Youth Leadership Advisor (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONOctober 10, 2013
Pros: connections
I thoroughly enjoyed m employment with the YMCA. The staff members and all around facility was warm and a very comfortable place to work. A lot of my self development happened there at a very young age and I will always remember the values it has taught me. Management could have been a little more in tuned with the involvement of their staff members – more... and how much the facility and its programs meant to them. Co-Workers proved to be closely knit in order to provide a hospitable work environment, like a family. The hardest part about the job was moving forward for new growth. there was never much room or opportunity and often times made employees feel held back and stuck. However what made it most enjoyable were the youth and other members that took part in our programs. To see a positive development and gain great feed back was more than pleasurable. – less
