    I have been working at Chicago Park District part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Watching children grow every single day
    Good pay
    Flexible schedule
    Incredible networking opportunities (with colleagues, parents, and patrons)
    Coworkers become family

    Cons

    Hard to move up
    Definitely a "who you know" kind of environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you haven't already, come teach a class or two. I feel that when speaking, everyone who promotes the parks should be able to say "I taught (insert sport or activity here)! This is why our classes are really great and everyone should know about these programs."
