Athletic Center Manager (Former Employee) – Orland Park, IL – May 17, 2015
The owner is terrible. He treats his employees like absolute garbage and shows no sort of care to the safety of his employees or his members. Mold is growing all over the place, carpets are torn and pose a safety threat, and the turn over in this company is outrageous. Think very hard before working for a business that is so negative, an owner who doesn't care about you, but also have the ability to meet some great people. Most of the employees were great to work with they just eventually got sucked into the negative side of the company.
A single 30 min break in an 8 hour shift, negative owner, low pay for work performed
Woman Spa Attendant (Former Employee) – Orland Park, IL – May 2, 2015
I would typically clean the building, machines, and the woman's locker room. Guests would typically leave me alone unless the needed something, which I was happy to accommodate. My co workers were fun people, I got along with all of them. Management was the biggest issue of me deciding to leave. There was no communication which left the employees confused and irritated. Upper management did not show appreciation for his employees at all. The hardest part working here, was coming into work and feeling uneasy and pressured. The most enjoyable was working with amazing people and guests.
My expirence at the country club was okay. I expanded my knowledge on different cuisines. And learned a great variety of sauces. My co-workers was hard working and eager to get the job done. Management was the only lacking part of the country club, due to lack of communication.

Senior Lifeguard/ Swim Lesson Teacher (Former Employee) – Orland Park, IL – September 5, 2012
As senior lifeguard and swim lesson teacher (my last 2 summers working there), I was responsible for opening and closing pool duties, whether that be cleaning the outdoor bathroom to opening and closing all the gates as well as making sure my lifeguard staff was well hydrated and ready for work. I was responsible to make sure my lifeguards could perform a rescue whether it be necessary or not. I learned a lot about responsibility, for my co-workers along for the children and adults around the pool. I was the only one who could administer first-aid if someone was stung by a bee, or fell and scraped their knee. My co-workers were all excellent lifeguards and understood their job was very important. I worked with the managers daily, but also had a great deal of independence when it came to the pool area. The hardest part of the job was when severe weather would occur and getting everyone inside and to safety also was a challenge and was also very scary because that responsibility was put on me as the senior lifeguard on the pool deck. I really enjoyed teaching swim lessons to the younger kids who came to the pool because I was able to make a connection with them and with their parents. To this day, I still talk to some of the parents, and they still tell me how I helped their child become a good swimmer.
