    I worked at YMCA part-time (more than 5 years)


    I love the YMCA and spent some of my best years there! With employment you will get a Free membership, flexible schedule, discounted programs, and a family environment.


    Very few full time opportunties. Pay is also low regardless of what you do. One will only begin to make a decent salary once they become a Branch Director or move to the association offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer full time positions for non-directors. Also, pay you employess what they are worth. This may be a not for profit but it't not volunteer. So many folk within this org give their life and for very little.
