The team of staff is fun to work with and get to know. Have made some great friends. But sadly pay is not the best. Pay rate can barely cover much for you if Its your only job which sucks cause other YMCA's in the country pay much better.
Free membership, good coworkers
Listen the y does great things for certain communities but being an employee there was not a good experience. I made some of my best friends from my coworkers, but management and upper level management was terrible. I was a lifeguard for three years and did advance to a pool coordinator position for summer camp. My coworkers and I were obviously trained a lot more compared to other staff because of our multiple certifications we need, but we were paid the same. Continuously, from upper level management we were always “some of the most important people on the team“ but it did not feel like that because of our pay. I just always felt like management was always promising things they could not commit to, even if it was as simple as new equipment. One manager even asked a girl to drop out of high school so she could work full-time because they were so low staffed. This is not what you want out of your boss and representing a nonprofit company who is supposed to be doing the opposite of that. Overall, it’s not a bad place for a high school job or if you really want to climb up in the ranks, I just recommend leaving it better than you found.
A typical day at work was long but had some breaks. At the Y I learned that in not just this job but in all jobs you should keep the core values in place. Honesty, Responsibility. Respect. Care. Management was ok. I had a few problems and they weren't solved.
the flexible schedule
the other employees
The YMCA I was at may have been the worse one but it wasn't great. They were very unorganized and dirty, there were many scandals with employees dnd with clients. That being said there is allot of fun to be had and things to learn. these are community no for profits get ready to have a work family, as dysfunctional as it may be. I just feel as though a YMCA should not have the same issues as a budding small business but it does
Fun job, great role models
Unprofessional management, discrimination
a typical day at work would include watching more than 100 people in our pools at any given time giving swim tests to kids in a fast manner making sure none of our activities for the pool are disturbed. Making sure all of my guards are focused on the pool and ready for work. Running chemical tests to insure quality of water and chlorine. and lastly running drills on lifegaurds simulating an emergency in facility or pool with observation drills, dolls.
short breaks can be very stressful
This workplace largely focuses on giving its employees a great deal of flexibility. Unfortunately with that comes an inability to consider the work meaningful. It is enjoyable in certain parts but both relaxed and dull.
I do truly love working at the YMCA. It’s given me a sense of purpose and belonging to a community. I get to meet many people and be apart of their daily lives.
The YMCA is a good place to work. The facilities are very nice. Being a lifeguard is not a very difficult job, per se, but it is not a job you should consider if you don't want to care about your job. You should always be paying attention and doing the best you can do. The Y ensures you are upholding certain standards of professionalism/knowledge, which is important for a job like this.
A typical day at work included interacting with people and getting to know them personally. The management always listened when there was a problem. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able create lasting relationships with people.
