I enjoy my shifts because I am working in an inclusive environment, alongside team players, and I love teaching gymnastics. I love the management team they are good to everyone from community members to employees, everyone feels welcomed and happy.
The Morgan Family YMCA gave me a lot of experience and helped me grow a little more. It was really fun in the beginning and it was nice to make new friends, but after being there for so long, you tend to see everyone's true colors. I recommend, if one chooses to work here, to be committed to actually showing up, be prepared when your other coworkers don't (it tends to make the job a little harder), stay in your own lane and try not to go above and beyond because it really does not matter to them, and don't stay there too long because it might just ruin you.
A typical day at work would include greeting students, taking attendance, organizing and setting up the pool deck and finally spending quality time teaching water safety while implementing the 3 core values. While working at the Y I developed a sense of confidence in organizing lessons, games, and communicating with parents. Lastly, the most enjoyable part of my job as a swim instructor would have to be watching my students learn how to swim on their own and being able to swim safely while having fun.
You feel very invited and accepted when you first join the team and throughout your time there. You get paid meetings and trainings, some meetings can be really fun. For example, for my departments meeting we played laser tag to have interaction with our coworkers and then we got down to the nitty gritty stuff after. You can always talk to your boss and they are usually very understanding and really help you feel reassured and help you have a sense of your belonging.
My time at the Y was ok, I was membership desk and i scanned members in, held valuables for members, and at times sold memberships. I learned during my time that Im good at customer service.
discount on membership
not really competitive wages, unless you are director of Department.
I am a manager at one of the Washington state locations and working at the YMCA has been one of the most miserable experiences I have had in a while. it's such a toxic environment my specific location has seen more turnover than any other location in its branch including full-time staff I would highly recommend not working here.
pros, free gym membership
If you weren't a part of management, you were treated very poorly. Extra hours were only available if another worker was out of town/needed to miss work and the managers were very sexist in who they chose to like. Diversity was encouraged in worker training but it was very obvious who advanced and who didn't. Overall, poor management and hours, and no understanding for school or other life priorities.
Easy hiring process
No breaks, bad people
Management understands work life balance if employees have kids or have life problems to take care of. Staff members are very talkative towards members and friendly.
Free programs for certain age groups
To much money for a one day entree fee
It was a stepping stone into something better. I learned a lot and the provided a lot of training and advancement but once you hit a certain spot you are pretty much there. but leadership ultimately had me wanting to leave.
free gym membership
Ymca promotes positivity and high goals for the children in the community. Which was one my absolute favorite things about being a counselor! We helped the children seek confidence within themselves.
Message; goal oriented
management turn over
Management believed in me when I excelled. When I struggled, I felt that management didn't support the way I needed. I was told at one point that I needed to either choose good mental health practices (ex: regular exercise) or working. This did not help me in the year I worked in a mid-level management position. I loved the company but my branch but the higher management made it miserable for me once they realized that I wasn't going to discipline my staff in the fashion they wanted. I learned so much as a director and I loved leading a team but in the end, I had to leave for my own personal health and well-being.
occasional free lunches, lots of training, great bonding experiences
short staffed, compensation for lower positions, insufficient continued training for mid-level directors
I experienced all the -ism during my volunteering with the ymca. There was zero disciplinary actions by the employees on students disrespecting adults due to skin color preferences, racial preferences, and height. Employees need to be train on diversity and stop influencing bad behavior!
Management and work ethics
its about making sure everyone feels included and safe and it was fun to interact with the kids and build relationships with them seeing them grow and become more comfortable and happy to be there.
not that many hours
A typical day involves another staff member and I prepping and opening the pool deck for members and staff for the rest of the day. People are always smiling and happy to come in, and especially when I smile and wish them a good morning. It is always a positive environment, and even when I am down. I know that if I smile it will be rewarding for myself and the member that come into the YMCA. I have learned that the YMCA is an important place. I have annually donated $120 because I believe in what the YMCA can do for children as well as adults. I have learned how to socialize with people and to make friends, but to also remain professional. I have learned the importance of my role in reflecting the professionalism and friendly environment of the YMCA. I have seen many changes in management with my time at the YMCA. I have seen both good management skills and bad management skills. Currently a management staff has just left the YMCA and the current management team is working hard to better improve and fill in what was missing all along. The culture and mission of the YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that help healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Core Values: Caring: to demonstrate a sincere concern for others, for their needs and well-being. The hardest part of my job is managing conflicts, however this does not happen all that often. There are many times where members also do not respect your authority because a majority of the time, staff members are younger than them. Over all I enjoy the work I do. I enjoy the people that look forward - több...
