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

Pros

The friendly staff will make you feel comfortable in any environment. As a Camp counselor, I made memories that will last me a lifetime, and I am sure that many of my fellow counselors would agree.
The working environment in at Lake Burton in the north GA mountains felt both serene and beautiful.
Working as a counselor afforded me free meals and a place to sleep for 3 weeks in which I never had to spend a cent.

Cons

The pay was less than I would have preferred, but the experience was definitely worth it. Only come here if you aren't in a financial squeeze.

    I have been working at YMCA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Flexible work hours
    -Flexible job description
    -Nice People

    Cons

    -Promotion based on seniority not ability
    -Lack ingenuity and ability to see change
    -Work on Saturdays
    -You description can change on a whim and is often times not what you signed up for
    -As a coordinator you will often times be doing Director work with half the pay
    -No over time, if you work it they take it away from you and tell you that you should not have stayed over

    Advice to Management

    In order to make a more stable work environment with less turn over I would suggest firming up your job descriptions. I would also look into not over working your hourly employees for the pay in which you offer. Most of the time your hourly employees are the "work horses" of the branch and they always seem to have more than 40 hrs. worth of work. When they do go over 40, pay them their overtime and reward them.
