The POCONO Family YMCA has hand down been the worst work environment I have ever endured. The management is disrespectful and even spiteful. The pay in little to nothing for the work that is expected. Management cares more about the quantity of members over the quality of customer service we were able to provide. They did not listen to staff feedback and encouraged us to quit if we did not agree with their decisions.
The teachers I worked with and aides were all very sweet. The children and parents ,very nice. The manager was nice at first but after my first week there she just criticized almost everything I did. I had lots of experience working in daycare and schools and being a teacher aide or assistant at those places I never worked in the kitchen actually doing dishes. Usually the teachers or aides would not do that at most they grab snacks for the children. Also I do not think the pay was fair. It would be a great job for someone just getting out of high school or a retired person but not someone who needs to pay bills.
