Very concerning what goes on at Girl Scouts with number of hours required to work. Note the consistency in responses here. Working over 40 hours consistently, work expectations are unrealistic because there are not enough staff hired to do the work adequately. It is sadly the reason Girl Scouts is providing poor service to GIRLS and volunteers. SAD!
What would you suggest Girl Scouts of the USA management do to prevent others from leaving?
Girl Scouts as an organization wouldn't exist if it wasn't for committed troop leaders but even those are fleeing this company. This company devalues women and their work in my personal experience. Pay is inadequate and work expectations are unrealistic. They are running this organization as a sales program. Somehow GS lost its way because they stopped prioritizing community services to GIRLS and started focusing mostly on recruitment of new girls. Of course numbers tell the story when girls join for a year and LEAVE!
Fake---culture is not what it should be---focused on the bottom dollar not service to girls.
Very concerning...some of the things I witnessed. Organizational structure is upside down. Too many management people and underpaid, undervalued, and overworked field staff.
Horses come in the spring and leave in the fall, so about 6 months of equine care at this camp. about 2 weeks of training, and 8 weeks of overnight campers. (during the rest of the time the horses are used for encampment, birthdays, etc.)
