For a lifeguard at a government owned park....Great!
Written by Lifeguard Watermine (Former Employee) from Reston, VA on August 2, 2017
It was a nice summer job between semesters. Of course it was not really going to progress anywhere, but for what it was it was great. Sometimes customers were cruddy but the management was never a pain.
