As a assistant center director you will scrub toilets, report leaked, and change garbage bags in addition to supervise afterschool activity and staff, manage rate of participation, and meal counts. What I hated about this job was micro-management, this stifles creativity and has the staff walking on egg shells constantly. The staff has great ideas but the culture does not allow it, the do as I say management style is limiting and ideas are not shared or welcomed. Rate of participation amongst afterschool participants is lacking because of the structure of afterschool programming which is in need of a STEM specialists and meaningful trips. I hated that emails were sent out from management past 10pm and as early as 6am.
This is not the Police Athletic League of the past that promoted from within and nurtured and encouraged leaders to their full potential.
Third party training was encouraged
The pay was below median for program directors
