    I have been working at YMCA part-time

    Pros

    I love working at the YMCA! The organization truly cares about its members and employees and I wouldn't want to work anywhere else. Staff members get a free membership, or half off a family membership. Instead of playing $82/month, we only pay $41!

    Cons

    There are none! Great place to be and I look forward to going to work!
