Enjoyed volunteering and interacting with the public
Volunteer (Former Employee), Cornwall, ONNovember 19, 2012
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: not being able to please everyone
A typical day volunteering was fun, I was always looking forward to seeing who I would be working with. I learned how to set tables properly and I managed to carry multiple plates at once. My co-workers were very friendly and I got to meet a lot of different volunteers. The hardest part of the job was trying not to break anything when clearing the tables. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the managers because they were always playing jokes, laughing and making me feel comfortable. I also enjoyed being able to interact with the public, you get to meet a lot of different people.

Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee), Zanesville, OHJanuary 13, 2015
Working at the Knights was fun. I got to cook, bar tend, and get paid well for it. It was busy at times, especially on game days, but most times it was pretty slow. The customers were very nice and there was great opportunity for advancement.

Clerk Typist (Current Employee), New Haven, CTJanuary 10, 2015
Pros: health insurance and benefits package
Cons: lack of transparency among management.
It is a fast-pace environment. It is all about production, production, production.We strive--every year, to expand out products, around the world. I work along-side our Underwriters.I request and receive, insurer's medical information. I input it, into our system.
The hardest part of the job, " knowing you have other interest and skills, and those skills , are not being utilized!" The most enjoyable part of my job , has to be the people I meet, and my co-workers.
Through out the 7 years , working at the Knights of Columbus, I have learned to balance work and life., organizational skills and good business practices--ethics.

Early hours, not a lot of help.
Bartender and Server (Former Employee), Lansing, ILNovember 25, 2014
Pros: usually off before noon.
Cons: trucks come early, sometimes would have to be at work before 3 am. no set schedule.
There were only two people in our department, so sometimes, especially around the holidays we would be unloading and checking in freight nearly all day. I did however learn a lot about shipping and receiving, and inventory. A skill that I will no doubt use again someday.

Cons: commission based income
Learned and continuing to learn all aspects of the life insurance business.
Able to work from home.

Excellent work environment
Field Agent (Former Employee), West Hempstead, NYJuly 29, 2014
A typical day at work was to do paperwork in the morning and then do customer calls in the afternoon. I provided insurance to members and their families. I worked out each clients financial plan so I could see their assets and give direction as to where the gaps in insurance coverage was. My coworkers were all professional insurance agents. The hardest part of the job was getting new members to join the organization. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping a member when we uncovered a need.

Basically a volunteer job.
Janitor/ Dishwasher/ Bartender (Former Employee), Marshfield, WIJuly 4, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: hardly any hours
It was basically a volunteer job but I had fun. A lot of the people that worked there were older and of the Christian type. It held banquets in the hall or weddings and such. It wasn't a fast paced environment.

Very enjoyable company to work for
Insurance Field Agent (Former Employee), Portland, ORJune 25, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, good compensation, family values
Cons: assigned sales territory, sales goals only life insurance and not other services
Making telephone calls to fraternal organization membership or prospective members to arrange appointments to discuss fraternal benefits including insurance.

Management was average, would like more assistance/training for obtaining leads. Sales territory is assigned membership councils and some of the prospects are limited.

Co-workers are great! This is a fraternal organization so most of the members have common interests and values that make it very comfortable to work with. The most enjoyable part is meeting with members and helping them take care of family financial and support services.

volunteer (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOMay 8, 2014
Pros: i could work with people with simular beliefs or ideas for life
Cons: i was not paid a real salery.
For a typical day volunteering for the Knights I would plan to show up on time and stay until everything was done. I would usually help set up for the events. I would usually learn the task as I was working on it. I would try the best that I could at all times to complete the job as well as anyone else,
