Elementary Director (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – December 13, 2017
Working for Madison School and Community Recreation has been a whirlwind. Hiring and management wise, I have no complaints. Open communication and inclusive practices are focal points in both student and staff relations, and staff-staff relations.
Assistant Director Meadowood Neighborhood Center (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – April 7, 2016
I really enjoy the ability to work with youth and being able to provide some exposure to the community. I have to wear several different hats which can be a strain at times because of the infrastructure in place. I really enjoy my superiors and my co-workers. the hardest part of my job, is the fact I have to hold TWO full-time positions for the price of on, but I am a team player do what needs to be done because the mission is to provide for the community and families we serve.
Being able to expose diverse families to opportunities
Counselor/Tutor (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – December 30, 2015
MSCR gives employees the opportunity and freedom to develop personalized daily agendas for elementary school students. The job develops organizational skills as employees are in charge of a classroom of students for five hours a day. Employees are asked to develop agendas that students will enjoy and learn from. Employees act as teachers, supervisors, and friends as they work with students to grow in every facet of elementary education.
Employees also learn how to work as a team as they coordinate schedules with supervisors of students from many different age groups. The team would meet at the end of every day to discuss what methods of teaching work best and how to fix any problems that arise. Communication skills are strengthened daily as employees meet with the parents of students to talk about their child's growth in the program.
Great people to work with, but harder to get a full-time position
Program Leader (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – December 23, 2015
As a part timer that started as a junior leader, I found it hard to see this company as a viable option to pay most of my bills. Getting part-time and sporadic work was easy enough, but finding a position full-time was not.
Junior Leader (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – May 1, 2014
A typical day at MSCR would consist of, coming in to a bunch of adorable kids smiling at me! Excited to see me. :) Id spend most of the day planning activites, playing games, teaching writing and reading, going on field trips and then some. MSCR was a very busy job, and i loved every second of it!!!
Soccer Coach/ Referee (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – October 21, 2013
I coach outdoor/indoor soccer to U3-U13 for this respectable company teaching the kids the basics of the fundamentals of the sport and advanced levels as well. I'm also a referee officiating MSCR organized league games from U3-U10 weekly. I've learned to be patient with the kids and also teach them tactics and techniques as a referee. Management is well put together and co workers are respectable and highly tolerable. The Hardest part sometimes is dealing with the overzealous parents that watch their children play. I enjoy coaching and officiating the kids because it brings so much joy and discipline to their being.
