I love working for the City of Plano. I have the flexibility and to teach others to become comfortable and learn to swim. Love it when I see my students in the pool on their own practicing the skill.

The City of Plano is dedicated to serving the citizens while providing value. There is the typical bureaucracy seen in a city government, of course, but for the most part politics stays out of the day-to-day business.

This job is exactly as described. A lot of work but rewarding too. Can be stressful but it is a high stress environment dealing with wildlife and possibly aggressive animals.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
On call hours, but they're not hidden

As a swim instructor, I have the pleasure to help others to become comfortable in and around a pool. Teaching water safety and swim strokes. I would demonstrate the the strokes and give feedback toward their progress.

My duties included teaching about four classes in my 3-1/2 hour shift. I learned a great deal about water safety, rescue and CPR. The most enjoyable part of my job was when a customer would learn how to swim and become comfortable in the water.

They are really heavy on knowing your skills, especially during the summer when a lot more people start going out into the pool. The employees are great but you need to understand just because you are a lifeguard doesn't mean it's not work.

Wish I could go back in time and convince myself not to take this job. I would have been better off staying at my previous dead end job. Although I was able to catch up on a few shows I was behind on, so I guess it's not all negative.

Job was not as advertised. Supervisor did not provide any valuable coaching on improving in the position or provide concrete examples of what should be produced to be successful.

This was the best job I ever had. I would still be there if I didn't move. The people were great and you get to play with animals all day. It is a municipal job so you cant beat the benefits.

Management would have me work on an assigned project with detailed meeting with our PMO office to get specific details. I always had a timeline and always met my deadlines while bringing a project in at or under budget.

The hardest part of my job was unexpected project creep.


The most enjoyable part of my job was the technical challenges and being able to work with some of the finest people.


I have been fortunate to be able to meet and work with some of the brightest minds in the I.T. industry while being mentored and then helping other through my past experiences.
Pros
CBT Nuggets on-line courses.
Cons
Not enough staff

The job is ok, but some of the people that work there are not so much. The work is interesting once you get an understanding of the process. The training could be better, and asking for help usually turns into an ordeal with the lack of others wanting to assist with a question or an issue that might be out of the norm.
