    I love working for the Church. It has been a great blessing for me and my family. Excellent benefits and the quality of people I work with are outstanding.

    Cons

    It may be time for the Church to update it's pay scale. The cost of living has increased significantly in the past decade in the U.S. , the pay has not.

    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Multiple different shifts options
    Excellent Pay
    Excellent Environment
    Easy work

    I was able to be a stay at home mom during the days and work late at night part time or early int he morning. I worked here for 10 years and it was a great place to be. was able to meet some amazing people and be "backstage'during major events on Temple Square. Always treated with respect and thanked for my hard work from visitors to TS.

    Cons

    Didn't always see eye to eye with some of the management, at times felt like just a "janitor" by supervisors. Unfortunately, there was at times gossip and rumors that fly like wild fire around there but if you just stay out of the drama your fine.

    Advice to Management

    Even if your management over the custodial department - you too are a custodian. and Just treat everyone with respect.
    All in all it is a great place to be and a great part time job for early hours and late in teh night hour as well.
