Answered - Building Operator (Former Employee) - Calgary, AB

Report answer

The YMCA had some issues with their management and CEO during my time there. My emails were constantly going un-answered, people were confused when it came to who to report to and who was responsible for certain things. I left my job at the front desk as a Membership Sales & Services Rep when I went back to school in Halifax but would fill in on holidays when I was home, up until this summer. I left my Youth position when I was rejected after applying for another job within the Y that I was clearly more qualified for but new management awarded the job to someone close to them instead.
