I worked at YMCA

Pros

The kids you work with are wonderful. It is an experience of a lifetime. There is a lot of great workers around you who care for you and the job.

Cons

The pay is not very good. It is a good experience that I think all high school or college students should have but not something to make a career out of.

    I worked at YMCA as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    it is hard to complain about working outside in the boundary waters taking kids on canoe trips. Especially when you work with your best friends!

    Cons

    This was a seasonal job. The pay is lousy, but the perks are great. There is not much room for advancement. Don't let it stop you if you have the time on your summer off!
