    Current Employee - Lead Lifeguard in Fort Rucker, AL

    I have been working at American Pool Enterprises part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Being an American Pools lifeguard carrys a lot of weight when on your aquatics resume. There are many hours to be had if making money during the summer is your primary goal.

    Cons

    If you are a Waterfront certified guard, you may have to recert as a shallow water guard when the other expires. The pools on Fort Rucker are 5 ft. Deep max. When you PCS, finding a pool to work at with shallow water certification only could be a challenge. Leads are normally teens who show minimal leadership skills. The website for picking up shifts did not work properly all summer, making it impossible to pick up extra shifts unless you were lucky enough to reach the main office.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at American Pool Enterprises.

    Interview Details

    If you have a lifeguard certification, two legs, two arms, and lungs in case you have to do CPR then you're good. They will pretty much hire just about anyone so do not worry yourself about the interview process. I mean obviously show up and look decent, but don't overdo it.
