    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at City of Vancouver, Canada.

    Interview

    Wet screening held at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre with a large group of candidates. Everyone had to do full NLS standards (distance swim with all strokes, retreive brick from dive-tank, pia carry etc.) as well as teaching and rescue simulations. Each round needed to be passed to proceed to the next. The whole process took 3-4 hours. Less than 20% of people passed the screening and were hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Come up with a simple, 5 minute lesson activity for a certain swim level and teach it to the other hires   1 Answer
