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

    Pros

    Great way to get to know your community and provide a positive influence on good people.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, pay and communications by middle management. Our facility and department had some of the highest satisfaction ratings in the country. Management keeps leading us on with promises of promotions and our 3% yearly raise eleven months of the year and then when the time comes they say its not in the budget. Five years of lies and dishonest tactics by middle and upper management have left a very sour taste in my mouth and concerns with upper leadership in this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and communicate. There is a huge divide and abuse of power. We see them sitting and chatting all day while we do the work and they reap the benefits.


  2. "Nice relaxed place to work, if you're not in it for the fun."

    Don't really make friends
    Boring to guard here
    Hour(s) shifts (not 15 or 30 minute rotations)
    Low pay compared to other lifeguarding jobs
