Fun and energetic workplace filled with character; never a dull day
Summer Day Camp Teacher (Former Employee), Oakland, CAAugust 14, 2014
Pros: fun, friendly staff; lively workplace
Cons: short breaks, no formal communication on a day- to- day basis
I first started to go to this day camp reluctantly after being enrolled as a student. Soon after, I fell in love with what this place has to offer and decided to go back the next year to volunteer. The next year, they offered me a paid position as a teacher, which I gladly took. Working at the Salvation Army has been an overall great experience as a – more... young adult. I was able to freely create daily lesson plans for my class, had positive and fun co-workers, and loved each and every one of my students. I was there for a good amount of time and was confident in my skills to navigate and be successful in my position. Going into work every day was the most enjoyable part, mainly because the workplace is so lively. I believe a difficult part I attended to was teaching my students while I was guiding my volunteers also. – less
