Be aware that most of the reviews posted are Not for professional paid jobs at a Council office. They are mostly from volunteer adults saying they like working with scout children or scouts themselves saying they received their Eagle rank and got a lot from the scouting program, and persons working over a summer at a summer camp. If you take these reviews out, you will find that in all areas of the country the reviewers say the same thing: bad management, very long and unpaid hours of nights and weekends (since you are on salary they don't have to pay you), unrealistic metrics, being set up for failure and really the main job is finding and collecting money from the very volunteers that run the program.
