Overall Reviews at YMCA
Swim Instructor | Concord, NH | Feb 24, 2020
Fun Place to Work, Slightly Underpays
This one of my first jobs and I still work. Have been here for over 10 years. Coworkers are great, job is rewarding. Started at $8/hr and haven't received much of a raise.

diversity in programs group ex and staff are great
pay could be a little better for the amount of things i do,
but all in all i wouldn't like to be in a corporate gym too many rules and standards to be y innovating

The YMCA is a community-focused organization which focuses on core values.
The membership and community at the YMCA is unique and wonderful. Differently-abled employees make the work environment joyful and exciting. Work/family balance is a priority and the staff work to support each other and create flexibility in the work schedule.

Good work environment, but not to live off of
I worked here towards the end of high school it was a great job and they worked well with my hours, but it is not very good financially and there is little job growth within the company.
Fitness Instructor | Harrisburg, NC | Feb 13, 2020
Non profit gym
Small gym in Harrisburg without a pool operating in the red. Not being very competible with local fitness businesses. All employees are part time. Only the Director is full time.

Helping others in the community
I do love my job at the YMCA. I love helping the community and families who cant afford to have a membership to our facility and programs for children. It is very hard for me to be looking elsewhere but unfortunately do to it being a non profit company the salary is just not where I can afford to live right now. Both my husband and I work full time jobs to keep a nice household for our 5 year old son.

The regular employees are what are the real back bone of the YMCA.
The CO and COO don’t seem to interested in the regular employees . The Directors and upper management only associate with other directors. And are all snobs. They expect you to go above and beyond what is expected but only pay minimum wage and it’s all part time so they don’t have to give you benefits.
Monitor | Roanoke, VA | Jan 20, 2020
actually a job i enjoyed
most days at the YMCA for me were spent atop a lifeguard chair. i would watch guests enter the pool areas (lap and family). i would watch over children and enforce the rules of the pool area. if needed i could administer CPR and First Aid. all the employees were mostly happy with smiles on their faces and warm welcomes to any and all who entered the areas.

Excellent place to work in. Diversity amongst staff is visible at all branches. There is a lot of support from supervisors to foster all staff members needs and growth. The workplace culture is positive and uplifting.
