While working there my my supervisor was replaced like 3 times. The executive director at the location hovers around everyone whispering to himself and is never pleased with anything you do. It’s a toxic culture where there the employees hours are cut while upper management plans a huge gala for themselves.
Easy job. 98% of the job, I was the only one in the building that was working. I worked the front desk. The manager was never around. When she was, she would hide or work out while on the clock. She's not not. When she is, it's fake. The bosses don't care at all.
-Very easy and quick interview process -Common for people to interact with leadership -Non-profit, busy, rewarding, a sense of community -Workplace culture more serious than silly/high-energy -Easy to make friends with peers and clientele -Learned to multi-task and do whatever it takes to get the job done
Break-room, friends, community, discount membership for yourself and household, no overnight hours, and healthy vibes.
Short breaks, the occasional crazy/mean customer, and non-stop laundry, not much room for growth, low-hiring budget
Working at the Y is good for someone just turn off in the job field it isn’t something that can truly pay the bills . The staff is very Well mannered and willing to help the patriots . I have nothing truly negative to say about Ymca
The YMCA is a very fun and active place to work. The people are friendly and provide a great space to learn more about your community and get engaged. My experience at the YMCA has been nothing but great.
Thought it was an amazing place to work with no politics like other Y associations but no. The HBB Y is nothing like others. (Most of the upper management wont know your name.) They will always take your supervisors word over yours and that is NOT a respectful work environment. Please be cautious wolves in sheep clothing.
Its a fun job, you interact with employee's and familiar members daily. Feels like a family more than it feels like a job. My position I attend to members and prospect members about membership inquiries, and any problems and assistance I can provide. Its a calm environment, rarely have customers who disrespect staff and its a job I would recommend to others.
I loved my time with the Y and the ability to be able to serve the community, However, the lack of hours was extremely hard to be able to support my family and resulted in my leaving to take on full time employment
I enjoyed my fellow co-workers and helping customers apply for memberships. I was allowed to bring my child into the care center, which helped a lot in expenses. Part time position was perfect for that time in my life. Very flexible with hours.
99% of the time working for YMCA is a “Good” place to work. Its clean, quiet, and generally church folk attend. Unfortunately at the location/ non corporate level you wont be breaking the bank with compensation either. Id say its good place for teens and older people to work but if you are the bread winner you might look elsewhere.
