Division Leader
Division Leader (Current Employee), Huguenot, NYSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: short breaks, different personalities
Working as a Division Leader your day starts at about 6 am and ends around 11 pm. During that time you would be face with different situations that have to be handle. I learned different styles of solving problems. The management team allowed the leadership team to figure out what work and what didn't work. My co workers where a great asset to learn – more... from. The hardest part of the job was trying to put aside the issues that were top level priority from low priority because when you are working with the same kids all summer they become similar to your own kids. The most enjoyable and memorable moment was at the end when you could notice the significant change in the kids. – less

Great community outreach
School-Age Site Counselor and Site Director (Former Employee), Atlanta, GASeptember 16, 2014
Pros: rewarding job
Cons: not enough pay
I loved what I did but there was very little support from supervisors due to the overload or responsibilities they have. Pay was not that great also. High staff turn over which sucks for the children and directors trying to run a program. However working with the children and seeing their smile every day when you show up is very rewarding.

Unique and heart warming environment
Play Station Staff (Current Employee), Fargo, NDSeptember 15, 2014
Children ages 6 weeks to 9 years old come into the Playstation while their parent goes to work out. We have regulars, newbies and a few randoms. It is so fun to see the children grow over time. To watch them interact with the staff and other children. The day presents it's challenges as children are close to nap time or not getting along with each other. – more... But in the end the "Good Bye Teacher!" and the smile on the childs face as they leave always leaves your heart warm and fuzzy. – less
