Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at YMCA part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Members, they are so friendly and nice, easy to network with. Co-workers, the part time workers are awesome to work with.

Cons

Management sucks, they are lazy and only care about themselves. The directors only care about their own success and will do anything to make themselves look better or make others look worse. The pay also kind of sucks.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to your staff. Be leaders and set an example. Appreciate your workers because without them you guys would be lost and shut down, they do so much for you guys and the Y.

    Pros

    Super friendly people who are empowered by a solid mission. From a high schooler to a seasoned employee, the YMCA is a very solid company.

    Cons

    The nature of the business limits it to low profits so salaries are not the best, but the success they have had allows them to provide a lot of other things.

    Advice to Management

    Make a program to train the young kids that come through. Possibly a mentor program that they can get involved in.

    Cons

    Extremely Limited Ability To be Promoted Low Starting Pay

    Advice to Management

    Pay your front desk staff better and you will be able to demand a higher quality employee. Higher quality employees lead to better sales. Better sales lead to making it affordable to pay for those higher quality employees. Everybody ends up happy.
