Don't trying becoming a low paid laborer!
Laborer (Current Employee) –  Forest ParkJune 5, 2014
Great to work outdoors but poor management skills and little concern for the little man. As a laborer you do all the dirty work which reflects to the public. Little to no recognition!
Pros
benefits and time off
Cons
have been fighting for a raise for a few years.

Great volunteer network!
Volunteer Restoration Worker (Current Employee) –  ILJuly 9, 2013
A fun way to spend time and help nature. Light-duty jobs available and labor intensive jobs - something for everyone! Wonderful people with massive amounts of knowledge. It's like a family or close community - everyone cares about each other.
Pros
You choose schedule - volunteer, great people

Very interesting place of business

Pros

only the short breaks.
