    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YMCA in March 2016.

    Interview

    20 minutes I got a tour spoke with 2 people landed the job. They asked a couple questions and we're very good at what they do. Plenty of training that needs to be done as well for certification. They have benefits for full time employees and a great retirement plan.
