Worked at Apple auto glass for this program.
YMCA (job program) - Apple auto glass (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONJuly 14, 2013
Pros: great coworkers
Cons: 1 fan, in a store thats 30-35 degrees.
Dealt with windshields, fixing broken windshields, replacing them, fixing small chips.

Learned how to clean a windshield, change whiper blades, put on a windshield, use equipment etc.

Coworkers were amazing people, really friendly and they had many good life stories to share with me.

Hardest part of the job is a really busy day, was tough handling – more... all the customers especially with no air conditioner.

Most enjoyable part, was bonding with my bosses, being able to talk when we had free time and just share stories. – less

Outside of the comfort zone
Volunteer Work (Former Employee), Pointe-Claire, QCJuly 2, 2013
At around 14 or 15 I had done some foolish acts on my part. As a consequence for my actions I had been given 20 hours of community service to complete. They registered me with a community service located in the housing projects in the city of Pierrefonds. This wasn't a wealthy community at all. My job was to clean the appartments where community gatherings – more... are held and help with any services my supervisor needed assistance with. This volunteer work put me out of my comfort zone and to be honest opened my eyes. This was an exellent experience for me – less

Easy, but poor management
Cleaner (Current Employee), winnipeg, mbJune 24, 2013
Pros: easy work
Cons: poor management and mind numbing boredom
West Portage has poor management skills, as in they neglect others and only care about themselves and see themselves as being a higher person within society and look down to others. Only select managers share this, and ruin the atmosphere for others, Typical day is little to no work as no one cares so you get basically free money for doing nothing, – more... which sounds good, but in reality it's soooo boring. Good high school job. – less

Kids are fun and always surprise you

You always got your exercise running around in the playground and helping the kids participate in games and activities or being encouraged because you saw a kid do something amazing that they thought that they didn't have the confidence to do until you gave them a little push.
