Assistant Camp Counselor (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – October 11, 2017
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.

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – November 17, 2017
It is a great place to work however, if you work hard at your job you don't get paid what you should. Hard to move up in sometimes when they tell you its possible. Great message and great people to work with all around.

Generally a good place to work with benefits. Varies from branch to branch and Directors. The WORK you do is awesome and benefits the community as a whole. You really have to value what you do to feel successful.
Site Director (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – November 16, 2017
Working at the YMCA of Austin was a stressful experience. Expecations for part time staff members in the childcare department were higher than necessary based on the work hours available. (Even in management positions, pay and hours were considered part time) Upper management at this location was difficult to speak with regarding job stress levels.

Childcare Team Lead (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – November 16, 2017
It was an awesome job to work with kids every day. Great learning experience for me as well as the kids. Got to teach them things like how water and oil don't mix. How gas pressure works and how to tap into their more creative side. Plus the managers there are all super awesome and nice. Sad to see that job go I really wish I didn't have to leave.
Site Coordinator (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – November 16, 2017
I loved working for the YMCA, I would never have left if I didn't have to move out of state. Management was always fair and encouraging, other employees enjoyed their jobs so the workplace was always fun and never really felt like work. I worked hard and management took notice, I was promoted after only being employed for a few months.
