Camp Aide in Sterling, VA
on July 16, 2018
It was great getting to know the girls and I worked with units and centers at the camp. I volunteered for a few different years and had alot of fun. We had groups of 15 or so girls who we would escort through the centers and entertain in between. The hardest part of this was the heat.

Lots of creative control. The opportunity to mentor and work with the girl is priceless. Not the best pay but it’s very rare to find a job you look forward to going to. I loved cookie season.
Membership Engagement Coordinator in Peoria, IL

Position Description and Expectations-When I was hired at GSCI, I was told that the MEC would work 2-3 evenings per week and one weekend per month. In this role, it became the expectations to host 3-4+ recruitment event per week along with a minimum of two weekends. -I was also told during the hiring process that this position has a high turnover rate due to it being an introductory level position. From my experience; however, I feel that turnover is primarily related to employee burnout and being overworked. This position was advertised as overtime exempt, working approximately 36 hours per week. In my role, I routinely worked over 40 hours per week .It also says a LOT about a company when the employee turnover rate is over 60%. The corporate culture is extremely toxic. Communication between departments does not exist and the rumor mill is constantly running. -One of the biggest complaints I heard from customers and members is lack of support from council. I personally know, due to conversations during renewal calls, that Scout parents and leaders are choosing not to return and renew memberships with Girls Scouts due to the lack of support from Membership and council. -It was my impression upon hiring that this position is a recruitment job, but overall our goal is to serve our members. The pressure to have numbers met and go out and register new girls, leaders, and start new troops heavily outweighs the emphasis of supporting existing members. -From previous experience with recruiting, I know that when existing members feel supported, retention and recruitment rates are much higher. Leaders who feel supported share positive experiences, openly communicate, and actively participate within the community and with council. Non-members notice this – it generates interest and more girls see what Girl Scouts do and want to join. Reporting-Reporting is disorganized and there are many documents for coinciding information. It is very difficult to keep track of where documents and information is located and the appropriate place to save them. Many of these reports feel repetitive and unseen from supervisors. After completing and submitting these reports, every detail is reiterated in check ins and conversations. - After submitting multiple reports and presenting documented information, employees are constantly analyzed. In this role, I often needed to justify every decision I made. As a professional with many years experience and a higher education degree; I had hoped that a level of trust, at least based on my qualifications, if not my performance, at this job. Planning and Communication-The Membership team has very few laid out processes. This position seems as if it should be self-sustainable and seasonally repetitive with project-like tasks. With each season there should be a core set of practices and processes in place. Instead, new information is constantly being pushed out; practices and deadlines change almost daily. The information being pushed out often feels rushed and unplanned. This causes confusion, anxiety and stress within Membership staff. -There were NO best practices, namely because those practices change so frequently. It is very frustrating completing job requirements when information is continuously changing and team members communicate they have been told conflicting information.

Work life balance is nearly non-existent a typical day at work could be very smooth and uplifting helping volunteers and parents or bogged down in so much work.management is concerned about the bottom line and changed since the previous CEO left workplace culture is divisive and not inclusive.the hardest part of the job, loving what Girl Scouts stands for but having difficulty looking past shadiness in top management.the most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the growth in girls and volunteers.
