    I worked at City of Richmond Virginia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get paid and holidays off.

    Cons

    I worked with Parks and Rec for two summers and it was absolutely terrible. The management is rude and judges you based on how you look. I loved working with the children, however it was not enough to keep me in the toxic workplace. They expect so much, when they don't even train you properly. NOT ONCE was I CPR and FIRST AID certified, so I was working with children without this because they did not offer this training to their employees. One coworker I had was very inappropriate with the underage children and the management knew about it, and STILL HIRED THEM AGAIN for the next year. Disgusting. There is also a huge nepotism problem, so if you aren't related to someone or know someone closely, you can bet to lose your job to someone way less qualified. They never showed me my pay stubs either and multiple requests.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a change in management, someone who is qualified and knows what is best for children.
