Human Resource Manager (Former Employee) – Cookeville, TN – January 12, 2018
This job was extremely fun and engaging, I was able to meet many people and also mentor the young incoming freshman. I helped get them acclimated to college life and the environment they would be living in, including getting them registered for classes.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Campbell, KY – December 12, 2017
The best way to describe the job is, you wake up in the morning and you hurry to work. Someone has your career in their hands no matter your tenure, and they are sure to remind you of that on a daily basis. You work your hardest and usually that isn't good enough. You finally make enough rank and into a position to change things for the positive and then you get treated like an outcast for trying to help create a positive work environment. I guess people like coming to work and getting beat down on a regular basis.
cool toys, amazing missions
no one is truly cool with change unless it was there idea
Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – November 14, 2017
I volunteer at the school because I'm an alumni after school and I believe that it is a very good place to volunteer and work. The people in the children is what making important and for you why did you be around it because it is such a good family environment.
SOAR was the hardest place I have ever worked due to the extensive hours and the population we supported. Working for 10 days straight 24 hours a day makes it tough to have a life outside of work making it hard to balance friends and hobbies. With that said, the time and energy put into the kids really shows after a while and you can see how the program allows them to mature and find themselves.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Webb City, MO – September 9, 2017
Make sure kids are safe when they jump and don't get injured. 15 min breaks every 6 hours. Able to meet lots of new friends. Lots of rules for the employees to follow. Sometimes employees will get yelled at for nonsense actions. Somewhat nice management. No pay raises. No benefits. Flexible scheduling. Yet if you request off a bit, chances are your hours will drop quickly. Only looking for people that are available every day of the week, all day. Sometimes at the end of shifts, staff is able to jump for free on the trampolines. Every Wednesday and Thursday, employees are allowed to come into Soar to jump for free. Bosses are very chill and laid back. Its the coworkers that give everyone else a hard time.
Jump for free
Short breaks. No benefits. Strict Rules. Sent home early if business is low.

Student Outreach and Retention (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – July 11, 2017
The SOAR Center located on the UC Irvine campus provided many work experience opportunities. It requires student helpers to have certain attributes, yet not having certain attributes did not mean a student is unqualified. In fact the center looks at student helpers holistically.

Outdoor Trip Leader (Former Employee) – North Carolina – April 2, 2016
This was an internship requirement for my field, and I really enjoyed it. Everyday at work was an adventure including high ropes courses, and hiking. I learned that building rapport is essential skill to have in any job setting and time management. My co workers were very different from me, and I learned to work really well with people of different skill sets than my own. The hardest part of the job was coming up with new plans on the spot when an event was already prepared beforehand. The most enjoyable part of the job was whitewater rafting.
Hands on experience including Rock climbing and White water rafting
community focused and rewarding position with a lot of fun activities
Assistant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 30, 2015
This was an amazing job. I got to work with my brother, help out kids with special needs, play games, and help teach in the classroom. A typical day at work consisted of joining a group's schedule and helping supervise in P.E., math, english, bible study, media, and art. Another duty I had was to clean and organize the huge and very stuffed storage room, fetch supplies, clean and organize the classrooms after the day was over, and help teachers set up. The hardest part of the job was learning how to work affectively and efficiently with kids with special needs. I have a couple of cousins with special needs, so I had an idea of what to expect but it was still very overwhelming at first. They got upset very easily, had trouble focusing, and were challenging to teach. However, the best part of the job was also the hardest. These kids were the happiest, most enthusiastic people I have ever spent time around. I left every day a little sad, but feeling joyful and excited for the next day. I definitely learned a lot about taking care of others and tutoring, as well as learning how to communicate with people who had combination barriers.
paid internship, rewarding, fun environment, community building
