The job was easy yet sometimes unorganized.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The job was easy. Where I was, the tasks weren't hard. Some of the employees however, being teens, they were lazy and unprofessional at times. The manager was nice but was very stressed do to work things(I would suppose) and health issues. This make her to become unorganized at times. When tasks were given out they tended to get translated badly and hence thing that were to be done weren't done correctly, amongst other problems. Overall, in the end many tasks were completed to achieve our goal in the job.

Pros

Free lunch and good pay.

Cons

The lunch was gross and we didn't get our pay until the end of our session.

Amazing work, terrible work/life balance

The work we did was really meaningful but at times it would be very overwhelming or tiring because we would work from 6am to 11pm. Too much work for 4 people, too many things to do.

Pros

Pay, Free food, fun environment

Cons

No real breaks

Gained knowledge and building of work skills

It was a virtual experience for my first year so there’s not much excitement going on. We just learned basic work skills online and how to build and strengthen a resume, things like that.

Our jobs were centured around how best to help our clients.

Work-life balanceWork-life balance at Youthworks is accommodating.Pay & benefitsMy pay and benefits at Youthworks are sufficient but I did not like getting paid once a month.Job security and advancementIn terms of job security at Youthworks, I think there is job security at youthworks. No one could have planned for a worldwide pandemic.ManagementIn general, managers at Youthworks expected you to get your job done, with minimum supervision. We had weekly meetings and our managers were always available if we had questions.CultureCollaboration with my colleagues at Youthworks is mandatory every week.OverallMy experience working at Youthworks was one of of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had.

Trip Consultant

Great place to work - too bad COVID-19 hit and made it difficult to offer their model of service. Would be willing to return once things return to normal .

Very fun place place to be

I worked within a church and helped run VBS and other events as well as doing construction work for several poor areas. A typical day at work is waking up knowing you will make a difference in someones life. we did several things for the needy as a volunteering program and they outreach to make people feel safe as well as get help.

City of Berkeley Playgrounds Summer Camp

Working with children has taught me how to be patient and how to be creative and imaginative. Working with kids requires you to be engaged with them and keep their day busy and fun.

Pros

Interact with joyful and sweet kids

Cons

On your feet all day

Great experience.

Youthworks equipped me with interview skills. A variety of job experiences and many new connections within the work field. The managers acted as a support system for the workers with a weekly meeting set up for checking in on employees. I was grateful for the experience.

Typical day at work

It was a great job, I learned a lot. It was a starter job, I couldn’t wait to grow and learn from it and explains my horizons. A typical day at work was us doing manual labor, we helped paved trails and clean up beaches. We planted flowers and helped the environment. They taught us a lot about nature and everything. Management was very resourceful and we could depend on it
