I enjoyed working at the YMCA. You get to meet new people every day and gain experience in helping them with their fitness goals. Although the YMCA of Montgomery Village has been closed for several years now my experience there was rewarding.
Meeting new people on a daily basis
No job security
I appreciate the camaraderie between co - workers and the help management gave me to improve my skills. I worked at several YMCA's and caliber of management was quite varied, some of the managers played favorites too often.
Relaxed environment and positive support
lack of pay and benefits for part - time
Personal trainers need to have strong sales in order to meet monthly training quota, or you may run the risk of be written up. Management has made many changes to training and consultation space due to over programing in several departments.
flexible schedule, prior to COVID - retirement plan was great
PT employees-no health/dental ins, sales with monthly quota, unstable income
The Y is a great place to work it's about youth development healthy living and social responsibility. There are always advancement opportunities and you are given the tools and resources to achieve your goals.
Work-life balanceWork-life balance at YMCA is it's a average place to work. Not enough of diversity.Pay & benefitsThey are okOverallMy experience working at YMCA ,it was very interesting and there was no room to advance.
I had a lot of support from everyone I worked with. We had a sense of team. I was able to grow from a wellness coach to group exercise instructor to personal trainer.
Team, support, caring
Lower pay not full time
- A typical day at work was similar, but clients were different since there are so many clients coming in and out daily bases. - I've gained a lot of experience from the YMCA. -> Working with a blind client -> New working atmosphere (GYM) - There wasn't really any hardest part of the job because co-workers were operative and the working atmosphere was very relaxed.
I absolutely loved working at the YMCA. I am so upset that I cannot be there during this COVID-19 outbreak, however it is needed. The YMCA is a great place for people to come and unwind and or get a good workout in. The staff is very friendly.
The YMCA is a positive and community-centered place to work. They support their employees as well as members and provide avenues for health and community engagement. I am allowed to share creative ideas and given support to implement them if approved. My supervisors are supportive while also challenging - they encourage me to go the extra step for my clients and the environment of the brand. The most enjoyable part of my job is connecting with different members and clients daily, encouraging others to be healthy and strong. The toughest part of my job is managing the requirements of the association office while also working to deliver the best member experience possible.
Working at the YMCA offers a unique opportunity to interact with and develop relationships with a wide variety of people from different backgrounds and goals.
Fun place to work and interact with members. Diverse workforce and membership base. Culturally sensitive. Opportunities for advancement exist. You don't always hear from management about the vision or what's in the pipeline until it happens.
Upon being lucky enough to gain some career progression as a secondment position within the organisation I was then just demoted back to previous role with no consideration of gained experience
While my direct supervisor is fine, the YMCA in general is poorly managed to the point of near chaos. Administrative support is almost non existent, and communication between senior management and staff is embarrassingly bad. I've frequently had to learn about facility and program issues from my clients.
Not the best place to work if your a fitness professional or looking to advance your fitness knowledge. Spent more time cleaning than training clients. The facility has more emphasis on teaching classes as opposed to working with someone one on one. Management could be better, not to point fingers it just seemed like management cared more about their own agenda than promoting fitness and building a relationship with staff. With that being said its almost impossible to move up in the ymca as a whole.
cleaning, one of two shifts opening or closing, management
