The Jewish Community Center is a nice place to work
bus driver (Current Employee), Akron, OHJuly 6, 2014
Pros: respectable place
Cons: no benefits
I really like the people I work with at the Jewish Community Center. I am only a part time employee here so I do not receive benefits. But they have really treated me well. The place has undergone a change in management this past 6 months and they might be outsourcing my job.

Caring community center that makes you feel at home
Membership Associate/Building reservations (Current Employee), Whitefish Bay, WIMarch 7, 2014
Pros: free gym membership

My days are spent talking with and helping members get the best out of their JCC membership. The JCC is a fitness and community center that serves the Jewis population of Milwaukee, as well as people of all religions in the North Shore region of Milwaukee County. I also manage our program registration database, as well as, reserving rooms for in-house – more... meetings and events. Every day I learn that every person and family's experiences are very different, and that problems must be dealt with from an objective perspective. The hardest part of my job is that sometimes my database responsibilities take me away from being able to deal with our members face to face. The best part of my job is to the see the progress that a member can make in their overall wellness during the coarse of their membership with the JCC. – less
