    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Free membership (but only for yourself--if you want a spouse or kids on your membership, you have to pay the monthly difference). You also have to pay for your locker every month.

    Cons

    Terrible pay (minimum wage). No benefits. Stingy about breaks. We were actually told that under SC law, they are not required to give us breaks "but take one if you need one...just keep it short." Managers have very little experience or interpersonal skills. You get the sense that management doesn't care about anyone who works there.

    Advice to Management

    Quit talking about how "Christian" you are and throwing Bible verses around, if you're going to treat employees this way and pay them this badly.
