    I have been working at National Recreation and Park Association full-time (more than 3 years)


    I am very committed to recreation and health. NRPA provides parks information to help them keep a focus on health and fitness. The work is rewarding on a daily basis. Very flexible work schedules and focused to family needs. Open door policy on communications. All ideas are listened to and considered in relationship with the goals and purpose set out for the association.


    The economy took a hit on the budget of members. Changes were made to correct for the corrections in local budgets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep paced with members needs. Keep us relevant to the industry.

    Positive Outlook

    Received a phone call from HR regarding my application I had submitted and was left a voicemail. I called back five times that day and over the course of a week left three voicemails and even e-mailed HR regarding calling back to the voicemail and received NO response back. What a joke that HR is. Their loss.
