Excellent program providing vital humanitarian relief to families
Director of Development/ Phila (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAMay 7, 2015
Pros: Inspiring to see how families fight for their children and support one another
Cons: Emotionally difficult to witness the trials families must endure
One need only visit the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, (the house that love built) to see that it does radiate that love. Families spend brief to long periods of time in clean and attractive sleeping areas while their children receive medical care at the local children's hospital. While at the PRMH, families also receive support from staff as well as excellent home-cooked meals mostly provided by civic, religious and educational groups who bring the food and use the in house kitchen to cook a nurturing meal. Families eat together which gives them a place to share support from other families staying at the house. Its truly inspiring to see the healing support that is shared and given.

Positive setting. Tend to patients of St. Jude and their families.
Shift Volunteer (Current Employee), Memphis, TNMarch 31, 2015
Pros: Doing what I can to help the families. Creating less stress for the families.
Cons: It can be very stressful and hectic, Hearing about patients that have passed away is extremely difficult.
I monitor the front desk and help the children and their families in anyway that I'm capable. I've learned patience, understanding, and ambition. It's a very friendly place to be. I get the most out of being able to help people and put joy in peoples lives when there may not be much at the time. Creating a friendship with the families can be bittersweet at times.

This job help me to see how management skills can help your overall self confidence as a person and abilities to perform in any profession.
Guess Service Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INSeptember 26, 2014
This job has helped me to manage my time and confront situations at hand on a need too basis. I have also learned to think things through before making a concrete decision. Some situations have called for having to read materials before contacting someone for help. Communication is key when you are the only one on the job site. A good re-pore with your co-workers helps make your job easier. The hardest part of the job was having to figure things out that you weren't familiar with before you asked for help. The most enjoyable part of the job helping and comforting someone in a time of need.

Warm inviting work environment
Assistant Manager of Guest Services (Former Employee), Dallas, TXAugust 11, 2014
Pros: getting to provide families piece of mind and safe environment
Cons: havig to inforce policy in lite of their given situations.
Your day was always different nothing typical. As a front office manager your day included updates on families that were staying in the RM House for local treatment of a child. Whether it was day surgery or long term stays or care flights to our local hospitals.
Making assessments on our current availability and future stays.
I learned that no matter what our day to day worries are their are people out there that are dealing with the suffering of a child and my issues are just not that important and the job that I an doing will allow me to help so many. I learned a lot from my co-workers they worked together at all time to insure these families didn't have t worry about a place to lay their heads when they were to tired to go on. The hardest part of my job was helping a family that had loss a child prepare to go home without them. Gathering there belongings and seeing them off. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing how happy and relaxed the families were in the house after planned activities with incoming scheduled groups. No matter what their condition the kids they just wanted to be normal and have fun. Seeing those parents smiles helped make the job a place to call home away from home.

Fun.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLJuly 6, 2014
Pros: helping people, getting experience
Cons: seeing families leave without their children.
While working at Ronald McDonald house I loved everything about it. All of the team members and guests were nothing but nice while working there. Answering phone calls, and being able to see families leave to go home with their now healthy children was the main thing I loved about my job. Among being with the team members my co-workers were people I looked forward to seeing when I'd walk in. There were plenty of days I went in stressed and I was able to enjoy my job. Even on days when families lost one of their loved ones while staying there, as members we helped them through their tough time and made sure they were able to get anything and everything they needed. Ronald McDonald house made me grow up and see things I never thought I would, which is why I recommend anyone who's ever looking to help one another to go volunteer there, they're never going to turn someone away if they're willing to help.
