Positive Outlook

I have been working at YMCA part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I love the people I work with and work for. It also give me the opportunity to give back to a community that I have been a part of for close to 20 years, while staying fit and healthy at the same time. Our community has needed a facility like this for a long time and I'm just happy to be a part of it now that it's here.

Cons

The pay could be better. I have been here for almost 3 years, and only saw one raise and that's because I took on more responsibility. The increases across the board were menial at best, almost an insult to the work we do. We were promised increases within the first 90 days of employ and were deferred by the board of directors and it seems we are always deferred when it comes time for our annual reviews and increases.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees a decent wage and reward those that have remained loyal from the start.

    You will not receive a raise in this job. period. You will be asked to do more than what you need to do and will not be compensated for it.
