    Pros

    The Jewish Community Center in Maitland was absolutely amazing. Everyone was so nice and it was so much fun. Best job I have ever had.

    Cons

    Because it is the Jewish Community Center, you must be open to Jewish culture and tradition. It can be very fun however to participate. Food restrictions were difficult but definitely necessary to keep children with allergies safe.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management at the Jewish Community Center was great. Keep up the good work. It was definitely a great experience.

    Pros

    This was a great company to work for while I put myself through school. Not a great long term career path.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of room for growth within very small organization. No real way to move up or gain permanent employment.

    Advice to Management

    Try to put more into employees. Raises for part time employees were not given and pay was not high enough to get away with doing that.

  7. Awesome environment and great people to work with. Really allowed me to learn and grow on my own and have fun!

    Pros

    Great place to meet people, grow professionally, learn how to problem solve and network with like minded people.

    Cons

    Learning how to deal with different types of parents and now to move forward. Other than that no cons at all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing. It's a great place to work. Keeps it exciting and fun and makes me want to recommend to for friends.

    Pros

    You'll get hours, even if they're not when you want
    Everyone likes you and is nice, at first

    Cons

    Pay is entirely based on how much the supervisor likes you. I made over $10/hr, but other lifeguards were making minimum wage.
    Members absolutely hate you, be prepared for them to yell at you for no reason
    Be prepared for your supervisor to gossip about you to your coworkers

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and start acting professional. Also, you are the ONLY fitness center that would not discount or give free membership to employees

  9. AWESOME!
