Youth Program coordinator (Former Employee) –  East Palo Alto, CA6 July 2012
Working for the YMCA was amazing until my director retired/mentor. Management was unorganized. It was very unhealthy for me to work at times because we for forbidden to help others when they needed it. We were asked to lie when I had to let go of people. Employees didn’t get along with other employees and management wouldn’t fix the problem therefore I stepped up to the plate and did. The best thing about me working at the YMCA, was that I took it upon myself to learn about the organization and I started to do my directors job when she would be out of the office. I also received 2 awards from the organization.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
schedule was different everyday

Never a dull moment

Working with children you can always look forward to having some fun. But working with the actual company can be tough sometimes because the outside communication (regarding work) is not as strong enough to ensure smooth flow between all employees.
