They overwork you and use you and then cancel your job position and demand you be ok with it for small amounts of pay...If it wasn't for the children and families we served I would have left a long time ago.
Fast paced environment with daily multicultural interactions. Highest level of multi tasking skills are required for this position. Great social interaction required. Can be very challenging in dealing with language barriers. Very rewarding on a personal level.
I was there for five years and in that time I watched as poor management and funding has hit this place in the worst ways. Most people hate working here and that's why I left. You can only stay in a negative environment for so long.
This program was exceptional. I learned many different things about being a part of the workforce. The teachers and workers who work
there, are very informed and know that they are doing. This program lasted for a month and all together was 60 hours. I completed many different certificates during this time like workplace safety among other certificates.
When you can't trust the YMCA to keep their word...who can you trust? You have to put out your own money for some background checks. While waiting for results, they can give the job promised away under the auspices of they were on board first. Which means their word means nothing.
Great company/great customers. Enjoyed my time there. Loved the work and the people. I did a lot of work on my personal time to help them out. The customers really appreciated it. Spent special time with the elderly there and made some great friends. Job was great but left because I needed more money to provide for my family.
I worked there for two years and saw many full time employees fire/quick. The managment is poor and no idea on the direction the company needs to go. Though it is a easy place to meet new people and stay social with people coming and going every 20 minutes.
At the YMCA that I work they say they offer the best and it's not true is very expensive and they spend a lot of money on lunches and events between only the bosses and my peer only front desk does its job.I was doing 4 jobs in the same time and only pay me for one.
i experienced the YMCA as a place that centers on encourages people to discover the various gifts/ qualities they can bring into the employment sector. The work pace set at the office was conducive. The coordinators made sure the work place setting for the program was enlightening, professional and packed with opportunities that encourages intellectual growth.
