    I worked at City of Henderson, Neveda part-time

    Pros

    Easy job to get with no experience, steady and reliable, routine working hours that are fairly flexible as long as you stay consistent in the times you can work, payday every 2 weeks like clockwork, lax supervision (which has pros and cons I suppose), nothing too hard once you get into the groove of it, a great first job if you want something different than food service and retail (although, liking kids will probably make or break it for you) You get the profound feeling of watching children grow up and helping them along the way without the stress of being remotely responsible for them outside of work hours. I think I would've really loved this job if it weren't for where I was stationed.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. You may very well be sick constantly for the first 3 months of work because children don't wash their hands ever. It's a loud, hectic environment for most of the shift. It can be emotionally taxing. Sometimes a child will be going through something that even adults struggle to cope with, and you can only comfort them just like you comforted the child crying because they lost their eraser 10 minutes ago. All this said, experiences with this job vary wildly based on who's stationed where. I was placed in the school other city employees gossiped about because of how bad it was compared to their school. There are schools with 15 kids and 2 employees, and there are schools with 110 kids and 4 employees. I was placed in the latter. You will be told that as an RA your job is to manage games and crafts and you will not be handling things like discipline and any paperwork whatsoever, and this might hold completely true, but it didn't for me in the slightest. Once I got into the groove of working, I was running snack times, filling out behavioral write ups, and even calling parents on some occasions to inform them their child was sick. I was not even technically allowed to do any of this according to my job title, and I was still paid like I was doing none of it, but we were so understaffed and someone had to.

    Advice to Management

    Build your expectations of employees around the job site rather than keep them so rigid. Not every site can feasibly play game or do crafts everyday. Work on getting more recruits. Plenty of people would be interested in this job (and others like it) if they knew it was an option. Make the 8 hour training session useful and realistic for the work we have to do instead of team building exercises and games. I would've liked to know the protocol for a 6 year old saying the f-word, or at least, the protocol for a kindergartener having an accident.

    Pros

    Great work environment, very flexible and somewhat laid back environment

    Cons

    Hard to move up from part time status, policies encourage taking someone from a full time position in a different department rather than hiring someone currently part time.
