Assistant Camp Counselor in Ashburn, VA
on October 11, 2017
Ymca
I was able to fit into the culture at the YMCA well. The managers were nice and very understanding. If a coworker had any problem they were able to take time out of their day to answer questions and concerns.

Training clients I have the support and resources of staff behind me. Staff make it possible for me to succeed in my profession. The preceding combined with the trust and respect of the members makes the Wilton YMCA a great working environment.
Lifeguard in Westerly, RI

I didn’t not get paid correctly for the last few months of my employment. Then after speaking to several higher-ups nothing changed, except for the fact that they stopped paying me at all. I was never told that i didn’t have a job, instead they took me off the schedule and then stopped sending me a schedule. Several months later i was asked if I was going to be teach swim lessons. Not only that but there is no benefits unless you can get a position as full time, we had a handful of full time employees at my branch. It was almost impossible to get a lunch break most days even if i worked 8 or more hours. Even if i didn’t get a lunch break it would show that i was clocked out for a half hour lunch break. Most co-workers said that they couldn’t get wait to be able to leave because it was so bad there. Not to mention the conditions of the air in the pools myself and several co-workers got sick with in a month of starting there because of the chemicals in the pool and lack of ventilation.

On my area they asked me "what would you do if" questions mostly of the time. Question about how to get some exercises done, for my position especially. They also asked me if I am really interested working on this position, not just to work but If I love the positiont. Question of why I chose the Y.
