    I worked at YMCA full-time


    Great leaders. They want you to grow. They help you with more training. They care about you and family. Great benefits, great retirement, free membership, low cost youth sports, swim lessons, childcares.


    Working in non-profits will never make you wealthy, you can't be in it for the money.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at YMCA.

    Interview Details

    Interview was unprofessional. Two interviewers were in the interview and one was texting the whole time while asking questions and the other one took a phone call and left the room, and never returned. It seemed like I never had their undivided attention from the start. They mainly asked behavioral questions and the interview did not last longer than 15 minutes. After the interview, they tell you that they will be in contact with you via ApplicantOne (their online application server) in less than 14 days. It took about a week to get a response from them. They told me they found another person for the job, although if they offered it to me I probably would not have taken it due to how unprofessional the interview went.
