    Current Employee - Swim Instructor in Port Huron, MI

    I have been working at YMCA part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Staff bonds together like a family and there is a great job satisfaction with teaching children how to preform an essential lifeskill (swimming in my case.) This is especially true when working with a disadvantaged or special needs child, to see the way their face lights up when they know they are mastering a specific skill, especially after a long period of learning.

    Cons

    Management sometimes does not understand how a certain department is run and therefore will issue decisions that are unreasonable but have to be complied with anyways. This usually causes a host of problems that the department takes the heat for before the issue is resolved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the department heads are truly in charge and let them manage their own areas of expertise. Positive interaction with employees also goes a long way, because most employees are younger and intimidated by big management executives, so smiles and encouragement helps break down barriers!
