Pros

Tom Sawyer camps is a family run business which has held true to its values over the years. These values have shaped it into one of the most professional and honest business around. Mike & Sally Horner have kept the business atmosphere inviting and friendly no matter how long you have worked for the company.

As an employ they treat you with the utmost respect. They are also extremely focused on the development of their staff: you! Before you begin working they equip you with every tool imaginable through wonderful well thought out training. The directors will also provide helpful constructive feedback. Tom Sawyer camps provides a safe environment to grow your skills. TSC is a wonderful summer job which will prepare you for anything down the road!

Cons

Working at Tom Sawyer can be one of the hardest jobs you ever have. Nothing about it is routine and you are often faced with challenging situations. With the amount of energy and responsibility required the pay can feel lackluster at times.

Tom Sawyer camps also has extremely limited opportunities for promotions within the company. Being such a small company the upper management rarely changes. If you are looking for a company you can grow with this may not be the best place to look.

    A great place to work with great people but hard to move significantly up the ladder

    Pros

    The Tom Sawyer staff is comprised of the nicest people around. The environment is very positive and is a great place to safely learn and grow. The directors are all very helpful and positive. They specialize in constructive feedback. Good starter/part-time job but not a permanent solution.

    Cons

    It is hard to maintain full-time employment with Tom Sawyer Camps when it is not Summer time. The directors of office staff are all the 'lifer' type and won't quit until they die or retire so openings to move up into full-time well paying positions are hard to come by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at Tom Sawyer Camps is actually great. My only real complaint is the quick wall one hits while trying to move up in the company.
