Great experience

Camp Counselor (Former Employee)
Limerick, PA (US)

I worked at YMCA as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsThe managers were very welcoming and excited to have new people. They also seem to really love their jobs. The customers are very pleasant, all families, and the facilities are beautiful. You also get a free membership during your employment and a discount membership for your family members.

ConsIn the child care dept, the parent is always right....which can be frustrating when dealing with a difficult child.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
