Average Experience
A challenging but rewarding job working with children. Like most, it is vastly undervalued and underpaid. Often need to work unpaid overtime to make ends meet.

I loved the kids and my co-workers. Everyone is quite supportive of each other.There is a lot of work outside of work hours that you don’t get compensated for though and pay sucks :(

I have worked for the Y for almost 10 years. They don’t value their employees. They are desperate for staff so they’ll hire anyone just to fill the room with a body…which only makes our jobs more difficult. The work-life balance is awful, I go home every day beaten up, exhausted and stressed. There is TOO MUCH to do in a day between caring for the children, daily entries for play experiences, program planning, administrative tasks, documentation writing, no enhanced staffing for children with special needs…the pay is not enough for the scope of our work. Other centres are paying more money for the job with less day to day stress. No cost of living increases…no pay increase for the staff that worked through multiple lockdowns and suffered mentally and physically everyday during that time. Raises are a joke. I get paid nearly the same as an educator who is brand new to the YMCA after all these years. I have brought this all up to a supervisor and nothing has changed. Supervisors will throw staff under the bus to save face. Made to feel badly about taking time off. It’s all ridiculous.

Great Place, But Make Sure It’s Want You Want
Great work environment and people! Families and children are wonderful, you build steady relationships. Management is good, but I think there can be a bit of favouritism. Colleagues are great, you learn to work with people from diverse backgrounds.

Interview questions

They vengefully rescinded the interview opportunity last minute and made it a point to be very vile in their communication/email when they did so.

1970s/80s, screening questions prior to interview for a role at YMCA of Goderich: "Describe two competencies you have and why they would be strengths in this position.
