pool lifeguard (Current Employee) –  gold coast - marine preFebruary 17, 2013
Supervising water safety to the general public, performing fist aid , and assisting and directing public to swim areas , water testing 5 times a day.

I work with 16 co workers who are all helpful and we have fun, the hardest part of the role is some labouring and moving 50 meter pool into a 25 meter pool.

The most fun is jumping in the water after a shift.

I have learned to be polite and considerate to the public.
Pros
good hours
Cons
standing in the rain at times
