Amazing un-paid service given
Missionary (Former Employee), Twin Falls, IDAugust 21, 2015
Pros: Many kind people
Cons: Constantly tired and some hard people to work with
I spent two years serving for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as a missionary. Everyday, i followed strict guidelines and went about the place where i was assigned, talking to as many people as i could and teaching them what i know.

I learned a lot about how to communicate with people and relate to them. I also learned how to understand where people are coming from.

Those that i worked with were hard at times and others that i worked with were absolutely amazing and taught me a lot.

I loved all the people that i met while serving and how much i learned.

Awesome thing to do serve God and others
Missionary (Former Employee), Carlsbad, CAAugust 17, 2015
Pros: Infinite amount of learning experiences, meet new people
It isn't a company, but I worked hard. It was as much as you put into it everyday. We studied in the morning for 3 hours, personally, with our mission companions and we would go out and find people to teach about our religion and help them get baptized.

9 hours of teaching/ finding or doing some sort of service including baptismal services and speeches.

Hardest part was learning to deal with rejection and my own weakenesses, but in those times I learned that with Christs help anything is possible, and that I could grow and become better and in the process help out others.

Full Time Missionary (Former Employee), Manchester, NHAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Learn many daily life skills, Independence
Cons: Short free time, Never know when being rotated
An LDS mission is daily work from 6:30 in the morning till 10:30 at night everything I did was focused on the work. So hard work with patience, perseverance, and a happy face went a long way in making a great experience.
Small groups were my primary focus in my leadership position of being over 6-12 other missionaries. This included teaching, correction, advising, and reporting. I worked with one other missionary that was with at all times until our companionship was rotated.
I found the hardest part of the job was working so personable with my companion and those we taught, but at the same time it became the most enjoyable aspect of the 18 month duration.

Volunteer Companion (Former Employee), Oakland, CAJuly 31, 2015
Pros: Having a great suport system behind me.
Cons: Not having more free time to give.
Going to a disable church members house and help them with what every they needed me to do for them that day. I learned that no matter what it could be a lot worse so count my blessings. I had a great support team and all the help I could ever need. the hardest part of the job was not having more time on m hands to give back more. Meeting a great lady and having her as a friend for the rest of my life.

Missionary (Former Employee), Chicago, IllinoisJuly 25, 2015
Pros: Friendships
Cons: Moving from a work area to another
Everyday preparation to learn how to teach talk and serve. our organisation was simple we always had someone to report to and everyone was willing to learn and grow. One of the hardest job in the field was to delete records and the best was to send new member records to the headquarters.

Missionary (Former Employee), Provo, UTJuly 19, 2015
Pros: Free Lunch, housing, fun teams to work with, and was not paid
Cons: short breaks
A typical day would be to wake up at 6:30am do a personal study of the scriptures. Then at 8am we could jump on the chat rooms and talk with people about their questions they had in the church. And if it went anywhere, we would schedule a time to skype them and teach them even more.

Meaningful service and teaching opportunities, providing spiritual, mental, and emotional growth
Full-Time Missionary (Former Employee), Eugene, ORJune 12, 2015
Pros: Different people every day, varied schedules activities, self planned, emotionally satisfying
Cons: No cons
During my time as a volunteer missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I learned many skills. These skills include, but are not limited to, scheduling, planning, organizing, teaching, leadership, team-building, and training. Though I was not paid, I definitely did a LOT of hard work. Each day of work (7 days a week) began at 6:30am with a rigorous schedule of exercise, planning, practice teaching, and studying for 3.5 hours. The rest of the day until 10:30pm was filled with teaching, door-to-door contacting, service (raking leaves, moving furniture, cleaning, etc.), training meetings, and other meaningful activities and appointments. The hardest part of this experience was that it was physically taxing. It was amazing and made me so happy, but it made me so tired every day. The most enjoyable thing was getting to talk to all sorts of people, help them with whatever they needed, and provide them messages of hope and comfort during difficult times.

Director (Current Employee), Salt Lake CityJune 11, 2015
Pros: Great people, cutting edge of technology, great benefits
Cons: Stifling conservative dress code
If you are a member of the Church, then you'll love working here. The only drawback is the conservative dress code. Other than that, it's terrific.

Volunteer Representative (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALJune 11, 2015
I was a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We didn't get paid for our service, but we dedicated our time to serving those around us, and teaching them principles from our church that could make their lives better. This opportunity allowed me to learn how to be selfless, and to make service a huge part of my life.

Best 2 years
Full-time Service Missionary (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVJune 11, 2015
The hardest most rewarding 2 years of work of your life. You get to do amazing things and get to teach and help amazing people. There are good days and bad days but the good days far outshine and are worth the bad days.
