Camp Counselor (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – May 7, 2018
The work day is depends on the students one works with. Working with 4 and 5 years olds, means one is constantly chasing and entertaining students but also keeping them safe. The best part of the job was the interaction with the kids. When they are happy, you are happy as well.
ACCOUNTING MANAGER, PJCC (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – January 18, 2018
Supportive work environment. I had wonderful relationships with my colleagues. The wellness benefits are second to none. The PJCC offers: Sick and vacation time, a 403b plan, life insurance, medical and dental insurance to name a few. Many holidays and free and discounted classes. Great place to work.
Swim Instructor (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – December 26, 2017
Loved working at PJCC. Well-run programs, dedicated staff. Friendly. Supportive family environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with children and adults and the opportunity to participate in interesting lifestyle-improvement seminars and education programs
Personal Trainer (Current Employee) – Foster City, CA – November 3, 2017
A typical day at work is never set since we get a lot of people who go off on business trips. I learned that improvising is very important here at the jcc. Management can be better since we only have one and there are 20 employees. The workplace doesn't feel bad but it feels alright. The hardest part of the job is to understand that everyone is different and address people a certain way. I like working with people who has goals.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – October 10, 2017
great support and development for entry level and good culture for those in end of career. change does not happen fast, if ever. management is concerned with the bottom line, and employee morale and work/life balance is secondary. colleagues are great, benefits are great.
Youth Flag Football Instructor and Referee (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – July 10, 2017
Great place for kids to learn a sport and what sportsmanship is. Family friendly atmosphere. Show up to field and organize games and schedules and make sure teams are ready and prepared. Organize the refs and call games.
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – July 7, 2015
The best part of working for the PJCC is the staff. In my time there I always felt part of a family who genuinely liked, respected and supported each other.
It's a soft place to land for those who are tired of the corporate 'rat race' and a pretty good place to gain work experience if you're just starting your career. But because senior management and the board are a little behind the times on embracing up-to-date strategies and technology, and they don't really support staff learning or growth, it's like being 'stuck' in an endless loop, doing the same work the same way with little challenge.
Now that the PJCC is looking for a new executive director, there is the opportunity for the board to choose someone who is not 'technology challenged' and will embrace change and support staff growth and learning, which can only help the business.
Wonderful staff; generous vacation and sick time; Jewish and traditional holidays
Little room for growth or learning; senior management stuck in the past
