Slow but very efficient place to work.
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Current Employee) – China Grove, NC – October 19, 2018
At the YMCA I applied so that I could help a branch who was having difficulty with finding lifeguards to monitor the pool. I applied and went through the training very quickly so that I could watch my patrons. I monitored the pool, sauna, steam room, outdoor water system, and the whirlpool. I would open and close the pool periodically for breaks and for the end of the day. I was given responsibility because, there is only one lifeguard of duty for the pool at a time.
Not hectic. Most patrons are elderly swimmers.
Less breaks than expected.
