Varies from Location to Location
Lifeguard (Volt alkalmazott) – Alexandria, VA – 2017, október 4.
Having worked at various YMCA locations over the past few years, I can say that each one has its own quirks, its own pros, and its own cons. There has never been anything at any of the Y's I have worked out that I would say was absolutely horrible. The only negative for any of these locations is the lack of full-time opportunities for most departments outside of managerial staff. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement depending on what departments you work in, and whether you are willing to consider working in different departments when work is slow in others. the only real negative aside from this that I have encountered was at a YMCA summer camp where the camp director chose, after a couple of summers, to basically make it impossible for the lifeguards to have a set lunch period that was longer than 10 minutes. I do not blame the YMCA as an organization for that decision, as the other Y's that I have worked at have handled lunch breaks fine, as well as other employee issues. Overall, working for the Y has been a great experience, and one of the more dependable sources of employment I have been able to find over the years.
Friendly Attitude, Good Management
