"Great summer job"

Former Employee - Summer Camp Counselor
Former Employee - Summer Camp Counselor
Recommends

I worked at YMCA part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Awesome coworkers, great kids, ok pay

Cons

Being outside, slightly incompetent team leads (less education than me) so they didn't have good management skills.

Advice to Management

Become more involved in your programs, pay attention to what your employees are telling you. We work with the kids and parents on a ground level.
