I have been working at YMCA

Pros

My program director boss is nice. Other employees are mean and do not care about the problems at the site.

Cons

West End YMCA has limited hours, low pay rates, and no benefits. Retirement program is forced on you when you work there more than 2 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give back our 10% cut and employees would be happier. No support from Program Director all the way up to the CEO

    I worked at YMCA

    Pros

    The children are the most important thing to this organization and this is a mutual belief that all employees that are hired hold with them. The hours are easy. Usually from 2PM to 6-6:30 PM. There is one meeting after work every month depending on the choice of the Supervisor at the site. There is also a training once a month that all employees must attend to.

    Cons

    If you would like to be promoted to site supervisor, the principal of the hiring campus must choose you. The program directors can not choose for them, regardless of how much the director knows that you are best fit for the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take the time to teach employees how to interact with misbehaving children. Most of the time when there was a misbehaving child, they would send them to me without attempting to fix the problem themselves.

    Passion for the work we do and the people.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity to grow from one position to the next. Miscommunication. Antiquated styles of working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you do not allow your star employees to grow, they will wither and leave.
