School Teacher (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 31 January 2018
The YMCA is a great place for members to meet and connect with people within the same community. It is great seeing people in the facility. There could be some Improvements to how they treat the staff.
School Coordinator (Former Employee) – Martensville, SK – 29 January 2018
I moved to Martensville with the understanding that I would have a permanent job here. About three months into the job I got a call saying that I would have to relocate or would be fired. This has caused major stress in my life.
Program Instructor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 January 2018
While I was there, turnover was very high. Staff were written up against PR policy and when it was questioned, new policies would be conveniently added to the HR handbook. Management frequently gossiped and encouraged "tattling" amongst frontline employees, creating a toxic work environment. Several employees on stress leave were bullied into quitting. There was no one to report the behavior to, as HR staff was complicit. CEO and higher management only cares about the bottom line, not the results of a program -- staff recently received a 3 month pay cut of 30% with no warning. This is a place to work if you need a stepping stone into a real non-profit career.

Preschool Child and Youth Care Instructor (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 January 2018
Firstly the people you work with are amazing, however it feels like a very big company and sometimes you dont feel connected with management. Highly recommended if you want experience in that sort of field
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 19 January 2018
The YMCA of guelph does not value it's employees. They continually pay minimum wage to qualified and challenging positions and do not give pay raises to part time staff no matter how long they've worked there.
flexible hours and free gym membership
terrible pay and benefits, no room for growth, under valued by management
Vice President, Human Resources (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 January 2018
Excellent culture and work environment to support growth and development of employees. In a time of economic turmoil it is refreshing to work for an organization that is growing substantially and providing a good news story to the community
