Fast Paced, Rewarding work environmentI started at the YMCA right when they were moving over into the new building. I have been employed here now for just under a year and it has been the best experience to date. I have worked in multiple gyms and wellness centers and I have also owned my own small gym in the town I grew up in. I must say that opening the new location was a stressful time, with lots of deadlines and high paced intense situations. (However, that is bound to happen with any business start-up or building change-over). We had lot's of big changes and with big changes comes discomfort among both staff and members.
I have grown so much while working at the YMCA. I love my team and all of the wonderful members that I have the pleasure of spending time with on the daily! At first I found that it took people some time to transition and accept the drastic changes, and by all means that is totally understandable. I don't think we would have become the YMCA team we are today without having to overcome some obstacles. Just under a year later and we now have a strong crew of AMAZING staff and volunteers with around 9,000 active members!!
The YMCA offers its employees so many work related opportunities such as in house management/ admin courses, YMCA trips to Camp Chief Hector and "Hooked on the Y", national and international conferences, etc. I am very fortunate to have a job that invests in me - Our Directors truly want to see us succeed, and that truly means so much!
I am very excited for whats to come and for our community here at the YMCA to continue to grow! <3

Great place to provide a legacy and service to the communityI have had the pleasure and stress of opening the new location on the westside of lethbridge. It has had many unforeseen challenges as it is the 3rd largest YMCA in north america and located in a small city.
The management and staff have grown and changed as the need for the community has changed. This has not always been received positively by some members or staff. BUT the overarching goal of helping and supporting the community has been clear since day one and continues to be so. No one person or entity will benefit solely from this location. It is and will remain to be the safest place for kids in this city, it will serve all members of ALL communities in Lethbridge.
That said it is still finding its legs - but assuredly with time and consistent support of the the staff and membership, this will be a flagship facility not only in Lethbridge, but Alberta as well.
Workplace culture is positive on the most part. As this facility is still growing some roles/positions are overworked while others are still finding a way to be utilized fully.
Amazing people working here currently.
Plans for the future to provide what the community needs.
Great charity and non-profit company.
A great place to share your passion for fitness, aquatics, or sport with the community.

Great Place to WorkThis is a great place to work. The strategic direction of the organization is impressive and the YMCA will be a preferred employer of Lethbridge for many years to come.
Honestly the best job I have hadYou're gonna read some reviews on here that are quite frank and honest. This place is not perfect, and opening our new facility was extremely stressful on everyone involved. Things have been changing constantly and not every change has been universally loved. However, the management team honestly does their best to conform to the overall standards of the YMCA and the individual needs of their employees. Its not easy, and not everyone will be happy. They do their absolute best to reach that goal though, and I have never been surrounded by such supportive people in my life.
