    I worked at YMCA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Full time benefits okay... but for the price you pay, they better be.

    Cons

    Many people in managerial positions only care about their job, and will do anything to keep it, including blaming others for mistakes made. No raises for past 3 years, last raise was less than 2%. It seems that Managers don't care about the staff, paying them as little possible (minimum wage) and expecting them to do work way over their pay grade.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff more than minimum wage, when others in the same organization make over $200,000 a year, I think the organization can pay better than minimum wage for what is expected.

    I have been working at YMCA part-time

    Pros

    The people you work with are fun, and the members you meet are fun. Free gym membership

    Cons

    Very high turnover and burnout rate. Lots of favoritism, and very limited room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Treat you employees the way you would like to be treated
