Membership Experience Manager in Vancouver, BC
on 25 February 2020
Mission driven workplace with gritty workforce
This organization is filled with amazing humans who are underpaid and overworked, but continue fighting the good fight because they align with the Y's mission and values.

Don’t be fooled like so many before you
They will treat you the same way they treated the last person that held your role. You will learn all about minimum employment requirements, minimum health & safety requirements and what minimum management support looks and feels like. The hundreds of employees let go during the pandemic would suggest that the executive team take the YMCA’s nations leadership program as they clearly need a refresher on how to do the right thing, put people first or lead by example. They should have resigned due to their failure to lead and follow their own values but politically charged dictators rarely hold themselves accountable. There are so many other better places to work - keep looking.
Team Lead in Vancouver, BC

Stressful and management is never around for support
Worked at the Y for about 4 years as an ECE then worked my way up as a Team Lead. The first few years were fun and I met a few people I still keep in touch with. The first Supervisor I had was really supportive and my Manager at the time was too. Things started to fall apart and my Supervisor left, my Manager went on a leave and I left to go to another centre in a leadership role. It was exciting at first but management expects you to do EVERYTHING as a Team Lead - work on the floor, do the admin work, etc. Management only comes around when it's convenient for them. I barely received any support in my new role and became burnt out. Work-life balance was non-existent. Everyone I know that still works there is burnt out and unimpressed with management. So glad I left and now at a job that I don't lose sleep over.

I had a great experience with YMCA Childcare
I had to leave YMCA GV because the family and I need to relocate. If not, I would have stayed with them until retirement. As an Early Childhood Educator I felt valued, there were enough trainings for growth of your skills, pay is higher that average, I did not get burned out working 7 hours plus an hour break. YMCA GV child care work culture is encouraging. I hope the next YMCA I am going to is the same.

A fairly decent place to work
A friendly, safe, and positive environment. Overall I would recommend working for the Y. Good opportunities for advancement, benefits, and everyone is super nice.
