Volunteer (Former Employee), Darby, PA – July 11, 2013
Pros: free lunches, nice trips
A typical day at volunteering with my girl scouts was we really worked hard to make sure that we served the elderly well when we were caring for them. When we sold cookies , we were committed , it was a fierce competition, because different troops were also selling cookies , plus we were competing against each other. I learned how to do business , and how to work with others. My fellow volunteers were great. The hardiest part I would have to say is leaving the girl scouts. The most enjoyable part was getting together on different activities.

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.

Member (Former Employee), anaheim, Ca – February 27, 2013
Pros: meeting new people and making friends
Cons: the cliques
I learned different objectives from joining in the 1st grade until now. We would hold meetings every week on a certain day and talk about up coming events and create different activities from the younger girls. Being in girl scouts gives a large leadership role because you're asked to do so many things that involve being on your own and in charge of a group of girls including yourself. The hardest part would be maintaining a pace. Once you start going, it's hard to stop at the end of the day. The most enjoyable part is seeing people with large smiles on their faces because you get the satisfaction you put that there.

Office Administrator (Former Employee), Merrillville, IN – October 29, 2012
Pros: participating in major company meetings proved to be very valuable.
Cons: with all that is involved with girl scouting procedures, at times, it seemed as though we wouldn't accomplish all that was needed; but, we always accomplish everything.
A typical day required opening the office and insuring my staff was in place. I learned how to interact with all level of children and their parents. For the most part, working as a Supervisor and working with management was very satisfying. I worked well with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was satisfying the needs of the Girl Scout Leaders. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning all the different types of activities that were involved in girl scouting.
