I worked at YMCA part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good people, not a lot of hard work, you get to sit on your butt all day and just watch people swim.

Cons

You have to do nothing else but sit on your butt and watch people swim all day, water log, small kids screaming, It was very hard for me to get any hours.

Advice to Management

Management. keep up the good work. while I was there people were always kind and fair, on the point of being to nice to people that messed up.

    I worked at YMCA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The free gym membership was a great perk. I got to work and play with fun and cute children.

    Cons

    The director had too high of expectations of staff members for the money and would get rid of employee's easily instead of working with them. Another issues was that I was supposed to be working at just one school and they would pull me out and send me to different schools a lot which was not in the job description. I overall just felt like I was being treated very poorly and not supported. The turnover was very high.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to make mistakes and encourage and reward them for doing their best. Be supportive.
