Caring community center that makes you feel at home
Membership Associate/Building reservations (Current Employee), Whitefish Bay, WI – March 7, 2014
Pros: free gym membership
Cons: low pay for the amount of responsibilities
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

Full time teacher (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – October 29, 2013
Pros: the wonderful co-workers i met
Cons: having to leave and find a new job.
A typical day would include welcoming the children. However if it was a Friday the children would celebrate a Jewish custom called Shabbot. In this tradition you have some bread called Hallah, and some grape juice. The children would listen to a story read and then we would sing the song to bless the Hallah and grape juice. There were some other Jewish – more... holidays that were celebrated during this time I was at this center that I learned about. I have forgotten them unfortunately. I had a good time learning them though. – less

During my work day I helped the children to optimize their play time and stay on task. I helped with transitions from one activity to another. At times I had to change diapers and do simple room clean ups. I learned how to manage a classroom and find creative themes and activities for the children.
