A typical day at work for me would be coming in, smiling at the members who pass me by, waving "hello" to front desk employees and clocking in. Once I have arrived in the room, I immediately have to adjust to who is already in there, their age(s) and the employees who might already be in there. During my work shift I'm always adjusting to new sign-ups, children who have been in for however long, and how to manage the room so everyone stays happy in safe. I'm always on my feet making sure the children are happy and safe, and staying on my toes to prepare for any new sign-ups or tours. From this job I learned to be punctual, on time, professional and developed more leadership. I have also learned how to cooperate with another colleague who may not have the same tactics as I do, and still do my very best. The management isn't the best, but it's also not terrible. I will say that there has been tough times during the summer where we are short staffed in more than 1 department, but we all manage to pull together and make the facility run successfully. The hardest part of the job is having to sometimes do multiple departments at once if it's needed. Or having up to 20 children in the daycare at once, with different age groups, while having to do a tour or greet new members. One of the most enjoyable part of the job is making a new child feel welcomed on their first time in, and begging their parent to bring them back.
