I was employed at Nottingham city YMCA and I had to resign within 8 weeks due to bullying. A male staff member would harass me about my weight, shout in my face and pull nasty faces whilst others looked on laughing. It really was like being in the playground. The pay is awful for the amount of work asked of me. The manager conducted an investigation into a complaint without discussing it with the person whom had the complaint made about therefore increasing the toxic bullying culture. I went in a confident and c happy woman, I left in tatters and felt destroyed.
A typical day for me would be walking into the room we have set for child watch, and I would turn on the computer that the parents sign in their kids on. After that I would turn on the lights and walk into the kitchen area. Here I would get all of the toys that had been sanitized the previous night, and dry them off and put them into the area they belonged. After that I would walk around and pick up things that might not have been picked up and then wait for the parents and children to arrive.
