Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Park Ridge, IL – June 24, 2018
I worked as an office assistant for a couple months. Managers and people were generally great but not much opportunity for lots of hours so don't expect it. Compensation could be a bit better but this is a good job if you enjoy being paid to do nothing.
Great management staff and good place to work as a first job

Head Cashier (Current Employee) – Park Ridge, IL – January 12, 2018
Very flexible working hours, excellent seasonal employment. I had a great relationship with my manager, who was very understanding and easy to communicate with. Shifts can be very boring, but with that comes no physical labor or exhausting hours in the sun.
Easy work, incredibly flexible hours
Mind numbingly boring at times, Customer Service sometimes isn't great

Lifeguard, Swim Instructor, Swim Coach (Current Employee) – Park Ridge, IL – August 26, 2013
Typical day included opening the pool around five in the morning, doing a chemical reading for the pool, checking first aid, AED, and oxygen. I lifeguarded the pool during both quiet and busy hours. I learned from my management about being prompt to every shift, being confident in my first aid and CPR skills, and being personable to the pool patrons. I also learned how to work well with my fellow co-workers. The hardest part was dividing my time between lifeguarding, teaching lessons, and coaching swim team. The most enjoyable part of the job was doing first aid when needed and promoting safety.
