Counselor (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – October 2, 2018
A typical day at work would be coming in going to the gym playing basketball till it was time for the little learning classes break into groups. I help with the campers help do what ever is asked of them. Help bringing out the lunch help them clean up do more learning and then to the gym to play till it was time to go. I learned to be more open minded and to be more patient. Management was good. The work place culture was good i went to the after school so i was well aware of who was working there and very comfortable with them. The hardest part of the job was having patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things.

Group Leader (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – August 22, 2018
Working here, I witnessed a lot of unprofessionalism, management was rude and so inconsiderate. Director always told the employees to not come to work with our feelings showing, but she would always come to work in her feelings and would take her anger out on her employees or don't want to be bothered at all. But working here, I have grown with children as a person, and gained a lot of experience being with children of different ages and grades; the children are very lovable though.
