Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working at YMCA opened up opportunities for me to learn basic skills such as patience, responsibility, problem solving, communication etc. By learning these skills I am able to apply them in different areas of jobs. I enjoyed going to work as there was an amazing atmosphere.

Pros

Amazing staff to work with

Cons

Volunteer work- no pay

Pretty good work

It's decent pay if you're a casual like i was, unfourtunantly i wasn't given enough time during the week to show my full potential as i was only rostered on once a fortnight. Lovely ladies to work with in the OSHC sector.

Lots of contract and volunteer workers

There were a lot of contract and volunteer workers for the YMCA WA when I worked for them on a project. They were in the process of improving how they engage with contract an volunteer workers to make them feel more of an employee. Not much in the way of advancement for employees though.

challenging and rewarding workplace

I am quite new to the work force, I have been a youth worker trainee for only a month, it is hard for me to be given an opportunity considering my lack of work experience. All I have is commitment and dedication to improve my life style and start developing a career. I do one day hope I can start work and really prove myself as I know I will be a great asset to any company because I am reliable, responsible, good problem solver, punctual and a quick learner. The team I have previously worked within was a good and trust worthy team that has shown great leadership to me. My most exciting part of the day would have to be, being able to work independently and showing my skills I have learnt so far.

Pros

The opportunity to work and weekend work

Cons

The experience

Working Overseas YMCA

Great opportunity to learn more about another culture.Organize young people to enjoy themselves in a safe manner is a worthwhile goal. Life guard work was rewarding as well as the concentration required was tiring.

Pros

enjoyed working in the leisure industry

Cons

early mornings late night..full on commitment

Great work place with a family environment

I have worked at the YMCA For 10 yrs. During this time I have been totally supported by management in all I do. I have been given countless opportunities in various roles. As well as being given many opportunities to further my education in the fields I have worked in.The best part of my jobs at this centre has been working with children. Educating them, watching them learn and grow in a happy health and fitness environment.

Pros

being able to work on my own fitness at work.
