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

    Pros

    You get a free membership to the Y as long as you work. All of the staff I’ve worked with has been a positive experience. If you enjoy working with kids, this is the perfect job!

    Cons

    Of course there are always going to be kids that will give you a hard time which can become frustrating, but your co workers will help. Sometimes when it’s only one person working it can be hectic, we stay within kid to adult ratio almost all the time but there are times you will be alone with a lot of kids.

    Advice to Management

    Some form of bonus incentives besides referring new people would be great. I don’t always feel like I’m appreciated as a staff member, even reaching out and letting us know we’re important would mean a lot.

  8. "Daycare"
