Pros

As a mentor, you set your own schedule and you have the opportunity to be a positive role model in kids' lives.

Cons

The pay isn't that great as a mentor. Also, there are some risks associated with spending time with troubled adolescents and you often experience violence, profanity, and poor behavior.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management within the company should more actively seek out college students by participating in career fairs and other various activities to get the company's name out there.

    Pros

    Leave policy was very generous, if leave time was approved. Opportunities for advancement if you are a hard worker.
