Ok first job.

I started with the Y when I was fairly young and didn’t know much about business, you could say I was naive. My only passion was teaching children to swim and I honestly loved teaching the kids. Management left much to be desired and often we were short staffed, meaning less staff to do more tasks; I would leave feeling: cold, exhausted and frustrated. Management constantly bullied staff that they didn’t like and I found the environment toxic and fake. Overall I was so much happier once I left and I would strongly encourage others to think twice before commencing employement.

Pros

None

Cons

Cold water, constantly sick, management don’t care

Communication between departments was a nightmare

Poor communication Dishonestly when told the hrs I would get I was only given 2 shifts of 2 hrs a week when I was promised 15hr. Not very supportive of staff and family needs
