Value-based company, sometimes not so great with the people skills.

Pros

The association was very upstanding as a whole, and had the "appearance" of helping employees succeed. They follow the law to a fault.

Cons

They seemed to value their employees on the whole, but in reality, if you have a bad manager/supervisor, you're stuck. They were helpful/positive/supportive towards the minority employees, the tenured (read "live the YMCA culture"), and the exempt employees, but anyone else seemed to be viewed as "lesser."

Advice to Management

If you are going to be as upstanding and fair as you claim, every one of your employees should be valued equally (or why would you keep them?). Treating some better than others breeds dissent and just plain old lack of trust in your organization.

    Pros

    Free membership.
    Encouraging others to be healthy.
    Seeing same people, families, couples, etc.

    Cons

    Minimum wage with several positions in one

    Advice to Management

    Let MSRs just check-in/out and answer phones. Too many patrons left hanging because of lengthy phone calls involving sales, memberships, registrations, etc.
