    Pros

    Great coworkers. Management is fairly nice. You become CPR and first aid certified for free upon employment. Free YMCA membership!! Working with kids is always fun.

    Cons

    You hardly get any hours, which is a bit of a bummer. if you have bills or are a college student who needs extra money to go towards tuition, this is probably not the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know who is working below you better! Relax. (:

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make sure the site directors are training the ALL the staff. and there is no lack of communication. the kids at my site were complaining about 1 mean counselor. have better salary then minimum wage
