I worked at Boy Scouts of America as an intern (More than a year)

Expand your knowledge of the outdoors and share with others. Create memories to last a lifetime.

Low pay, opportunity to truly have a lasting impact on the kids is difficult with available time together.

    I worked at Boy Scouts of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Extremely rewarding.
    Coworkers become a family.

    Cons

    Very political, a lot of brown nosing will get you places.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective about camp administration. They have weeded out some great people who genuinely cared and replaced them with low-quality employees


  2. "I love this job!"

    Pros

    I do not have a scouting background, but I love the organization, and my job. I keep waiting for that feeling I've had with other jobs where you just don't like it anymore, but I don't get that with this job. I am more than willing to do things at night and on the weekends, because I love the organization and the volunteers.

    Cons

    If you do not have enough volunteers, it is difficult to perform well

    Advice to Management

    I think that things are ran very well.
