Mentally Tough Job with a Great Support System
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 November 2018
Honestly working with kids / parents / public is very stressful. It is demanding, you have to practice lots of conflict resolution and there is a large work load. But the people you work with, and the relationships you build with kids and parents make it so worth it. There is tons of opportunity for training, endless support from management and mistakes are viewed as learning opportunities.
I would 10/10 recommend this job. I love everything the YMCA stands for and the people you get to work along side with are so friendly and open.
But I would not recommend this job if you do not have tough skin, don't handle sudden change, constructive criticism or high emotions well (from adults and kids)
