Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – June 25, 2016
Not only did this put me in the position of a swimming pool lifeguard, but also opened up the way into the way a job works and what to expect and do. The management is very good and do a fantastic job of overseeing pool operations. The technicians and pool servicemen are very helpful with dealing with issues that may arise. Other lifeguards and pool attendants are generally okay, but are hit and miss. Some of them do not take their jobs seriously and slack off, while others will make a gloomy day more fun. Overall, it is a great job for high school and college students.
First-hand experience with service and different people
You get hot without an umbrella, some kids will ANNOY you.
Gate Guard (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – March 22, 2013
My typical day at work was to make sure the pool rules was enforced, and taking notes on the levels of chemicals that was in the pool. I learned that the pool has to have a certain amount of chlorine to kill off germs but not to much because, someone could have a very bad skin irritation to it. The management was barely around to watch over day to day task and operations. The hardest part of this job was sitting in the sun all day fighting heat exhaustion. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing kids have fun and families coming together.
Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 5, 2012
A typical Day at work is being Productive. I've learned that everyone a part of the team must work-hard to complete the objective. I managed my values of time by doing my job. The hardest part of the job was dragging cleaned pool covers while they were damp, by myself. What i enjoyed most about my job is actually getting a break.
