    I worked at Jewish Community Center part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I got to talk with everyone who came in and out of the doors and made tons of friends working up there regardless of age because of the daily exposure.

    Cons

    Having to wake up at 4:45 to open the building sometimes. It’s not that bad though, you get a lot of the daylight back that way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing you!

      Pros

      Fun staff and summer experiences. Freedom to create your own curriculum.

      Cons

      Outdoor pavilion does little to alleviate sweltering, humid summer days. Time structure day-to-day is a bit chaotic. Lots of work for low pay.

      I have been working at Jewish Community Center part-time

      Pros

      The people are amazing. Everyone is caring and wonderful. From the purely summertime employees to the CEO everyone is welcoming. It is simply a great environment to be in.

      Cons

      They will not pay you much, promote you, let you work extra hours, or give you benefits if it can be avoided. All cost cutting corners are cut and often at the expense of the employees. This is not a long term job.

      I worked at Jewish Community Center full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Health and Dental insurance are ok and JCC covers a good portion of it

      Cons

      Salaries are super low and benefits could be better, especially for staff who worked here for a long time

      Advice to Management

      INCREASE salaries, obtain more benefits for staff, like FSA. If teachers are happy then kids and parents will be happy

      I worked at Jewish Community Center part-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      The patrons were mostly friendly and managers were understanding of schedule needs/ accommodations. Pay was fair and the option for more hours almost always available.

      Cons

      Some patrons were rude and entitled. Of course the summer heat sucked. Some kids during swim lessons would be rude or bully other kids.
