Assistant Camp Counselor (Volt alkalmazott) – Ashburn, VA – 2017, október 11.
I was able to fit into the culture at the YMCA well. The managers were nice and very understanding. If a coworker had any problem they were able to take time out of their day to answer questions and concerns.
I've worked at the YMCA since I was a teenager. I've seen the programs rise with the times, and fall short with the times. The awesome part of working there is that you can mix & match your shifts to coordinate with your personal schedule. Another upside is that the management can be really accommodating to your career goals, and even help you in some circumstances. The lack of advancement within the YMCA can really reinforce the idea that this is a temporary job. It's a shame, because some of the basic lifeguard staff or others could be excellent candidates for management roles that will make the organization better.
My coworkers were very friendly and teamwork was a huge part of the job. I loved working with the people and teaching little kids how to swim. I also loved how I could swim while no one was in the pool.

I love the YMCA and my job is easy, the patrons are great, and my coworkers are very helpful. The atmosphere over all is very chilled out and fun. It is not a hard place to work. I just want to do something different.
Free YMCA membership, includes classes like Zumba and yoga
Pay and work alone except for on weekends as a lifeguard
After School Site Coordinator (Volt alkalmazott) – Fort Worth, TX – 2018, október 16.
The job itself was enjoyable and the coworkers were very friendly with very few instances of drama. Management seemed a little harsh on occasion and sometimes made decisions without properly explaining the reasoning behind them to the staff.
Free single gym membership or discounted family membership.
Maintenance Director (Volt alkalmazott) – Lethbridge, AB – 2018, október 16.
A typical day was quite varied. It included maintenance of hot tub, pool, gym equipment, change rooms, bathrooms, floors, etc. Hardest part was probably getting up at 4:00 AM. Meeting and talking to clients made this a very enjoyable job.
Managers are terrible and not required to have any experience in the department they're in. My manager was working in aquatics and often worked a lifeguard position with no lifeguard training or experience. Refused to give us latex free anything even though they legally have to. Pool chemicals are always a mess, as is the pool. You get no breaks and are yelled at for using the bathroom.
This job is good for students needing extra money or part time. It’s laid back and very fun. You build bonds with children and coworkers and parents. You don’t get paid much because you don’t work many hours but it’s an easy job with wonderful experiences
great summer job for kids coming out of high school. organization was a little all over the place but good environment to work in a place were you get to be outside and engage in fun activities all day.
Director of a Health Fitness and Aquatics (Volt alkalmazott) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 2018, október 15.
I loved working in the non for profit sector. I was able to meet and connect with many people and social groups of all ages. The payscale was on the lower end for the job description, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
Great benefits, training opportunities and contacts

The YMCA was such a great place to work. I worked there for 6 years and enjoyed every minute of it. I worked with some really amazing people who helped me grow at the company. I thank all of them for what they did for me.

The people are great to work with. A lot of them are moms and highschoolers, but the camp counselors are mostly college students. You get a lot of opportunities to work year round because of events, holiday parties, and summer camp, aside from your main job there. Flexible hours.
