    I loved my Job, but the management wasn't especially easy to work with.

    Counselor (Current Employee)
    College Station, TX

    ProsAs a part time Kids Klub Counselor I got paid to play with kids. It was a blast! The kids were great, my staff were wonderful, and if I could still make it work I'd still be there.

    ConsThe work schedule wasn't flexible at all, so I had to quit when my school schedule interfered with work. And the upper management was hard to deal with and not willing to work with employees the majority of the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more understanding of your employees schedules, especially since the majority of them are students.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great job, wouldn't change much

    Event Worker (Former Employee)
    College Station, TX

    Pros-People are great
    -Lots of opportunity
    -Varied work environment
    -Good Leadership

    Overall, I had a great time working for the city and will look back on it as a positive experience. You have the opportunity to make important network connections, work outside and schedule the hours that you want to work. For a college job, you can't ask for much more.

    Cons-Occasional city government bureaucracy issues

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on your shining stars, get rid of the underachievers

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
