I have been working at YMCA part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great way to get to know your community and provide a positive influence on good people.

Cons

Horrible hours, pay and communications by middle management. Our facility and department had some of the highest satisfaction ratings in the country. Management keeps leading us on with promises of promotions and our 3% yearly raise eleven months of the year and then when the time comes they say its not in the budget. Five years of lies and dishonest tactics by middle and upper management have left a very sour taste in my mouth and concerns with upper leadership in this organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest and communicate. There is a huge divide and abuse of power. We see them sitting and chatting all day while we do the work and they reap the benefits.

    Pros

    This is a great place to get introduced the the community. You leave work satisfied knowing you are doing something good for your community.

    Cons

    The pay is not great but when working for a non profit, you should be working for the cause not the money. Due to many people working here for the greater good of the community, you get to meet some wonderful individuals.

    Former Employee - Lifeguard in Ormond Beach, FL

    I worked at YMCA part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There were very few incidents at the pool which make the job really easy. There was usually enough staff that you got plenty of breaks and never had to spend too much time out in the sun

    Cons

    The facility is literally falling a part. The mangers aren't very helpful if you have questions (or they just aren't around at all)
