Suggestions for improvement

  • Just correcting management. I think if the big higher ups and big management would visit our sites more our boss would get off her high horse. They visit maybe once a year, twice maybe. But when they visit our boss acts different.

What I like about the company

I like working with the kids. It's not just a job. It might seem I view the job part negatively, no. I view the structure and the higher ups negatively. But the other aspect with working with the kids of the city is amazing and you get paid with the heart too.

What I dislike about the company

I don't like (with my boss) if you have a strong personality she doesn't like it. Which I still am obedient and I still do my job and I'm probably the best at it humbly speaking, I always do the right thing. But she doesn't like that I'm not a brown noser, I know it. She's given less capable less available for shifts scared to talk to parents people raises and promotions over me. You can tell she doesn't like me but she needs me because I do my job better then them. For instance she put me with 48 kids this summer with 2 weak personalities that don't tell the kids nothing and stay on their phones. The average group is 25 kids. I know better. I'm going to have to leave but my love for the kids is what keeps me around, or I wouldn't tolerate her treatment.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More interaction with our directors and our supervisors bosses. Because I’ve noticed when our bosses boss comes they start switching up personalities so I think in order for realistic fairness if our boss knew we had a relationship with his/her boss things would run more fair and realistic

What I like about the company

Working with the children of the non profit programs makes it all worth it and washes all the negativity away. They remind you consistently why you love to love your job!

What I dislike about the company

Working with the City, being a city employee, most of the time the higher uppers let their egos get in the way of being realistic or fair.
