    I worked at YMCA part-time

    Pros

    Working with the public. Children are my favorite to work with and I enjoy it every day. Kids sometimes don't pay attention to rules though and they need to be reminded to be safe.

    Cons

    You work in a pool and have to pay attention and keep an eye out for possible drowning victims which would suck.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at YMCA (Pottstown, PA).

    Interview

    The ymca has a very informal interview process compared to other companies. I knew someone who worked there already which helped me to get in. Overall a low stress interview, although that was many years ago.
