I enjoyed work but management was all over the place. Getting a straight answer was difficult. Lots of power struggles. Center director was on a mission to get rid of staff that were persevered to be loyal to other coordinators.

Great workplace for young people to get experience while studying. Opportunities to get involved with the community. Ability to learn new departments including aquatics, health and wellness, childcare and middle management.

The overall KPI's were not realistic for the amount of time one had to achieve things. Unviable solutions were given to problems. In the end the Training Department was closed.

I've been employed at the Y for over a year now and I'm pleased to be working for a great company. The team culture is terrific. As always, there will be difficult days with student behaviour but the training and support is exceptional. I highly recommended the Y as an employer.

Worked at Portland YMCA and although started out to be an exciting newly created role after winning the local council tender for the second time, soon turned into the worst 8 years of my life. There is certainly no “community” at YMCA Portland.

As a support worker, I worked with disabled adults varying in age from early 30's to 60's. I would pick up clients and take them home on the bus. While at the Hove community centre we would engage in activities such as cooking, beading, singing and playing games. We went on several out of centre activities such as ten pin bowling, lunch at the Bay and visited a garden at another community centre. I enjoyed my role engaging in communication with the clients, serving them teas and coffees and generally trying to brighten up their day in a caring environment.

A typical day at work was always comfortable and made me feel like I was wanted in the work place. Jobs were divided among the workers so as to not overload one and leave another with nothing to do.
Pros
Discounts
