Life guard (Former Employee), Oakville, ONJuly 15, 2015
Pros: free food, friends, skills, and exercise.
Cons: makes one really tired after a day at work
I would instruct a class for 45 minutes, and take a 15 minute break, for 4-6 hours.
I learn to lead, teach, and communicate.
The Y is very organized, always something to do, but never too much for one person, we worked as a team.
Co-workers are harder workers who take responsibility and pride of what they do.
Hardest part of the job was trying to teach a toddler who is scared of water to put his/her face into the water.
Every bit of this job is enjoyable.

SUPERVISOR/ TEAMLEADER SACC (Former Employee), Oakville, ONSeptember 6, 2012
Pros: benefits and team bonding
Cons: split shift
Working for the YMCA was truly an experience. I have worked for both Oakville and Burlington YMCA. Learning about children development and how to communicate and structure a specific program for their needs has been overall fulfilling.

I have worked specifically one on one with special needs children. I had a child with Autism and was their care giver aside from the YMCA. I knew the childs specific needs and where generally the child was on the spectrum. Not only did I learn through my personal experience, but also Halton provided work-shops related to the topics a childcare worker can use to better themselves.

I will take my experience along with me in this journey of life.

Child Care Coordinator/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Oakville, ONAugust 17, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: split shifts
Was responsible for 15 to 200 children. Oversaw 4-50 staff depending on the month. Responsible for planning daily activities, shopping, budgeting, planning group trips and organizing events.
The hardest part of the job was working a split shift.
The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that i was guiding cildren and teaching children.
My co workers were amazing people who loved the job just as much as i did.
