its a nice place and fun to work. i had great co-workers. some days you deal with angry people, and other days with nice people. the hardest part of the job, it was just hard in winter when i had to catch a bus
The YMCA is an amazing company to work for as well as wonderful people that make the environment great. Management is understanding and willing to work with their employees under certain circumstances. I really do enjoy coming to my work family!
When it comes to the value of great employees another employee was chosen that stole, lied, stole time, including on work time, and when I proved it I lost my job as a manager, and a excellent fund raiser.
They value males or females, and walked me to the front door.
The top two managers at my location destroyed this facility, and they got rid of every manager or person that worked hard with great work ethics and cared really cared about the members and other employees.
Very poor organization and bad communication. No trust and bad talk behind everyone’s back. Way to much drama for a work place. Very poor hours and not a good work place. Working with the kids is the best part
The clients are very friendly and positive. But the employees are always trying to talk down on each other. Very disrespectful to the housekeepers. They would dirty an area that we just cleaned so we can go back to clean it again.
Although I loved working here, I feel like I was underpaid as a housekeeper mainly because I was the one that made sure the facility was spotless while others slacked at responsibilities. I feel that I was wrongfully terminated because I found my uncle dead and it traumatized me so I was having a mental break and they fired me 2 days after I found him dead.
After my interview, I couldn't wait to join the YMCA team. I was a housekeeper while I was there and it was hard work. I learned some handy things too! Great for someone looking to get away for a little while. Housing and food are free(ish). But the outdoors is what I thought was the best.
I absolutely loved working at Frost Valley YMCA. It was like being part of a really big family. Above average pay and benefits. I have since relocated to another state but will always have great memories and lifelong friendships.
The job was extremely fast paced, with an emphasis on getting everything done quickly. Depending on the supervisor, however, rooms were held to an unrealistic standard of detail and cleanliness (lampshades facing a certain direction, for example). Some managers were nice, but most were distant, abrupt, and sometimes rude. I was injured on the job but due to paperwork and filing, never received any compensation and still have medical bills. HR would not allow me to access my records or paperwork, including the claims I myself filled out hours earlier.
On-site housing and meals, diversity of coworkers
Work pace, managers, lack of compensation for disabilities and injuries, black mold, leaks, and other health hazards in the staff lodging, repeated use of unhealthy cleaning products
I didn’t work here long and I’m glad I left. I was never trained for my position just thrown into it. When I asked for specific duties I was blown off. My fellow coworker swore at me daily and management did nothing about the verbal abuse. Other coworker also never worked just hid the entire shift.
