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 enjoyed working for the YMCA in our home town. It was a great atmosphere for the locals and for the employees there. This YMCA had lots of options for employment, so you are likely to find something you enjoy.
Day Camp Counselor (Volt alkalmazott) – Warsaw, NY – 2018, március 21.
I got to spend all day with the kids. I got to play games and come up with crafts to do. Management could be questionable at times but it wasn't bad. We were all on a learning curve there. But it was the best job in the whole world. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

The kids that counselors supervise are not always acting on their best behavior but knowing that you are helping people in some way is rewarding. Managers there are very forgiving and easy to get along with but can be stern when it is needed. Many coworkers enjoy their job to a certain extent and are also easy going.
Lifeguard (Volt alkalmazott) – Glen Ellyn, IL – 2018, március 20.
The management was very poor and there was not a lot of communication between co-workers and their leaders or each other. Was only there for a short time because lack of work opportunities and not a lot of pay.
Program Coordinator (Volt alkalmazott) – PA – 2018, március 20.
The Corp level was very cutthroat and only cared about money and THEIR position not actually for the Y and the community. They don’t understand that the Y is in a low income town and did nothing to help the problem until the Y was in a hole. Completely clueless on how to run a nonprofit.
Program Coordinator (Volt alkalmazott) – Calgary, AB – 2018, március 20.
Long hard days with low pay. It is hard work and should be recognized as such with better pay and benefits. However, the feeling of belonging and community between staff was very strong. It was an amazing support system there.
