LPS Kid's Zone has been home to me for a collective year & a half. Since then, I've moved up from a program counselor to being second in charge as an Assistant Site Director for my site. Absolutely love the working environment, & the kid's & staff I interact with. Only down fall is, there are no benefits & hours are usually under 30 hours. A typical day at work includes getting there & clocking in, getting every station set up for having the kids there, getting the computer's up & running, & waiting for the kids to show up. I've learned how to be extremely patient with the kids I interact with, as some of them may not catch what I mean the first, second or third time I've explained something. Management is very easy to talk to, I can come to anyone with any problem or question & it gets answered without any question as to why I asked, or why I didn't know it before. The hardest part of the job is typically waking up at 5:30am Monday-Friday in order to get there at 6:30am. Not really that hard once I get up & moving, but actually getting myself out of bed seems to be a challenge! The best part of my job is working with the kids.
Easy going environment, advancement
no benefits, less than 30 hours
