Terrible place to work for adults
Naperville Park District Staff (Former Employee) –  Naperville, ILDecember 21, 2018
If you are a kid, this is a great place to work because your whole life is ahead of you and you will shortly finish school and go somewhere else.

If you are an adult, this is a terrible place to work. Find someplace else. Middle management has no idea what they are doing. The pay is very low for the tasks, knowledge, and experience you are expected to provide. Your more experienced co-workers will ride you constantly, even after you have a few years under your belt. The managers let the more experienced co-workers get away with murder, but heaven help you if you make a tiny error.

Lets say that you start off at $9 an hour. They give 25 cent raises after a year. But new folks they hire? They'll pay $10 an hour. It'll take you four years before you start making what the new person is making, even though you've had a few years of experience and they have zero experience.

Want more time to work? Good luck, maybe you'll get 15-20 hours but they aren't giving full time to anyone except high end managers. Don't buy their promises of promotion, it will never happen.

Management is proud that they have not paid any unemployment compensation claim - because they make people they don't like so miserable that they quit. In fact, they work with a company that teaches them how to do this. In one department not one of their new hires lasted more than 2 years.

The work environment is toxic. Your co-workers will lie about you to get you in trouble and to get rid of you.

The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the visitors and guests.

The most difficult part
  more... of the job is dealing with your sullen and angry co-workers.

You've been warned. Don't work here.

Fun summer job
Park Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Naperville, ILFebruary 26, 2019
The people working here are great, and it was a fun job to work with structured hours every week. The management gave tasks out fairly and the pay is worth it for a younger person working part time. The job was not very challenging and I would go back there in the summers if I could.

a good "first job" company
Archery Instructor (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL 60540January 29, 2019
Naperville Park District is a good company for hiring teens and others for their first job. the jobs are good for teaching those to the workforce about the attitude needed and work schedules etc. People get to work and help out in the community as well.
