I worked at YMCA full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They offer a very generous vacation package and a flexible work schedule. It is great the varied people you get to know working there.

Cons

Low pay, geared toward young and cheap labor. They tend to get rid of the older, experienced workers and hire young workers. This disrupts the programs they have which then tend to fail.

Advice to Management

Retain the experienced workers to keep your programs going strong.

    I have been working at YMCA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Members and atmosphere are great! Benefits are exceptional.

    Cons

    Many Hours (50+) a week and Low Pay. Received calls even on days off. No balance of work/personal life at all.

    Advice to Management

    Could be a good job if hours and pay were better. Also, too much micro management making it frustrating and draining. Needs to improve to keep good employees.

    I worked at YMCA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They do great things in the community and have some great programs like "Learn to Swim."

    Cons

    Low Pay
    Overworked
    Job Insecurity
    Cult Atmosphere
    Limited Advancement Opportunities
    Upper Management is "clickish"

    Advice to Management

    You seriously treat employees like children. The pay was atrocious. The hours and opportunity for advancement were incredibly sub par. Your mantra; "It's not about the income, it's about the outcome".. is a great brain washing tool you feel the need to incorporate because you know your salaries are not what they should be.
