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

    Pros

    The organization is well run and was a very positive experience for me. A large part of that was do to the quality of the management. The job was a good first job and provided me with responsibilities and learning experiences. There was also excellent flexibility which was a huge positive.

    Cons

    Since the YMCA is a nonprofit organization the pay is not very good (minimum wage).
