High employee turnover is the direct result of poor management

Water Safety Instructor (Former Employee)
Greenfield, WI (US)

I worked at YMCA part-time for more than a year


Pros: Free access to gym-health club facitlities, many nice members and nice workers at the lowest levels of the organization. Sometimes, the kind of camaraderie… Cons: Even comparing to other non-profits, where crisis management, budget shortfalls and understaffing are the norm, the Y is notably poorly run. Towards the top,… Advice to Senior Management: Trying to emulate large profitable monopoly corporations is ill-advised. Get back in touch with your Christian roots (and this coming from a non-Christian!). … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
