Custodian (Former Employee), Owasso, OK – August 26, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: worked every weekend and major holiday for four years, low pay
This job was what I needed to work my way through school. I am a mother of three kids and a wife. I needed a job that was flexible. Working part time, going to school full time and balancing my family, this job was right for me at the time.
I enjoy teaching the children,and watching them grow
Daycare Teacher (Current Employee), 6701 JFK Boulevard, NLR AR 72116 – August 25, 2015
Pros: Sick leave, vacation time, inclement weather with pay
Cons: no health benefits
I have a productive day as far as taking care of the children by meeting their needs. I've learned how to use management skills in high and low stress volume periods. I have had some difficult co- workers, and that has been the hardest part of the job.
It is a fun place to work and I really have a strong passion for what I teach. Excellent staff, and members. I love it!
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee), Appleton, WI – August 5, 2015
Pros: The staff take good care of me.
Cons: It always seemed as though I am working from members, even if I am in church on Sunday.
I work closely with the property manager, my supervisor and good friend. During renovation, light construction, I am a part of the decision making and a contact person. I do a lot of the light maintenance.
Administrative Assistant - Childrens Ministries (Former Employee), Heber Springs, AR – August 1, 2015
Churches do not run themselves! A lot of people have to be involved and I made the schedules. Spent a lot of time on the phone texting and emailing. The people that I worked with were great and a blessing.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Artesia, NM – July 24, 2015
I'm a people person and love the day to day interaction. Love the hours as well. Independence is also a plus. Hardest part of the job is food pantry day. Hard to see how many children go hungry in our community and no one seems to care.
Wonderful congregation to work with and very accommodating.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Blackwell, OK – July 15, 2015
Pros: Working with church members and taking care of them.
Cons: Difficulty working with new pastor and watching the church members suffer.
I would start my day with accounts receivable and accounts payable. I learned how to work with different accounting systems and how to submit tax paperwork for a non-profit business. The reason I left was because of management. The pastor they hired after I started was very difficult to work with and very rude to the congregational members. The hardest part of the job was trying to work with the new pastor and the 30 minute drive everyday. The most enjoyable part was getting to know the members and spending time with them.
Financial Secretary (Current Employee), Plattsmouth, NE – July 8, 2015
Pros: Being with people of faith.
I work part-time for the church tracking donations and overseeing the weekly counters. During the time that I have been tracking this information I have worked to refine the process and created a new database. These duties is accomplished in my own time, but with the need to provide reports in a specified time frame.
Director of Thrift Store (Former Employee), Fort, Myers, Fl – June 15, 2015
Great experience, I enjoy it very much and wish that the store was not seasonal so that I could stay for a long time. I helped a lot of homeless people. Fed them and gave them clothes. It was very satisfying to me.
This is a great work environment with a family to work ration
Youth Director/ Head sound technician (Current Employee), Levelland, TX – May 18, 2015
Pros: It is a job that is not only fun but life changing
Cons: It is difficult becuase anytime you work with people there are difficulties.
I have learned how to work with people which I think is an invaluable skill. I also have gained great experience in planning and working through the details that are so important in planning. The hardest part of this job is keeping everyone involved happy and satisfied. To help large groups find compromises with one another.
