Best Two Years
Missionary (Former Employee), Richmond, VAApril 4, 2014
Pros: helping people
Cons: sometimes people didn't want to be helped.
Every single day while being a missionary is not the best day of my life, but the overall experience is the best thing to happen to me.

We would wake up at 6:30 and start studying to get ready for our day of going out and attempting to teach people. I was specifically given hard companions to work with because I was trusted to be able to get along – more... with them and be able to get the work done. – less

Volunteer as a missionary, rendering service to the communities surrounding Roseville California.
Volunteer Missionary (Former Employee), Roseville, CAMarch 27, 2014
Pros: great life experience.
I served as a volunteer missionary in Roseville, California and the surrounding areas. I was a ordained minister for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for my 2 years service. I was able to proselyte for the Church. As well I was able to perform community service throughout my 2 year service. Being a missionary involved 24/7 service. A – more... standard proselyting day consisted of starting the day at 6:30am and studying, planning, proselyting and doing community service. Missionaries are required to do extensive planning both daily and weekly. As a missionary we were assigned various companions over varied periods of time. We lived with, and worked with those we were paired with and we were required to be together 24/7. I learned how to effectively plan, how to work hard and how to be of service to people around me. – less

24/7, Dedicated service
Full-time Missionary (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FLMarch 4, 2014
Pros: structured environment
Cons: on call 24/7
A typical day of work consisted of arising at 6:30 am, preparing for the day, proselyting and serving from 10 am to 9 pm. Taking an hour for both lunch and dinner. Updating records daily from 9:30 pm to 10:30 pm. Then retiring to bed at 10:30 pm. Management and Co worker were for the most part friendly. The hardest part of the job was finding people – more... interested in our proselyting. The most enjoyable part was being able to help people. – less

Great opportunity to learn and serve Peruvian people
Volunteer Missionary (Former Employee), Lima, PeruFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: learned a second language, great food, great learning experience
Cons: the only communication i had with my family was weekly emails
I volunteered as a full-time missionary in Peru when I was 19 years old. I didn't know any Spanish before I started, but I became fluent after about 6 months in Peru. Working in pairs with native Spanish-speakers, we visited with people everyday from 10 AM to 9 PM. Our job was to teach them about the church and prepare them for baptism if they wanted – more... to join the church. There was a lot of earthquake damage in Peru, so we often did service projects to help people rebuild their houses as well as other service projects.

I loved being a missionary although it was difficult. When a missionary is in the field, there is no compensation or supervision, so personal discipline and incentive are necessary. It was difficult to sacrifice two years of my life to serve other people, but it was also very rewarding. Also, it was initially very difficult working in pairs with native Spanish-speakers because we couldn't understand each other. It became a very rewarding process as I learned the language. I love Peru, especially the food. – less

none
Cleaner (Current Employee), BlantyreFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: no free lunch!, i have learnt not to give myself a break for lunch when i am working
Cons: no short breaks
My typical day at work begins with a personal prayer, followed by warming up and getting dressed for the work to begin.
while i have my earphones on listening to the radio especially BBC in order to listen to the world affairs of the day. The work begins.
I have learned that when i am at work i have to put aside all my personal pursuits or challenges – more... and put all my concentration on the work, then i produce satisfactory results.
the hardest part of the job is when i see food in the fridge of missionaries yet my house has no food and i cant do anything about it. the other hard part is to work under close supervision of my bosses, makes me feel like they are judging my performance right away.
the most fun part is when i work alone in the house in the absence of my boss where i can move around freely and sometimes relax on the couch as if i own the house! – less

Dish washer (Former Employee), Defuniak Springs, FLJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: teaches you leadership, organization skills, schedule, and to deal with difficult people
Cons: only 2 years
Every day started out waking up at 6 in the morning. Start with a prayer and then go for a run. Your day was very much structured and schedule based. You go out dressed in a formal suit and knock on doors. Those who answer you open your mouth and talk. No matter what you always talked with those around you.

Rewarding by helping those in need to advance to a better life.
Coordinator / Counselor / Volunteer (Current Employee), Omaha, NENovember 25, 2013
Pros: i always have opportunities to serve and grow.
Cons: the only downside is sometimes serving those who are ungrateful. however, serving people no matter what their attitude is has proven to be a growing experience since 1986.
This volunteering has been an adult endeavor to improve the quality of lives of others. The ability to serve without compensation has brought much joy to my life. I have learned to accept responsibilities that I have not always felt prepared for and then learned to grow into a great leader. Those whom I serve with have been extremely philanthropical – more... as well. The hardest part of the job is finding balance. There are always those in need. I love to get outside of myself and do things for others. – less
