Director/supervisor of playgrounds (Current Employee) – Rockford, IL – November 18, 2017
rotations with shifts through out the park. Played games and had fun every day at the park. We had a lot of staff to work with the kids. I like that the park district did a lot of training for their employees before they were allowed to work.
The opportunity to work with children is, in my opinion, an amazing one.
Tennis Instructor (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – August 28, 2017
As a tennis instructor, along with my work partner, we had free-reign as to the activities we chose to implement at different community centers around the city. Sometimes there were too many kids for two people to handle. Otherwise it was a fun learning experience.
Recreational Program Director (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL 61104 – July 14, 2017
A typical day at work was always fun. The things I have learned at this job was to always be there for the clients day in an day out. Always make fun time for clients. My management team was great, and fun. Workplace culture was very good. The hardest part of the job was dealing with rainy days where we were limited on what activities we were able to do because of being outside. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing you make a child smile when they were struggling for the day. Having a parent tell you, you have made a difference in my child's life

If you like kids it is a great place to work. You do have to be willing to help out the troublesome kids while also making sure the shy quite kids and the ones in between all get attention also and it is not as easy as one would think.

Leader 2, Therapeutic Recreation Assistant (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – March 17, 2016
Though the Rockford Park District was a great place to work, it was not the line of work in which I wanted to pursue. Great place to start employee and an even better place to pursue recreation or youth works.
