After School Care - Great for College Students
After School Counselor (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – January 23, 2018
I worked both over the summer and during the school year. During the school year you get maybe 15-20 hours a week but during the summer you get more because it becomes an all day program. Your experience really depends on which school you work at (Mount Daniel, Thomas Jefferson, or Mary Ellen Henderson). I enjoyed working with the kids but did not enjoy management. Each school has a supervisor on site (or at least they are supposed to be) but there are also two other main supervisors. Males seemed to get better treatment than females. There were strict rules on cell phone use and planning activities but the males were not held to this standard; but it seemed to become lax for everyone by the time I left. At that time there was no structure and employees were goofing off almost all of the time.
I do think this is a good job for a young undergraduate student who only wants to work a few hours a week and still have fun. The lack of growth, unstructured environment and the low pay just does not make sense for anyone else.
