Employee Comments

  • Mar 21, 2015
    Current Employee in Chicago, Illinois

    Retirement contribution and PTO policy.

  • Mar 19, 2015
    Former Membership Director in San Antonio, Texas

    Benefits above average but once volunteer time, poor/no training, distasteful politics, and donations from employees heavily encouraged, almost not worth it.

  • Mar 28, 2015
    Former Senior Director in Everett, Washington State

    Best: Employer retirement contribution equivalent to 12% of wages.

    Worst: Commonly difficult to get coverage to use paid time off. Some unused hours may carry over, some may be applied to extended illness benefit, any remaining is taken back at the end of the year.

    Current Employee in Duluth, Minnesota

    Flexible schedule, but expensive insurance.

  • Mar 10, 2015
    Current YMCA Life Guard in Newport Beach, California

    Best: Pet insurance, not many employers offer pet insurance but the YMCA does, it is not the extensive but it is a start.

    Current Vice President in White Plains, New York State

    The company works hard to ensure employees have and take advantage of benefits.

    There is no benefit package if you are part time.

    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.

    Current Member Services in Easton, Maryland

    It's difficult to get time off because they're always understaffed. No health insurance to anyone that's not at least a director. No vacation or paid leave. The only great thing would be the free membership and program discounts.

    nothing with the part time
