    Negative Outlook

    I worked at YWCA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was an easy job to get as college student, the work hours were pretty convenient if you had a full course load.

    Cons

    Might have just been the city that I was working at, but the higher ups had a tendency to prefer certain employees over others. The pay was also very little for what you were expected to do. They would randomly tell you that there were group meetings with maybe a day's notice and you would have to drop everything to be there otherwise they would consider firing you.
