    Great job for a teen/young adult.

    City of Evanston Lifeguard (Former Employee) Evanston, IL

    ProsGood pay for a younger person in the workforce, and working on the lakefront teaches a number of valuable life lessons. CPR and Lifeguarding certifications are thorough and useful for other seasons when beaches are closed

    ConsA lot of bureaucracy (to be expected) and need to work on 4th of July on lakefront. Can be socially exclusive. Only a seasonal job (May/June-September).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Lifeguard

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorked on the beach. Reasonable hours. was taught the importance of responsibility. Being in control of the general public is a big task for any 18 year old and employees grow a lot in a short period of time.

    ConsWorked for a bureaucracy and making changes with any city organization is difficult. constantly seem to be shrinking the budget

    Advice to Senior Managementeliminate bureaucracy

    The work atmosphere is laid back, you definitely can wield a degree of autonomy, but beware of all of the gossip.

    Assistant (Former Employee) Evanston, IL

    Pros- The work is manageable.
    - "Projects" are easy.
    - ample time to finish your work.

    Cons- some of the workers there over-amplify the difficulty of the job.
    - the pay is horrible ($10/hr)
    - don't count on being promoted unless you learn a skill.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't make things more stressful than they really are. Rather than spending time over-complicating and verbalizing work problems, you should instead get the job done.
