Pros

Great people to work with, the park district works really hard at trying to educate the public about environmental issues.

Cons

They seem to find it hard to recognize talented people in seasonal positions. They make it very hard to move up. Lots of people just waiting in a seasonal position for their chance to make a difference.

    I worked at Three Rivers Park

    Pros

    Pros.
    -pay.
    -energetic, fun employees
    -Moving all day
    -Some of the BEST supervisors I've ever worked with. their willingness to help you as an employee, if it be needing more hours or time off.
    -Free season pass. Yes. All winter as long as you keep your job.

    Cons

    Cons.
    -Cleaning the challet is ridiculous. I've never been to a bussines where customers are so freely allowed to trash the place with food and drinks. Floors, tables, everything. Your responsibility to keep your indivdual section clean. Check it hourly, it builds up quick.
    -Laid back supervisors tend to push important issues to the side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees know further in advance about problems. There were a handfull of employees unhappy with supervisors not dealing with things.

    I have been working at Three Rivers Park

    Pros

    Great employee, amazing park and office views, fair employment. The three rivers park district offers beautiful working environment fun opportunities and health care benefits! Three Rivers University is a great employee education program. You can't beat the employees, they are the best! 28 parks, a national golf course, ski slope, and nature centers.

    Cons

    Wages have been chilled for five years and cola was revoked in 2009. Early retirement, attrition and not rehiring open positions has strained the compliment of employees in the park district. Doing less with more is getting very challenging. Lots of changes going on reduced staff and keeping up the effort of quality park experiences for the park guests has been taxing on reduced staff compliment. even though the Park District has quality jobs and experiences wages are forcing good people to go to new employer paying better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
