Exciting place to work
Assistant Superintendent of Recreationr (Former Employee) –  River Forest, ILApril 6, 2017
The Forest Preserve Department was a very exciting place to work especially if you enjoyed outdoor activities. You dealt with Forest preserve groves, golf course, pools, multiple facilities, etc.

Don't trying becoming a low paid laborer!
Laborer (Current Employee) –  Forest ParkJune 5, 2014
Great to work outdoors but poor management skills and little concern for the little man. As a laborer you do all the dirty work which reflects to the public. Little to no recognition!
Pros
benefits and time off
Cons
have been fighting for a raise for a few years.

Great volunteer network!

A fun way to spend time and help nature. Light-duty jobs available and labor intensive jobs - something for everyone! Wonderful people with massive amounts of knowledge. It's like a family or close community - everyone cares about each other.
Pros
You choose schedule - volunteer, great people

Very interesting place of business
