Front Desk/ Membership Sales (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAOctober 20, 2014
Pros: free membership, kind members, free lunch sometimes
Cons: short staff, overbearing directors, low pay
I have great co-workers we all try and support one another and it feels like you are working with family. The members and children are all great and respectful for the most part and that's what I enjoy most is the people of the YMCA. The hardest part is finding someone to work because we are short staffed and really advancing in the company. The management – more... can be ok at times and then overbearing at other times. – less

Productive Gym with lots of activities
front desk (Current Employee), Wichita Falls, TXOctober 19, 2014
Pros: i love to work out now
Cons: mangement
I worked the morning shift and you typically get to know the regulars really well and you grow good relationships with some. I learned good customer service skills and all the membership policies. I felt management lacked good leadership skills though. I never had any conflict with any co-workers although none seem to really stay around very long. The – more... hardest thing has been feeling like they don't see what a good asset I am to them but I did enjoy finding my passion for working out now. – less
