I worked at YMCA part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The workout facility is AMAZING. The clients at the Nepean YMCA are awesome to workout with and learn from. Thats about it.

Cons

The management sucks. There is absolutely Zero advancement possibilities. Even if you do manage to advance, the pay-off is not worth it. There is no advertisement for personal trainers and there are no clients for trainers.

    I worked at YMCA part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's for a good cause and mission.
    The members are usually very friendly.
    Easy Uniform

    Cons

    Low pay
    Demanding Hours
    Ridiculous amounts of paperwork and procedures to keep track of in the midst of numerous activities (checking out equipment, answering phones, filing, complex data information, keeping an eye on members checking in...).
    Some members can be very rude and offensive
    Little to no opportunity for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and initiate trainings and advocacy measures that help lower level worker feel like less of a worker bee/pawn. Please hold up you end of the job and support entry level employees - when you don't, it all falls on them to manage complaints, operations, etc
