    I have been working at YMCA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free Gym membership
    Make a difference in the community
    Retirement is amazing
    Free programs for your family and children (if you have them)

    Cons

    Poor upper management does not have a sense of how to grow itself.
    Low salary with high demands.
    Expected to do above and beyond with little and nothing.
    No recognition.
    Cuts hours for great part time employees to save a dollar. management reassigns duties to already overworked full time directors

    Advice to Management

    Open eyes to what is actually going on within your communities. Your employees are your community as well, take care of them too.

    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.
