Volunteer (Former Employee) – Harlingen,TX – April 2, 2013
Being in the Girl Scouts gave me a lot of experience in working with young girls. Once we were old enough, it was our job to look after and instruct these girls the way we were instructed when we were young. I can use this towards a professional job someday.
I am a volunteer parent and have served as Cookie manager for two years. I also assist with cookie pick up and delivery to Cookie manger home. Participate in cookie booth sells while assisting girl scouts to achieve their goal with goal setting, decision making, money management, develop strong people skills and business ethnics.

They terminate people prematurely depending on the what mood the CEO is in. They don't trust their employees and they make that apparent up front. Very un-organized the CEO bullies the employees, instead of implementing mentor-ship, she implements tormentor-ship.
No job security, and they do exactly the opposite of what they say.
I love working for Girl Scouts! The culture is a culture all its own, weather you work in facilities or are a troop leader working in community. Everyone works extremely hard at this amazing non-profit and the end goal is always the Girl. I check my email when I come, in I look for things that need to be scheduled, I look for contracts that need work, invoices that need to be coded, things that need to be signed and prioritize them from most important to least. I meet with my team and coordinate efforts to back up anyone who is out for the day. I encounter vendors who may be scheduled to preform work onsite or at one of our seventeen facilities. I create purchase orders and seek approval for previously budgeted work to be done. I code and track any invoices that need to go out in our check run at the end of the week while working with my supervisor for project approval. I scan and keep meticulous records of everything I turn in, just in case anyone needs to refer back to the work agreed upon. I also check in first thing with my interns and make sure of their status on the project management system and note their progress. I complete and signed their time sheet at the end of each week. I work with the operations team to ensure other departments who have invoices in excess of $800.00 get the proper approvals. I could not ask for a better group to work with, I am motivated with Kudos and our monthly meetings and recognized with tokens of appreciation at least once a month. I am also able to volunteer with different teams during the year as opportunities present themselves andmore... incorporated service projects where I can.less
Camp Counsellor (Former Employee) – Maineville – July 13, 2017
This job was very rewarding, with everyday offering new challenges and each week having different children with vibrant and funny personalities. Leading activities for the children is fun, and gives you an oppurtunity to spend a lot of time outside.
Membership & Community Development Manager (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – July 10, 2017
My time working for the Girl Scouts was filled with challenges and beauty. Heartbreak and victory. Working for a nonprofit is like that. No one works in the Nonprofit sector to get rich. They do it for the love of the organization. I loved every minute there. I would never have left if I hadn't had to move for my husband's job.
Working with Girls to make them the best they can be!
Community Outreach Associate (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – July 10, 2017
I served as a Community Outreach Associate for two years. I enjoyed presenting activities to the girls, and this was a great opportunity for improving my public speakings skills! The schedule is great for college students, stay-at-home moms, and those looking for some extra income. However, due to the nature of this position, hours are limited to the school day. This is definitely the most fun job I have ever had, but now I need a stable income. The Outreach Managers are a pleasure to work with though! They always took the Associates' ideas into consideration.
Amazing Coworkers, helped young girls, flexible schedule
Program Associate (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 7, 2017
I absoultly loved working for girl scouts. it was like getting paid to play. However i know the company has changed a lot since i was there. Unfortunately i think its become more about the bottom line and less about the girls.
Outreach Facilitator (Current Employee) – Rock Island, IL – July 7, 2017
Every day is different, schedules are not a typical 9-5, management is great, the hardest part of this job is if you are not able to connect to some girls, the most enjoyable is being a mentor to those who look up to you
Recruitment Specialist (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – July 5, 2017
I love the Girl Scout Mission. I focus on the mission and how I can make a difference and I tend to look past the poor management and stressful environment. The staff is under appreciated and overworked.
Making a positive impact in the lives of girls. Being the difference.
