    I worked at THINK Together part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The kids are great, other program leaders are nice

    Cons

    Training VERY minimal. Pay is low. You're given a lot of kids, which can be overwhelming and hard to keep track of. HR is run by a bunch of mean women who like to gossip and have never worked with kids.

    Advice to Management

    Absolutely nothing, I would never work with you guys even for a dollar.

    Pros

    Great experience working with kids. You can impact their lives positively, and move up if you're good.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great considering how many kids you're responsible for. It's good if you're a student though.

    I worked at THINK Together (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    i have nothing to say. i am very disappointed in this organization

    Cons

    i was lied on multiple times by my site-coordinator, and when it was brought to the attention of the higher supervisors, it was just swept under the rug like it did not matter if it happened.

    Advice to Management

    seek into personal morals when hiring site coordinators and also QAC's

    Pros

    -The kids obviously. Definitely get that 1-on-1 time with all of them if you can. And don't let the "at-risk" title fool you. Your trust and guidance makes a huge difference in their behavior and overall performance. -My team. Our site was very tight-knit and we could rely on each other to listen to one another and even provide advice whenever necessary.

    Cons

    -Everything pretty much falls on your shoulders. If something goes awry during program, count on the QAC's and other higher ups to find some way to credit it to your "incompetence". -With budget cuts, hours are less and my coworkers and I found it difficult to meet company expectations while only allotted 18.75 hours a week. We found ourselves working off the clock a lot of the time.

    Advice to Management

    If you want us to make a great meal, at least provide us with the right ingredients, utensils, and lessons needed to make that great meal.
