    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    They are great working with your schedule and get hours there is fairly easy. Parts of management work great. Great place to work for a short term.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. Expect to get burnt out after a couple of years due to poor commuication, being over worked and gossipe. Expect to get no help getting subs when your struggling to find one and expect to having to spend close to 4 hours to 2 day trying to find one.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the staff you have more and the people who have been there the long hall asks their opinion on issues and listen. provide more training for management positions or it breaks down. Listen when they come to you for help.

    I worked at Foothills Park and Recreation District part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible scheduling and large staff base. Good training opportunities for update of required skills and professional development. Accessible promotional path.

    Cons

    Culture varies between facilities and site staff tends to form cliques. Distance between middle and upper management is large.

    Advice to Management

    Try to develop more of a flat company structure. Organizational visibility up to the top is key to cohesion among entry-level employees.

    I worked at Foothills Park and Recreation District part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great job while going to school. Working from 3-6 after school gave me the nice extra money, but didn't give me an overloaded scheduled and allowed to still focus on my coursework. Also, all of my co-workers of my level were awesome to work with. Workers aged 16-22 and almost all of them had awesome personalities that were easy to work with.

    Cons

    There was never enough workers on the substitute list. This made it hard to find a an afternoon off when needed, but the children's programs supervisor tried her hardest to accommodate when able. High turnover rate of employers, so always experiencing new co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.
