I have been working at YMCA

Pros

The staff and members are really friendly and when I go to work I feel like I am going to a second home. I am hardly ever treated disrespectfully by members and when I am I know I have the support of my managers and fellow staff members. I love to go to work because I feel like I am actively involved in our community and I love to have the opportunity to help others get healthier and find supportive relationships. I also love working at the Y because I never really get the feeling its a job, I love to come and work out on my off hours, and its just a great atmosphere to be a part of.

Cons

The only downside I have found at working at the Ymca is that it is difficult to find a schedule that is constantly compatible with my school demands and while the pay is good, there are also better paying jobs out there for college students.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think that the leadership at the Ymca would benefit from talking more one on one with staff members from the different branches because it has been my experience that there are staff members that have found ways to combat some of the challenges faced by the Executive directors and other directors that have been put into effect at their ymca but hasn't yet been picked up by any other branch because of the lack of communication.

    I worked at YMCA

    Pros

    The best reason to join YMCA is to feel good about doing something positive with you life. Helping kids grow up and showing them that there are good people who care.

    Cons

    Long hours, hard work and lots of sun. The kids tend to get upset and frustrated as the day goes on due to them being tired.
