Substitute YPHD Recreation Program Leader (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 1 October 2018
The YMCA was a great opportunity and I had a lot of fun working there however, the pay is nearly minimum wage and you received no appreciation for the hard-work you do. Also, the majority of the staff at the site I was located were cliquey and when a conflict would arise, it would make the entire staff member group feel awkward and weird. I would not work for the YMCA again.
