    I worked at United Cerebral Palsy part-time

    Pros

    Get to work one on one with really great children. It's nice meeting new people.

    Cons

    I showed up to work for my given schedule but when I showed up, I was told that I wasn't suppose to be there. When I discussed it with the manager, I was told that was the schedule. I finally told them I have a copy of the schedule in my email. As most people do, I made my life revolve around that schedule. I would have had no problem, if I was given notice. However, I wasn't given any notice and I was made to feel that I did something wrong. This happened two times. This is a very poor way to treat employees personal time. We all have families and other very, very important things going on in our lives. This treatment hurts people. When they make a mistake, all they have to do is apologize and be respectful. I was also told over and over I didn't turn in my time sheet. I finally had to tell them look I have a copy of the email I sent and I had sent it to two different managers, at least two times.

    Advice to Management

    We all make mistakes. When you make a mistake, just be honest and don't make the employee feel like it's their fault. I also feel like there is a nonchalant attitude toward, withholding information about schedules. What I mean is, they new they didn't give me the schedule and they think it's okay or maybe they just don't like owning up to it.
