Great place to assist those in need
Caseworker II (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNSeptember 16, 2014
Cons: staff turnover
I'm always preparing myself for the busy day when I come in to the office every morning. The phones are always ringing with clients asking for emergency assistance with food, rent, utilities, etc. It's fulfilling to be able to assist families, whether it is one time or several times throughout the year. The toughest part of my job is the labor that – more... is needed to coordinate and manage the food pantry. – less

Productive, fun, and rewarding work atmosphere
Day Camp Assistant Program Director (Former Employee), Eatonville, WASeptember 15, 2014
Pros: free lodging, great coworkers, fellowship
Cons: limited sleeping hours, conflict resolution at time
Working at camp, you are surrounded in your own community of like minded people who are dedicated and determined. You learn a lot about yourself as well as how to be a part of a great community that serves a higher purpose. Coworkers become your best friends and your closest confidants. The hardest part of the job was how tiring the job can get but – more... the most enjoyable part was seeing the fruits of your labor at the end of the day. We sowed tiny seeds that could last a lifetime for some of the children we worked with. – less
