Terrific Employer

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I’m pleased to be working at the Y: the management and rostering team are sharp and compassionate and always interested in how they can do things better/feedback. As a casual, I receive regular shifts and great support in my work.

Pros

Training and support

Cons

Ordering new uniform takes time

Fun and Enjoyable workplace

I enjoy working at the YMCA as a part time job while complete my studies. I enjoyed creating a fun and safe place for children to grow and learn. I have worked on my time management skills and responsibility for looking after large amounts of children.

Pros

Worked 5hrs daily spent the rest of the afternoon helping and educating my own children.

Cons

Low earning income

Patrons make your day

Even a short shift for eg: 3 hours can seem longer. Management was confusing and communication was not good. The different sectors ie: gym, frontline, management etc were seperated communication wise.Communication and lack of recognition, good or bad was never in place. The patrons and fellow life guards were the most enjoyable part of the job and taking care of patrons needs and the team environment between life guards only.

Pros

Patrons and job satisfaction

Cons

The heated pool environment and the emotional toll from management

Happy times

I loved working for YMCA. A typical day in my field of work was to say hello to the receptionist, grab all the first aid gear, head out to the park, set up, radio in to reception and enjoy the weather and the people using the park. I learnt how to connect with all different types of people whether they're minors or older. Management was carried out well and productively. My co-workers were always really nice. There were no hard parts of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job is too hard to say, the whole job was too good to be true!

Enjoyable workplace and excellent staff

I enjoyed 99% of my shifts with the YMCA. The staff were amazing, and the work was always enjoyable. Management was very understanding and easy to get along with and work beside. Co-workers were always friendly and happy, making the job easy and enjoyable. Every day presented a new and enjoyable challenge. Even on hard days, the shifts seemed easy to complete. I worked hard and was able to see the results of my labour, and was always commended by management. Something that was rare in my previous workforce. But commendations were given across the board when needed, not just to me. I really enjoyed working there.

Pros

Staff

Cons

Weather

Workplace

Not what job I was expecting to do in life being a cleaner. The management don't listen to their workers when they report something. The hours are too long and I can't do cover shifts as people don't cover shifts for me

Cons

not enough time for a break

Mediocre workplace

I found the after school care program a fantastic program to work for, providing your management and other staff know what they are doing.

YMCA was a great place to work with flexible hours to suit our needs and a great opportunity for upskilling.

I learnt Accounts Payable / Receivable and Facility management during my time with YMCA. I enjoy the work I do and I enjoy the team I work with. The hardest part of this job was being told that my position is about to become redundant.

Pros

Free parking

Cons

Long drive to and from home
