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 – more... 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. – less

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 – more... 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. – less

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 – more... 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. – less

Worked with a fine staff who were very uplifting personalities. Wrote hand-written thank yous for supporters to the Ronald McDonald House.

In a typical day I would facilitated activities with ill children, maintained cleanliness of house, assisted parents in transporting child to hospital, answered phones, gave tours and greeted visitors of the house.

Volunteer in the playroom
Playroom Supervisor (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJune 19, 2013
Pros: seeing the smiles on the children's faces
Cons: it can be sad at times
I volunteer every other Saturday night from 6 to 9 in the playroom of the Ronald McDonald House. I play with the children, do arts and crafts with them, play board games, or help them put on a show and dress up. I have learned to not take things for granite because these kids go through some really tough things. I absolutely love being with the children – more... and watching them enjoy themselves. It can be very sad and overwhelming but it is important to not let the children see that and to bring an upbeat positive energy to them. – less
