Pros

Wonderful children and adults to work with. You really know that you're making a valuable difference in the lives of others.

Cons

Working the swimming programs, especially in the winter is definitely not the most pleasant experience ever but luckily you can control what you sign up for

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would certainly be helpful to know some of the other staff members better during programs although it's hard with the large number of employees.

    Pros

    There is flexible scheduling, and the programs you can work are diverse. WSSRA serves PWD at every age, and with a variety of needs.

    Cons

    Low pay, some coworkers are less motivated and more negative than others. Sometimes the supervisor choices with 3:1 group selection can be overwhelming for staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to RL feedback about 3:1 or 4:1 group selection. Choose these groups carefully. Consider raising the pay for RL or offering raises for good performance reviews.
