    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits that includes full coverage insurance and retirement!

    Cons

    Hours are definitely crazy in the summer. If you don't want evening hours and weekends for events, you don't want this job.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone is a young, energetic go-getter, doesn't mean they are right for this job in the smaller more rural areas. Finding peopleilder than their 20's that have insight into the community, probably kids in or through school, experience in Relay itself, and other small community events, is going to be more effective in establishing good relationships with the communities and make Relay strong.
