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

    Pros

    Free membership
    Made new friends
    If you want a part time job no career advancement it's great

    Cons

    No room for advancement without a four year degree it doesn't matter how awesome or dedicated you are to your job. Directors only get fulltime and you have to have a four year to be a director. Lack of leadership and direction your kind of just thrown out to the wolves. No pay raises ever! Turnover rate is high they don't fight for their amazing employees. If you wanted to be managed and not have any guidance or future this job is perfect!

    Advice to Management

    Be leaders not managers

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

    Pros

    Friendly people. Non-profit agency. Helpful bosses. Flexibility, if I need someone to sub for me, there is usually someone available. Nice community environment.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons. The worst thing I have to do is get recertified in CPR and First Aid and the training is very boring. I also have to complete an annual training about child abuse and neglect, but I do not work with children - only adults come to my classes.
