    I worked at Boy Scouts of America part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with youth is always an enjoyable opportunity. Being able to utilize and teach a programming model as valuable as the one Scouting provides is awesome. As a youth getting the responsibility to develop educational programs, to lead colleagues and participants in a wide variety of situations, and to develop a huge range of individual skills was remarkable.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but the hours at the camp were long and challenging. But that is to be expected with any youth summer programming.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America.

    Interview

    Standard interview questions. They will search into your private life before the interview so be prepared for that. The boy scouts is a moralist company and will approach you about anything they consider contrary to their beliefs.
