    I worked at City of Cedar Rapids part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great job, especially if you like being outside and working with people. Teaching lessons is optional but a great addition to the job.

    Cons

    Working with the public can be challenging at times, other than that, no down side.

    Pros

    No real pros.No real pros.No real pros.No real pros.No real pros.

    Cons

    Work wasn't challenging. Low compensation. No growth potential. No reference will be provided at the end of the internship, due to upper management requirement to avoid law suit - what a joke. Just a summer job. Go better places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul internship program.
