    I worked at Aqua-Guard Pool Management part-time

    Pros

    Lifeguarded here for a few summers, was great and management was easy to work with.

    Cons

    None that I can really think of, everything was always fine and these are extra words to get to twenty.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe some more notice about when we'd be required to work and what the different pools were going to be like before arriving.

    I have been working at Aqua-Guard Pool Management (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good in that it does understand when family emergencies come up, my grandfather wound up in the hospital and they did cover my shifts, so I really appreciated that.

    Cons

    Not getting paid on time, and being brushed off when trying to get paid! Being told that you are at fault, even though the proper address was given!

    Advice to Management

    Pay people on time! Have a place that you can meet your employees who work farther away so that they actually get their check! Don't depend on the mail system, it's YOUR responsiblity to pay people.

  5. Lifeguard position at Aqua-Guard

    I worked at Aqua-Guard Pool Management part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being a lifeguard is nice, it is a great summer job. There are lots of openings for summer jobs in many places around Illinois.

    Cons

    The certification class is very expensive, and with a lowish hourly wage, some would consider the certification not worth the job.

    I have been working at Aqua-Guard Pool Management part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The lifeguard and CPO training was extremely cheap and you had quite a bit of independence in your job. It was only a summer job.

    Cons

    They don't really stand by their staff and they don't respond to the needs of the pools, like handling issues and getting supplies that is needed, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees.

    Pros

    The pool I was placed at was close to my house and the lifeguard training I recieved cost less than other places and was at a convienient time.

    Cons

    The management is selfish, unreliable and impossible to get a hold of. They advised me to call the police everytime this one kid who was banned from the pool caused problems. Then they yelled at me for calling the police. They never attempted to resolve issues between the kid and employees at my pool. It felt like a very unsafe position, with a little 11 year old kid threatening you and your bosses telling you to keep letting him come to the pool.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees. Your company will be more profitable if you hire competent/ knowledgeable staff and don't treat the employees like trash. I think you guys should just restructure your company and communicate with your employees.
