Good First Job
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor, Server, Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Broomfield, CO – September 30, 2014
I have worked for Broomfield as a lifeguard and swim instructor for several years now. It is a great place to start out, because young people can easily be taken advantage of by their employers, but Broomfield protects its' employees. However, the majority of lifeguards are high school age kids, and therefore there is quite a bit of high school drama and cliques. The pool managers are also young, and this sometimes results in them picking favorite, being too laid back, or just being unprofessional jerks. But, in comparison to other places teenagers often work, it does feel safer. Also, guards usually get a 20 minute break about once an hour, which is alot compared to places I've worked since.
Well respected, we often get raises, opportunity to move up, employee protection.
Constantly having to recertify, lots of training, centered around high school age kids, young employees areent professional, no sick days.
