    I have been working at YMCA part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free gym membership and good working community. The staff are generally positive and it's nice to have free access to the facility.

    Cons

    The pay is definitely non-profit and overtime is heavily discouraged. There are also fewer opportunities for advancement in the organization

    Summer Camp Counselor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YMCA.

    Interview

    About a 45 minute interview. A lot of scenarios, describing strengths and weaknesses. Very long interview and you have to be prepared for different scenarios, many of the questions seemed the same only worded differently. I thought I bombed because I didn't know what inclusive meant lol, but I played it off. They want to know what your experiences are and how you will use those as a camp counsler.

    Interview Questions

    • What does inclusive mean to you?
      How are you socially responsible?
      What would you do if a child was picking on another child?
