POOL OPERATOR/LIFEGUARD (Current Employee) – Crofton, MD – November 21, 2018
I loved working for High Sierra Pools. I had a great manager that loved my work ethic. I would go out of my way to get more time to work there every single week because the pay was so good. I did have to travel sometimes but it was never too far out of my range to drive to.

This company doesnt have any regard for international students as they are not equally paid they pay international students. $9 per hour which is way below minimum wage in this current state and now they are advertising jobs for $13 an hour.
International students should be paid just fairly as you pay others.
Head Lifeguard/Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – June 3, 2018
I live in New York and was recommended this job from a mutual friend and thought to give it a go. I completed the certification at the High Sierra Pools office and proceeded to work in the HR department for the next week. Lifeguarding is great however, the schedule makers for the company are very flaky and often times give schedule the day of work. Other than that it is a good first experience for lifeguards. A very international company as a lot of lifeguards are on work and travel program from Europe.
Excellent company with a friendly enviroment and good benefits.

It began with a cup of coffee at the office, while we wait for our tasks, departing to the assigned job site, sometimes with a helper, tools and the right material to fix the problem. Identify and solve the problem, making sure that we fix the problem by testing equipment in the minimum possible time. Call the office and report that everything was alright and proceed with the next task. Present reports by the end of the day.

Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – December 6, 2017
For a starter job this isn't that bad of a place to work. The customers are incredible and the pay for an average person isn't bad neither. I would say my time working with High Sierra was very important for the future plans I had at the time.
Best in the pool industry, with a diverse, multinational staff.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Maryland – December 5, 2017
I worked for High Sierra Pools for five years, and I learned a lot from the company about legal compliance, safety, and business in general. Staffing is sometimes a problem in this industry, but High Sierra Pools provides better service for their clients than their competitors do. I wish them well, and I recommend their services to anyone who is looking for better quality.
The management team tends to value good workers. If you are a good worker, then you will probably be recognized as such fairly quickly, and possibly offered more responsibility as a result.
Nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it.
