    Former Employee - Summer Camp Counselor  in  Mill Creek, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Summer Camp Counselor in Mill Creek, WA (US)

    I worked at YMCA part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with children is extremely rewarding and presents unique experiences and challenges every day. They do a great job of hiring young, energetic counselors who are fun people to work with. Great summer job for high school or college students

    Cons

    The YMCA does not have the funding that many other organizations have for summer camp due to their dedication to including children from all types of backgrounds. The counselor to camper ratio is often at the legal maximum which can be stressful to manage especially when that includes children with disabilities.

    Former Employee - YMCA Lifeguard  in  Des Plaines, IL (US)
    Former Employee - YMCA Lifeguard in Des Plaines, IL (US)

    I worked at YMCA part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Co-workers, patrons where great and always nice to talk to. Management is very understanding.

    Cons

    Repeated days with hours on end of not having a break for more than 5 or 10 min a shift. Too short staffed during many shifts so ended up guarding for multiple hours on end with minimal breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more lifeguards, one guard up for more than an hour is Un-safe for the people in the water. People are not robots and need a break every so often in order to keep there vigilance at its best. Keep a rotating guard on the schedule during all times.
