What do you like about working at Junior Achievement?

"I enjoy events and like meeting people. I find event day really fulfilling and energizing."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I would shop carefully. There are plenty of Junior Achievement branches and they are not all created equal."

What don't you like about working at Junior Achievement?

"Management doesn't know what they're doing yet they interfere and prevent me from doing my job well. They scapegoat."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Create an accurate budget, provide budgets for different departments (especially revenue generating departments that need to do cost benefit analysis), provide necessary training, provide regular reviews, bonuses and raises, make the organization much more transparent, get rid of under-performing employees or those who engage in unethical/unprofessional behavior. I would make it a requirement to experience the programs first-hand to better understand the mission and feel a commitment to and understanding of what we're working for. I would hire an HR manager that could protect us from illegal/unprofessional behavior and questions from higher ups and could provide accurate information on simple things like how much vacation time I actually have and what rate I accrue it at. I would make sure higher ups are not interfering with their employees' work in ways that are counterproductive, making more stress and work for no reason and making their jobs more difficult for nothing."
