    Wish I felt more support from Senior management

    Head Lifeguard (Former Employee)
    Chico, CA

    ProsGood work/ life balance, direct supervisor was supportive and friendly, coworkers were fantastic- great atmosphere

    ConsThe pool staff was always afraid of down sizing, there were some safety concerns due to low staffing- blamed on budget cuts. As a head guard I performed evaluations, but there was little effect- people who needed to be let go were not, despite repeated talks with supervisor.

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

    Given the freedom to do my job

    Tutor (Former Employee)
    Chico, CA

    ProsI enjoyed the flexible working hours. The work culture was great and there was a feeling of teamwork among the other tutors. The leadership at the Student Learning Center was supportive and helpful. The goal was to provide the best service we could and extra trainings were given so each tutor could be as useful to his tutees as possible.

    ConsThe low pay was easily the worst part of working here. I did not feel like I was being paid commensurate with my skill level, education level, and passion for the job

    The most beneficial experience I've received from an hourly wage position.

    Student Caller/Fundraiser (Current Employee)
    Chico, CA

    ProsLearned how to effectively communicate ideas to people of all ages, the strategies behind fundraising/making a sales pitch. Easily the most useful experience I've ever gained from an hourly position. 3 hour shifts keep you from getting sick of the job. Management is understanding and willing to help you learn the skills needed, so long as they see the initial potential. Positive reinforcement is everywhere, and getting a donation is always acknowledged with positive feedback. Donuts or bagels are usually brought in on Saturday morning shifts.

    ConsSitting in a basement for the entire duration of the shift gets old fast. Listening to answering machines for up to an hour and a half at a time.
