    Pros

    Everyone you work with is so passionate about what they do! Great work place environment and wonderful coworkers. The listen first attitude of everyone makes you feel cared about and appreciated.

    Cons

    Due to non profit wages there is consistent employee turnover which can make things challenging. If you do not have a spouse or children the added benefits are not as substantial.

    Swim Teacher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at YMCA (Charlotte, NC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Athletically Strenuous Swim assessment followed by a formal interviewing process with a friendly interviewer in an arguably informal setting. With lots of scenario questions and learning about the facility itself.
