I didn't mind working here, but that was about it. It was the kind of place that didn't really require you to go above and beyond at your job, and didn't reward you if you did anyways. The aura of relaxation was non-existent, which was expected, but don't expect any breaks or to be able to loosen up unless you work a closing shift. The rotations are an hour to a 15 minute "break" which is really time at the desk doing chemicals or swim tests. If you have a ton of friends who work there, it's great, but I find a lot of people to be generally not serious about their jobs and luckluster on coworker relationships.
- I learned how to communicate better with others, how to start and sustain friendships, and how to be more confident with myself. - The hardest part of my job was the hot days and the early mornings. - Most enjoyable part of the day was seeing the smiles on the kids and counselors faces.
Working at the YMCA I really enjoyed working with the children,but I just felt the child care/after school program was not as important to me as it was to the Management and owners. I just didn’t feel like those kids and their needs were prioritized enough..
