Front Desk Staff

Front Desk Associate (Former Employee)
Dripping Springs, TX

I worked at YMCA part-time for more than a year

ProsGreat work environment and perfect for anyone who's looking for a part-time job. Working the front desk position will sharpen your people skills and teach you the importance of good customer service. The company really values their customers and promotes a positive atmosphere. Tasks mainly include checking in the guests, answering phones, selling memberships and promoting the YMCA programs.

ConsSome days can be very slow and you are required to stay sedentary at the desk. It makes your shift seem twice as long and all you can really do is busywork or paper-filing.

Advice to Senior ManagementI enjoyed the management and my only advice to them is to keep up the great work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
