My colleagues and immediate supervisors were always very supportive, but their supervisors and their supervisors' supervisors were completely unsupportive. There was a big culture of being very into the Y and its mission, which was great, but without any follow-through about *why* we should be into the Y. In meetings we were always encouraged to avail ourselves of professional development. However, when it came to actually offering these opportunities or talking about it one-on-one, it seemed clear that higher-ups weren't interested in taking any action - budgets take precedence over people, after all.I think the clearest sign I wasn't valued was when our jobs were reclassified from full-time to part-time (depriving us of both pay and benefits), around the same time they announced a shiny new building and center in downtown Kansas City.
Kids were great to work with, had supportive colleagues
Unsupportive leadership, no opportunities for growth
Great fit for anyone wanting to truly make a difference in their community. Its the best job i have ever had.
It's an extended family. I love going to work because I love the members. I feel I do make a difference each and every day. The longer you are there the more you understand the people. Each YMCA is specifically placed to fill the need of the community.
The YMCA has great core values and advocates for them however it has taken a lot of persistence to create beneficial change for employees pf youth development, such as better wages, increased appreciation and acknowlegdement. The health insurance is phenomenal in coverage including transgender needs and mental health, but can ne hard to maintain year round with seasonal postions on YDS. overall, a good place to work, just be an advocste for yourself and you persistent in requests.
The YMCA of Greater Kansas City is a place where you have the opportunity to grow initially and offers opportunity for initial advancement. Unfortunately, upper management is not great at communication and often makes reactive decisions instead of proactive decisions. Upper management is not very receptive to feedback or new ideas either which makes innovation difficult. That being said, the workplace culture is good at certain levels and depends greatly on your immediate supervisor and work location. The hardest part of my job was to completely staff the department I was overseeing. It made it increasingly difficult to have work-life balance and to offer quality programming to participants. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing both employees and program participants progress in skills and confidence. This was by far the most rewarding part of my job.
The YMCA has been such a disappointment! There is no room for growth, no collaboration, so many ridiculous procedures that are not efficient or necessary. While you have a million and one things to accomplish, you have your leadership and management all in the office not doing a thing and having a good ol’ time while on Salary. This work place is not professional at all!!! If you are looking for a stable income this is not the job for you! This job is fun, but holidays, school breaks and snow days are the worst because they will not let you work from home even though you are able to work from home on regular days and you still have many task to accomplish. They won’t even let you come into the office to get your work done which is ridiculous.
I am a busy person; because of this, many of the typical jobs to supplement my income are not an option for me. Due to this, lifeguarding provided me with a way to work odd hours while being able to do other activities and jobs within my everyday lifestyle. After being at the facility for some time, I noticed odd changes in the standard of management. Depending on the time of day, I found that employees are expected to uphold different standards or lack thereof. Although slightly bothersome, this inconsistency did not affect my work; however, I did feel as though it created tensions between employees and supervisors as a result.
The YMCA is a wonderful organization with a mission that is designed for the betterment of community. Excellent support to any community. I enjoyed the flexibility and the fact that each day looked different based on the needs of the communities we served. The hardest part of the job was being able to meet all of the needs. There is a critical need, for Y’s to be successful, to fundraise so there is an opportunity for all to be engaged. The most enjoyable part is being able to strategize and collaborate with other businesses and organizations to provide support or accomplish goals.
This job is okay for high school / college students . This isn’t a career job . You will deal with disrespectful children , the supervisor will gossip about the employees and the children. The hours aren’t good either.
Work around your schedule
Work three to four hours a week .
The YMCA of Greater Kansas City, just like any other job, has its ups and downs. The supervisors are helpful and friendly, but sometimes the work asked of you is demanding.
Flexible Hours, Free Gym Access, Free Training
Long Shifts, Often Work Alone, Patrons Can be Mean
I love the kids. But the job didn't pay enough for all the things that had to be done. I work harder then the lead teachers. The management where I work was unprofessional. The manager didn't really care about her staff. She didn't handle the care of things that teachers needed. They had teachers that they favored. The ones that didn't kiss their behinds they treated them poorly.
