Terrible bosses off-site, great community on site. Difficult job with minimal pay.
Day Camp Director (Former Employee) – Greater Toronto Area, ON – 3 August 2019
I worked with the YMCA for 6 summers and was fired without cause as a director, because someone higher up who did not experience my position or my site personally did not like me. I was never given any warnings (as required for such a dismissal) and was not given any reasoning for my dismissal, despite hearing things about me that were untrue. I was never spoken to about any alleged issues either. I was treated extremely unfairly all summer but was told to “deal with it” on multiple occasions. No one was ever able to give me a reason for my termination and I have yet to find out what I did wrong or if it was just unjustified.
Great work culture with staff directly at site
Horrible support from higher up staff who work outside of site, Not able to balance work life with outside of work because of long hours working outside, Minimum or close to minimum pay for job that requires lots of work.
