Fun environment with little pay and long hours

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Pedalheads is a great summer job for highschool students. Those under the age of 18 will be given the most hours as well as those with the most experience. I enjoyed working at pedalheads however I was not given that many hours and the hours I did work I was exhausted after and had to complete lesson plans every night. The pay, the hours and experience are great for those still in school. I would not recommend pedalheads for those that have finished highschool and are in university or are living on there own trying to pay rent.


Fun collaborative group, relaxed work environment


Long hours, unpaid lunch break, not many hours given

Nice place to work for students with no experience!

Not a bad job at all, was paid full time minimum wage last summer ($15/h) for a pretty consistent schedule of 35-37.5 hours a week. Made lots of friends, and gained great childcare experience. Very solid company that offers returning raises, just a pretty tiring job as expected from a summer camp.


Fun work environment


Long hours in the sun

Fun workplace for kids

The friends I've made that have turned into family, the kids I have been able to watch grow up from kids, to teenagers and even high school graduates. The beautiful landscape we are blessed to be able to work on, no other day camp in Houston like ours. the fieldtrips we would take with our age groups that allowed us to bond and grow even closer with our campers.

Fun working with kids

Good summer job if you enjoy working with kids. The people you get to work with are amazing. Being out in the sun all day on very hot days with minimal shade is the only thing I didn’t like.


Working with kids, people


Outside in the hot sun all day

Pretty good for a first job.

Long hours working in the heat. The best part was working with the kids however the management was not very good. Would recommend it for a high school job.


All the kids! Staff.


Bad management.

boringest camp with crazy children

you have to "teach kids how to ride a bike" when some can and others just do not care. they were put in the camp clearly by their parents and they have no interest in riding a bike. the activities are the same each week it is so boring

Fun, active job.

The job was fun and fast-paced, but very rewarding. Being responsible for children is always slightly stressful but being able to play with them all day made it all worth it. The pay was minimum wage but that isn't out of the ordinary for a camp counselor.

Fun Summer Job Working Outside

Great co-workers and management but some long days. Great job if you're looking for something casual but I wouldn't recommend if you're looking for a serious salary.

Fun workplace with good staff members

Pedal Heads was a great place to work with mazing staff members! I grew a lot as a person at this job, learning how to work under pressure and excelling in what I did!

Fun but disorganized

Decent place to work; all employees are young and get along well but that also means the on-site supervision may be inexperienced. Skill placements were not always accurate and as a new instructor, it could be difficult to create a lesson plan for a group that had a vast spectrum of skill levels.

Overall fun place to work

Overall, Pedalheads was a fun camp to work at. Minimum wage isn't enough, the pay should be higher. Management is easy going and nice. Training is mandatory in early June, they give good instruction and train you on everything you need to know.


Weekends and holidays off

Really fun coworkers

The schedule was really iffy, usually you found out from week to week with sometimes no work for the week, or sometimes full days. The management was always stressed and passed it onto the coworkers, but the best part was the coworkers. They rocked and helped us get through the day. Go for the coworkers and the kids.

Very fun environment helping children, rain or shine teaching so it does get hot but it's fun nonetheless

The people, CEO (which I met), program and organization is phenomenal. Though it starts at 11/hr, if you were to get your Coach's license and do it a few summers in a row, they pay gets much better. Though it gets very hot, there is always somewhere to fill your water bottle, classrooms at the sites to teach the kids other important safety tips, understanding management. I highly recommend for a stable,summer job.


Amazing environment, great for a resume, amazing people
