    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Chicago Park District in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Great interview, very basic questions towards children of inner city and staff. Working with teens and adults for Chicago Summer league. Nevertheless it took a very long time to process but overall a great experience to date.

    Pros – A organization with a long history of dealing with inner city children and maintain community strong hold.

    Cons – No more than any other similar organization. Limited career opportunities.

    Advice to Senior Management – Look at the career ladders of other public organizations and notice the various steps. Consider staff retention as a principle goal.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
