Playful Play
Program Coordinator (Current Employee), Houston, TXApril 2, 2014
Pros: enjoying the play with children
Cons: early mornings, and outside during hot conditions
A typical work day will begin with before school recess at 7:00 and ends at 7:45, then I have a few classes come outside to play in 30 minute increments. Next I will have recess from 11:00 am til 1:15 pm in 25 minute increments per class. Finally my day will end with one more class game time at 2:00pm til 2:30. The hardest part of my job is being prepared – more... for the weather because I am outdoors a lot there are days when the rain can cause the playground to be shut down or cancel certain games that need large spaces. I am the only employee from my company that works at the elementary school that I am located but we are all outstanding individuals. I would have to say that the most enjoyable part of the job and playing with kids and seeing them have endless fun. – less

Productive and fun enviornment
Program Coordinator (Current Employee), Durham, NCDecember 6, 2013
My current job is a fast paced, fun and interactive position with staff and students. Freedom to create and organize weekyl and monthly lesson plans and calendars. Occasional visits and evaluation from management. Monthly and weekly staff trainings and professional developement trainings. The hardest part would be that this position is an outdoor job – more... which means that it is generally wether permitting and I have to be very flexible and change my plans to move indoors if necessary. I enjoy the enviorment and the staff that I work with. – less

Pros: very playful environment, great job training, leadership management style, goal oriented feedback
Cons: very tiring job, does not pay very well for all the work that is done
Playworks is a great organization to work for if you want a job that will keep you moving. You get a chance to change lives through the power of game play. It is awesome and tiring at the same time this job takes a lot of energy.
