    I worked at Boy Scouts of America part-time

    Pros

    Make your own schedule, get to work with kids, there's a lot of autonomy.

    Cons

    Poor management, what they say is never consistent, when Austin ISD is closed (winter break, spring break, etc.) it's difficult to get any hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America.

    Interview

    comfortable phone interview, very pleasant and then a face to face in office.
    Meeting with multiple people in a three step process. The envirornment was exciting and energetic and seemed to be at that level until the discussion of salary and then it became sort of somber and not as much energy, but the promise for quick growth made it more comfortable to discuss.
