I left my job for a number of reasons.. 1- hours.. i hate getting up at 5:00am to leave at 6:00am to get there at 6:30am, and then have to come back at 3:30pm.. they don't pay you enough, and if you want a raise, you need to take classes to do so and not to mention that after you take the classes, you commit to a year of working there or else you have to pay for the classes.. you never get what you want, they switch you around schools.. things are constantly changing, and 9/10 times you're working with rude people that only sit there and do nothing.. if i could go back in time, definitely wouldn't take this job!!

Was hired as an Assistant Site Supervisor for the "Y-Kids" Before/Aftercare Program, supposedly being "trained" by the Site Supervisor who called out from work countless times, took Leave-of-Absence, then returned, then took Leave-of-Absence again, due to his college schedule. Other staff continuously calling out, poor communication from management, leaving me several times alone with as many as 50 children (violation of state ratio), until my "S.O.S." alerts finally "woke them up" in sending me help to supervise the children. Constant behavior issues not being properly addressed, lack of supplies, including First Aide Kit. Basically, all management cared about was spending time at meetings to promote enrollment, while wasting tons of paper in advertising, and expecting staff to help run fundraisers at their given site location. Overcrowded small rooms for children during the daycare days when schools were closed. So sad that the Community YMCA of this particular NJ County could not live up to the wonderful YMCA reputation that has existed for so many decades; nor did they seem to care.

I found fraud and was fired for pointing it out. Manager plays games, sending invalid data then gets angry when reports were rerun for correct data. Shady top level managers.
