it is a fun place to work... there's always something going on and there is such a variety of jobs through the Y that if you don't particularly like one you can always move internally to another. Good work team atmosphere and great members around you everyday.
Fun people, flexible schedule, working with kids
odd hours (morning and evening), low pay for the task
- 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..
