    Pros

    Pretty much guaranteed summer employment if you do a decent job, fun environment, fun people to work with, opportunities to move up to a supervisory role, great benefits like access to any park in the county, including fitness centers.

    Cons

    uniforms are not the best fabric to be wearing outside during the summer, working with teenagers is not always the best, and you will not be making much more then minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Park needs some better upkeep, things look dingy and somewhat run down.

    Pros

    Decent pay without Bachelor's degree, great staff and environment, coworkers were awesome people, working with children has its own rewards, flexible hours, etc. It was pretty great while in school (community college or you Mason folk).

    Cons

    The management while I was employed was terrible (has since been changed). Lack of funding for necessities, lack of options for children with different diets, all responsibility placed on counselors despite many problems stemming from management, lack of defined roles, SERIOUS PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT TO CERTAIN STAFF (though I was lucky to be among them), no way to report management to higher authority.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge counselors who go above-and-beyond, reward those who do more than you despite being younger, don't play favorites, and do NOT hire unqualified people for management.
