Great fun being a rolemodel for children with sacrificed pay and benefits.

ProsLove for doing work that may help others. Contribution toward community.

ConsThe pay is not the best but for a high school student or early college is respectable. They do not allow overtime. Are very strict with dress code ex. I am a recreation employ whos job is to supervise children and assist with activities, sports, an games, but they insist on designer jeans being unproffesional, as well as any patterned shorts whether it is black and grey plaid or subtle stripes.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo focus on both sides of the story when their is employee conflictions and put time in visiting the sites and providing necesities for proper functionality of the program.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
