Mission driven, supportive culture and community focused. Established partnerships with other non-profits to better serve the community. Was always more than a gym and a swim. Created opportunities for member volunteerism.
You wear many hats at the Y
Working for the YMCA has been very rewarding working with the homeless population and I enjoy the nature of my work. However the management is complete trash. Never have I ever worked for a company that is filled with so much nepotism and favoritism. A lot of the new team is friends with the current director and she’s not the nicest person either. They lack communication skills, emails go unanswered and when you attempt to talk to some members of leadership you are really dismissed like it’s not their problem. The Shift leads are unprofessional and rude. They curse & yell at the residents and workers. They don’t have the compassion needed to properly work the job and they gossip about everybody from the residents to the staff. The building is not properly cleaned and they don’t really have everything the residents need at certain shelters. I’m glad I don’t work there anymore but I am grateful for the experience to help the homeless.
Helping the homeless
Leadership is trash, facilities are dirty, and no opportunity to grow
I’ve been with the YMCA Head Start for a year And a Half. Their expectations of you were higher than the pay! Too much favoritism in the workplace. Because of COVID 19, I was forced to quit my job. The YMCA HeadStart did not have Alternatives for me. It's just sad that a huge company ”Headstart.” we lack a lot of professionalism in the workplace. Then talk about not able to get unemployment! They don't give unemployment!!!!
Working With Kids
I was with the YMCA of Central Ohio for 7 years. I loved the community focus of the organization and the welcoming environment they fostered for members. I also liked the amount of professional development training I received. However, a major point of frustration was low pay and high staff turnover, which often left employees “overworked and underpaid”. In my 7 years I was able to advance positions twice, and I gained a lot of valuable work experience, but even after graduating college and having a supervisory role, my pay was not what it needed to be for me to live comfortably. The fact that I was making far less than peers with similar credentials and years of experience at other companies was a huge part of my decision to seek employment elsewhere. The YMCA remains a part of my roots and I am forever grateful for the lessons learned while employed there, but I think the organization mostly benefits college students, part-time employees, and those in upper management positions.
I cannot speak for the YMCA nationwide, but the YMCA of Central Ohio was horrendously mismanaged when I worked for them as a lifeguard. The downtown office and branch managers would consistently overwork their aquatics directors and treat them with a shameful lack of respect. At my branch alone, they had to replace four aquatics directors in four years, due to untenable workplace politics. The downtown office and branch managers would subject their aquatics directors, and the lifeguards and swim instructors under them, to their volatile whims, placing an incredible amount of stress on everyone who worked in aquatics. I had worked at other pools before the YMCA, and at none of them were the employees so overworked for so little benefit. We never had enough lifeguards on staff, especially during the busy summer season, wherein the lifeguards would run themselves ragged just to keep the facilities open. Because our branches were so understaffed, we were given an unmanageable amount of maintenance and management duties, in addition to our primary role as lifeguards--all for a meagre $8.25 an hour. Our branch manager would not let any of us work more than forty hours, even though we desperately needed more lifeguards during the busiest shifts, because we were not allowed to be paid overtime. Then, when everything was engulfed in absolute chaos, the entire aquatics department, director and all, would bear the blame for being "inefficient." Even if you end up working for the same terrible wages, you can find plenty of other places in Central Ohio who are better managed, and - több...
Team is amazing and very open to help with all and any questions. Population is very hard to manage. Tasks change day to day but purpose of organization and main priority is to maintain housing and sustain housing of those within the housing programs of the YMCA
Flexible hours, Management help
Little training, Stress with population, High case loads, Mental Health of employee, Safety
I worked as a site director for an after school and before school program in Columbus City Schools. It was VERY tough. I didn't have enough support from staff and it was an extremely long, split-scheduled day. Pay is just decent. My managers cared about me and I really cared for the kids, but it wasn't enough for me to stay.
I believe it’s a good company and very family oriented and just a nice place for the community to connect to
As I said before it was just very community based and just a warming place for all families no matter what race, ethnicity or background to come and work out , swim or do any other activity they wanted to partake in.
I’ve been working at the Y for almost a year. Overall, this experience has been a impactful journey. The facilites goal is to make the guest happy and I think they have reached many’s expectations. I learned how to deal with situations independently. They certify lifeguards and the awesome thing is that everything is paid for.
Please make sure you get a good vibe with directors because the poor communication and lack of professionalism took over being in a satisfying workplace. I have never had to go to two different people about one day off because the two directors at ymca could not collab about their staff members. Make sure everything is written on paper and signed or it will backlash. I would not reconvene working at the ymca affiliates with Kipp or wit
A mixed bag of easy and hard shifts. Management supports staff and encourages growth in skills and knowledge! Opportunities to grow within organization. Communication, team-work and authentic relationships are a must when looking to create an impact in the Y community.
However the management team does not have mental or emotional ties to employees with permeate illnesses that can cause time at work. I would not go back due to how I was treated while employed, My suggestions did not matter at all.
