People were very friendly, not that fake happy personality that some people feel forced to express at work
Camp Counselor (Former Employee), Encinitas, CAApril 17, 2014
Pros: a lot of overtime, working with kids who look up to you
Cons: nothing
Loved coming to work despite traffic. Kids were awesome and really enjoyed all the places we took them. Managers really wanted to know you and it felt like a family. Would work there again.
Hardest part was dealing with the rich snobby kids or those that wanted all the attention.
Co-workers were fun, but some took it wayyyy too seriously- Its just camp!

Very active, constant interaction with all types of people
Lifeguard (Current Employee), Rochester, NYApril 17, 2014
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: very short breaks
The YMCA is always active, there are people constantly coming in and out of the building. While working here I learned how to interact and handle situations concerning myself and others. My co-workers are very friendly and out-going. The hardest part of the job is constantly actively scanning the pool especially when no one is hardly in the pool. The – more... most enjoyable part is knowing that by guarding the pool I am contributing to positive and safe environment for people to have family or individual time. – less

Great Childcare Experience
Youth Development Leader- Site Director (Current Employee), Lake HoustonApril 17, 2014
If you love working with kids, this is the job for you. It comes with all the rewards and trials of mentoring young students but all the benefits of babysitting. The best part is being able to see the kids grow and how much they learn; being a part of this learning process is the most rewarding part. Managing a large group of children can be complicated – more... but worth it. – less
