Good Mission, Difficult daily life
Membership (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 2, 2018
The mission of Girl Scouts is fantastic, and they are headed in the right direction, however you are extremely overworked and underpaid.
They are in a constant state of flex, and that makes the workplace stressful, along with when there is change, the volunteer base that you work with, do not take it well.
The demands of the council are not always unreasonable, but the daily demands of the volunteers can take a toll. Hardest part of the job is working with volunteers that do not want to follow policy, and having policies that are "made up" and need to be rectified.
The most enjoyable part of the job is helping girls become leaders. Mission of STEM and outdoor adventure is fantastic, but it doesn't translate to the volunteers.
Demanding and constant change.
