    I worked at YMCA


    Salary (depending on your position)


    This is one of the most negative and backwards work environments I have ever worked. Their motto is : bring the C (Christ) back in the YMCA. Yet, the organization does not do anything unless it directly makes them look positive. The corporation is filled with people that will pray for you one minute and spit in your face the next. The main office feels like a morgue because the entire building is afraid of the CEO not thinking they are working. Where do I start? Bullying is a big issue at the Y of Central Florida. There is also a lack of respect for subordinate staff/no loyalty from management. I worked for their middle school programs and my boss sent one of my staff members who worked for the company 20 years and was going through chemotherapy completely out of her way to a new work site as an attempt to get her to quit. The staff member was also unable to drive. My same boss threatened to fire the whole staff at one of our middle school locations in Gotha, FL because they complained about a health issue at the school where the after school program was located after the principal placed the program in a filthy janitor's closet at the school. The Y didn't care because they wanted to remain in a close relationship with orange county public schools. There is also unfortunately subtle racism/homophobia that is allowed. My same boss was known to say not to hire black people, especially men because they don't have the right look. I was also accused of not dressing "professional" enough which was the first time I ever have been accused of that. It wouldn't have been terrible if I didn't have white counterparts dress the same way. Horrible corporation that is willing to self destruct if they do not like someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the position where your job affects the lives of others. There are plenty of other professions that what you do doesn't directly affect someone else's well being.
