Why did you leave your job at YMCA?

75 answers

  • Toxic environment, low salary, and disrespectful

  • Was demoted after working tirelessly for years. No longer had an incentive to stay once I saw my work was not appreciated. Took a job for less pay at a better and less toxic company.

  • I left because of Convid 19. Loved working the hours was available. Didn't want full time job.

  • Basically lack of compensation for my level of experience, degree, certifications. I will always be a Y lover! My life was formed at the Y and summer resident Y camp. I will continue to hope and pray the Y will evenly distribute compensation, not only stacking it at the top!

  • I worked for five years in the philanthropic department at the Y in Central MA. I was actually the longest staying employee my boss had, most left after two or three years. She was terrible to work for and talking to HR was useless as it's all one giant click of micro management and bullying. I know from first hand experience and from other employees who were and are bullied with no help from the staff who is supposed to be there for employees.

  • I left because I actually got let go and in a very unprofessional way . I felt very sick one night unfortunately because I ate something for dinner that didn't agree with me. And was up all night sick. I messaged my boss that morning early was supposed to be at work by 1p. I worked 1 to 6p. I told her I wasn't feeling well and unfortunately wouldn't be able to make it in. She messages me ok. That evening I get a message saying from her that she feels I am not the right fit there. Meanwhile I'm feeling so sick then to get fired. Wouldn't recommend working for the y of mount Vernon in the early learning.

  • For being there for a long time, they don’t treat you very well and fair. I was tired of the toxic life there and so I left and felt great about it

  • Be careful they will offer you “full time” when in reality it’s part time plus (working 39 hours). I was scheduled to work 9 hour days with an hour lunch break my first two months then they told me I’m only part time plus. That way the Y don’t have to full time benefits.

  • My boss had serious micromanagement issues and was awful to work with.

  • Toxic culture and racial microaggressions
