No opinion of CEO

I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

being a mentor to the kids

Cons

being a doormat for the management.

Also, after working there for 3 years i can tell you that the toys for tots inventory becomes the personal shopping (free shopping) location for all managers and employes. They items are picked over before any are actually shipped out.

Advice to Management

realize that most of the time the staff knows more about what is going on then you do lead from the bottom up and do not dictate results without understanding the foundation of any given issue.

    I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get a real sense of accomplishment helping out the youth who need guidance. I had a great manager who was clear and concise with what he expected out of the staff, which was to always put the kids first. A fun environment to work in, kids are awesome.

    Cons

    Dealing with admin sometimes can be a pain as they are not down in the trenches to understand staff's needs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to program aide's a little more to understand how small needs can become large needs.


  2. "Eye-opening experience to community needs"
