Former Employee - Pre-School Teacher in Missoula, MT

I worked at YMCA full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Connections with the local community and a variety of services offered, free YMCA membership

Cons

Very low pay, no benefits besides the Y gym membership, high turn over

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In order to decrease employee turn over and improve the Y services, particularly in the daycare business, you need to increase pay and provide more professional development

    I worked at YMCA as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    it is hard to complain about working outside in the boundary waters taking kids on canoe trips. Especially when you work with your best friends!

    Cons

    This was a seasonal job. The pay is lousy, but the perks are great. There is not much room for advancement. Don't let it stop you if you have the time on your summer off!
