Don't work for the YMCA unless you are a high school student and want to make very little extra money.

Pros

Very little reasons to work for the YMCA. For me the main one was flexibility and little hours.

Cons

No communication whatsoever. Everyone is pretty much on their own. The only people they hire are unreliable 16- 18yr olds who call in sick all of the time. The facility is extremely old and even though the gentleman that works in maintenance does the best job he is given very little to work with as far as money for repair supplies and support. The management is a joke. All they do is sit around in the office talking on the phone which always appears to be personal calls and gossiping about the rest of the employees that are under them.

Advice to Management

COMMUNICATE!!!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Reduced membership,free daycare,reduced program fees.Honeslty that is it.

    Cons

    They have the worst pay and the worst raises less then $0.25 a year even with a college degree. They gave $0.17 raises. Never had any money in the budget for improvements for the facility.Did not care what the employee's had to say only what they members thought. Very low morale. No ladder to climb barely and if you do they will salary you at a low pay and then work you a million hours a week. Nothing at Christmas not even a card. I could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better. Your raises need to keep up with inflation. Show them more respect.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Free Membership. Really no other good reason.

    Cons

    Managers, especially in pool are far too stressed. Need to relax a little and not take little things so seriously. "Perception is 9/10 of the law." You know who you are. Good saying, not. Underpaid! Can easily go get paid much better at other heatlh clubs. Dont work here!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Advice to Management

    Dont play favorites.
