Program Leader (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – November 17, 2016
A typical day begins at 7 am for before school care. Children arrive and to school and you prvide care until school begins. In the afternoon children arrive to you and parents pick them up. In between time you provide snack, curriculum, homework help and active play activities. Management is great with lots of support for questions and concerns. Supervisors are not directly on site. Co-workers were up-beat and great to work with Hardest part of the job was sometimes having to deal with space/ schedule conflicts, while keeping 30+ kids entertained and safe. Most enjoyable part of the job was getting to go to work and make a difference in a childs life.Getting to be there for them, showing and giving them experiences they might not have had before.
50% off child-care for school age children, Great place for someone enrolled in school!

Job Work/Life Balance
horrible and lack of consistency
LIFEGUARD (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – February 5, 2018
There were 4 supervisors in total and only 2 of them were ever nice and concerned about their employees. The other 2 were downright mean and would nit-pick at everything programmers would do. There was never any consistency with what was expected of workers, one supervisor would say something then another would say something completely different. The place always felt stressful and was constantly pushed to do thing OUTSIDE of my job description and put up with difficult situations (such as a 911 call, stabbing, or fight) with little support. Was doing full time hours, duties, and responsibilities on a part-time salary. Would never work there again.
Free access to the pool and other Willamalane facilities or events
Short breaks (or none at all), constantly yelled at my patrons and supervisors, didn't work with employees
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – November 28, 2017
It was very fun to work there, you have to be train every 15 day on How to rescue people in the pool, plus, swim laps and grab a break from the bottom of the pool, and drag it in the bottom up to the another side of the pool. Also on the diving pool we have to pick out some keys that some one drop in the deepest part of the pool. Keep a 365 scans every 15 seconds. Be ready to act on any danger signal Like a woman doing exercise in the swallow part of the pool, waving her and at you,some times is to said hi, but also could be a sing that she needs help, because she is having a crumb cramp. Proud of having safe 17 kids and 2 adult from drowning.
