      Pros

      The people where really amazing the community they fostered was really cool. Also the pay was good for a part time job.

      Cons

      the prospect of being sued might of been over emphasized to ensure safety but it was a startling prospect.

      Unhealthy Culture

      Pros

      The pro was representing the crest.

      Cons

      I realize they are "trying" to change the culture around, but they are doing a terrible job of actually doing so. The org is highly disorganized, there is an immense amount of work to be done and places incompetent people in management positions, thus making it difficult to make any real progress. The organization values lying, manipulative bullies over employees with heart and a passion for the sport. During my time there, I was made to feel like a criminal, outcast and was publically humiliated on almost a daily basis. The org boasts a commitment to diversity, but does nothing to actually support, empower and retain diverse talent. "Leaders" boast about drowning in work and meetings like it's a badge of honor, yet, you can tell they actually do nothing most of the time. They assign the busy body work to low-paid, low-level employees while they do nothing or chat about their day or gossip about people on their team or in the org. There is zero management training and "managers" think they can do and say whatever they want to you. If something goes wrong it will always be your fault. If something goes right, they will take all of the credit themselves. The org fosters a toxic environment in which the more evil you are, the more you will be trusted, promoted and monteraily rewarded. Please do yourself a favor and stay away from this organization at all costs. They do not and will not care about you, unless you are also a selfish and bad person.

      Pros

      Good money for an hour, you get all earnings and only pay an initial price that you can make back easily. Center generally pays 10$ more.

      Cons

      Disorganized system, often was booked for two games at once, but this is easily avoided if you checked emails regularly and kept organized. The parents were also almost always rude.

      Not a ton of communication needed with boss, but other refs are usually easy to work with

      Pros

      The most communication there is is phone calls with your assigner, emails, and text messages. The other refs are usually nice. If you want a job with low supervision and minimal coworkers, this is the job. You get to be outdoors, lots of money for a teenager, and it can be fun to watch the antics.

      Cons

      The parents, coaches, and players can get a bit mouthy, and as long as you don't let it get to your head it can be very fun to watch. If you are an AR then its a lot of standing around which can be boring towards the end of the game. The other refs can be a bit odd or annoying, but you only have to work with them a day or two. Depending on your assigner there may be issues with scheduling, but my assigner is very competent
