Reviews for River Road Presbyterian Church

Reviews - What employees say

2.61 Employees say
0.00 Applicants say

Freedom to work independently

Workload is fair. Part timers have no say in anything no matter what knowledge and experience is brought to the table by that employee.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Only one long-serving employee out of 3 was shown appreciation.

Career Development

Only one employee was supported through further training and given opportunities for personal development.

Overall compensation for your work

Wages were on target but at the lower end of the wage scale for each position. Salaries were always paid on time. Benefits were provided for full time employees. No perks for anyone except one employee.

Office / Work Environment

Computers are up to date except that not all the employees have the same version of Windows. Lighting is not good in the office and only the carpet was cleaned in 2 1/2 years I was there.

Company Image

Being a church there were only 2 employees who were non members. Most of the employees were not happy with the way things were operated.

Workplace Safety

No safety training was provided.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make sure their Director of Operations has supervisory experience/training. Listen and give consideration to the opinions if all their employees who work there everyday, not just one person's opinion.

What I like about the company

Congregation members were wonderful. Lots of activities for members, some of which non-member employees were allowed to participate in. Ministry members were a delight to work with. The Music Director was wonderful to work closely with due to his ability and willingness to teach you what you didn't know because you needed to know it.

What I dislike about the company

Not all the Directors were treated with equal fairness. One non-member employee was put up on a pedestal by two of the personnel ministry members and treated as if she could do no wrong. In the beginning I was micro-managed and told everyday what I did wrong but not what I was doing right because at the time that person had no immediate manager to report to. I had been spoken to condescendingly and disrespectfully many times by the person in charge of the office. After 2 1/2 years of working at RRPC I was out for 5 weeks for surgery, came back to work and 2 weeks later I was let go. The temporary employee that replaced me while out sick was hired permanently. I know for a fact it was planned long before I went out for surgery to replace me because temps were interviewed for a 20+hrs/wk position. That is not a normal practice when hiring a temp for a short term assignment. The one non-member employee can not be trusted. I was blessed when the members of the church treated me extremely well after my surgery but I had no communication from any of my fellow employees while recovering. Not even a card. While working there I heard Christian people speak VERY Non-Christian like about other members. It was an eye opening experience about the politics of a church organization. In some respects I felt like part of a team and in other respects I felt like this - What do I know? I'm just a part timer who works there everyday. What I saw, heard, or knew did not matter. Every job has it's share of stress but it only took one employee to make it more stressful than necessary for all the employees.
