Youth Program coordinator (Former Employee) – East Palo Alto, CA – July 6, 2012
Working for the YMCA was amazing until my director retired/mentor. Management was unorganized. It was very unhealthy for me to work at times because we for forbidden to help others when they needed it. We were asked to lie when I had to let go of people. Employees didn’t get along with other employees and management wouldn’t fix the problem therefore I stepped up to the plate and did. The best thing about me working at the YMCA, was that I took it upon myself to learn about the organization and I started to do my directors job when she would be out of the office. I also received 2 awards from the organization.
Membership Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – August 21, 2016
Horrible, toxic, and abusive work environment. All levels of management sanction bullying behaviour. Do not develop staff of any level. Do not follow core values of honesty, caring, respect, responsibility.
Early Childhood Educator (Former Employee) – Port Elgin, ON – July 20, 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed my time working for the YMCA and learned a lot from my time there. The staff is fantastic and constantly went beyond the typical job requirements to ensure each child benifited from the program each and every day.
Youth and Preschool Staff (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – July 18, 2016
Very family friendly. Staff are always welcoming, cheerful and helpful. The YMCA is a good way for families to spend time together and allow the whole family to socialize with others and make relationships.
Locker room attendant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – July 9, 2016
A typical workplace looked like me going around the gym folding the towels. I learned to be productive and taught me a lot about being organized. The management was good as they did their best to put me in good workplace with good conditions. My co-workers were really nice as well and taught me many things about job responsibilities. Overall I enjoyed working here and would recommend.
