Very flexible work hours allowed staff to work around their own lives, which encouraged long-time staff to continue to work with the City. Very rewarding to watch children grow and learn from our instruction, and see them improve as individuals.
Typical day teaching programs or doing activities with campers. Supervisors are always attentive and open, willing to give constructive feedback. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with people who were able to work with me and create a safe and fun environment for participants and ourselves.
A good place to work if you want seasonal, contract work. Changes occur frequently. People change positions frequently. lots of time spent setting up and cleaning up. Great place to meet people. Management is somewhat cold to contract and part time employees. Lack of communication and cohesiveness leaves employees feeling neglected and unappreciated.
flexible schedule if needed
preparation time not paid for
A typical day at work here would involve intensive set up, depending on the program you teach. In particular to mine, over excessive, unpaid 2-3 hours of work was needed. I learned that connections and strong relationships need to be built in order to have your voice heard in the workplace.
As a program instructor, I have the freedom of creating my own programs for the participants. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with and learning from people with diverse work backgrounds all of whom have an invested interest in community and recreation. The hardest part of this job is the hours. Because programs are regimented on an 8 - 10 week cycle, there are month long breaks in between which makes the hours inconsistent.
