Employee (Current Employee) – United States – August 24, 2017
I enjoy working with Junior Achievement and enjoy the people here. My only qualm is with compensation, which is usual within non-profits. Many employees go to the private sector, especially since we rely so heavily on the private sector donations and work closely with them. It is very hard to sit at a board meeting with people of similar age, less skills, half of the work week in hours worked, and three times the salary. We must find a balance or we will continue to be a mill for qualified, capable, and reliable individuals.
Fun, raise money for kids, established organization
work-life balance, compensation, can be cut-throat

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – July 5, 2017
A typical day at work for me was to answer incoming phone calls and messages and organize events and personal tasks for my supervisor. I learned how to be a great assistant and how to handle the pressure of making sure the tasks were all done properly and up to standards. The management was outstanding it ran very smoothly and their organization was key in the business. The workplace culture was fun and upbeat. I looked forward to going to work every day. The hardest part of the job was planning and making each work event run smoothly and the best to represent the company well. The most enjoyable part of the job were the management and the atmosphere.
able to learn new things and create stuff with your team. requires dedication towards the job, the teams are also very friendly and helpful. depending on how you run it you'll be able to get work done quick and efficient.

o Volunteer (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – August 27, 2015
Its an amazing program. The staff and manager were so nice and kind. They love what they do and enjoy working with high school students. They teach you and train you to be a teacher. They also teach about how to be mature about your work and not let anything come across your way to make you change your attitude an a negative way. I get to become a leader as a teacher. I read books to the kids and help each of them individually on their assignments. I help walked them to their destination-to the cafeteria and the auditorium. it was a wonderful experience, would love to do it again.

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Abington Elementary School – August 21, 2014
Getting welcomed by children who are eager to learn and are friendly to new people they meet. I learned how to communicate to the children and adapt to their preferences. Management was professional and helpful. The hardest part was the lack of obedience in the classroom at times. The most enjoyable part is working with the children and teaching them valuable lessons.
