Working at the YMCA was enjoyable by how it involved getting paid to play games with kids and doing fun activities. A problem with working at the YMCA was some of the excess regulation applied to the camp. The strict environment sometimes made things uncomfortable by how the leadership of the camp micromanaged how other employees do their job. Helping out with the kids was great, but some other employees made the experience unnecessarily stressful.
YMCA is a great organization and their number one priority is their people and kids. Their culture is phenomenal and the activities and services they provide at awesome. Overall a great comany with great values.
