, making phone calls, answering messages, setting up the next event, and counselling both youth and parents. – less

Website Design Consultant (Former Employee), Newton, NCMay 14, 2013
It was only w temporary position to build a new website but it was a wonderful time and I learned quite a bit myself. I learned new ways to build a website and I had a great time doing it. I worked on a committee of which I was the head and it was fun to hear ideas from other people. I also trained the church secretary to keep the website up to date.

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Rockford, ILDecember 2, 2012
I enjoyed working for the church. But, due to low attendance and contributions the church made cuts to the staff. They will be closing the doors to the church at the beginning at 2013. The church has been in Rockford for 150 years. Working for the church you had to be considerate of members needs and concerns while keeping things private. The only draw – more... back that I can say of this job was the funerals. You become close to the congregation and when one of the dies, the whole church morns. – less

Pros: free lunches, free field trips, great people everywhere, long breaks.
Cons: wages
I worked for a wonderful manager, learned how enjoyable work can be based on the people you work with and the choices you make.

Management was great, my co-workers were great, and I miss working there.

The hardest part of this job was having to leave it.

The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work with kids, co-workers, and being in such – more... a wonderful environment. – less
