High energy, fun job; Poor hours
Lead Instructor (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 29, 2018
This is a great job for someone looking for part time hours. You get to teach fun projects to kids and often spend the majority of the 90 minute classes/3 hour summer camp sessions playing and building with kids.
There's always an opportunity to advance, but most positions will require relocating to another site unless you choose to remain as an instructor.
Pay is plenty fair at nearly $20, including payment for travel time.
The hours are tough, though. Most classes are after school, so you'll work around 2-5, which makes it tough to find another part time job before or after. Days are flexible, though. Summers have the possibility of full time, but it's not unheard of a camp cancelling due to low enrollment and then you're out of a job for the week. Most good managers will try to find something for you to do, at least!
You'll likely never see your coworkers, except for the occasional large event or training sessions.
