    Current Employee in Irving, Texas

    Great retirement plan and insurance. Dental and vision benefits are also available. Health Savings Account is very useful. Overall, I think the benefits at the YMCA are above average.

    As an employee of the y, you receive a free membership so unlimited use of classes, pool, cardio equipment, etc. If you are part time, as I am, there is no health insurance package available. If you work two consecutive years of 1000 hours (total 2000) you become eligible for their employee matching retirement account. Otherwise it's just a standard 403b account offered. A very conservative retirement account but it's not nothing.

    Former membership/ Miracle League coordinator in Corpus Christi, Texas

    its far too much work for the amount being compensated.

    Current Employee in San Francisco, California

    Basic health, dental and medical package is included for full-time employees with copay per visit. All staff are able to sign-up for 403(b) program.

    I had no benefits for my position. The cost of participating in a benefits package for a part time employee at my salary and fluctuating hourly wages, would have defeated the purpose of a paycheck. I looked into the packages offered at one point but made the decision to stick with the coverage my family was receiving. However, during my first year of employment at the preschool, I worked more than sixteen hours a week, which qualified me for a free membership to the Y. This I accepted. I had no "vacation days" or "sick days". One day, I had to request the day off as I had been summoned to court as a witness. I know that some jobs offer compensation to employees who are required to appear in court on days when they are supposed to be at work. Unfortunately, that was a benefit I was not qualified for.

    What I like best is that the YMCA does offer a gym membership to part time employees. Other than that, I can not think of anything that is very beneficial for working as a part time employee with the YMCA. I was offered a family membership, and I can take a day or two off out of the entire year. I do not get any paid time off. It is hard to get hours in order to get full time which would offer more benefits such as paying for college courses, paid time off, maternity leave, and many more benefits that are pretty common.
