    Former Employee - Shallow/Deep Lifeguard in Santa Clara, CA
    Former Employee - Shallow/Deep Lifeguard in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at California's Great America full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    free admission
    work outside
    40 hrs/week as a lifeguard during the summer

    Cons

    8.75/hr compared to 12.00+/hr that is standard for other lifeguarding positions.
    very strenuous work schedule
    CPR/first aid training was rushed, seemed incomplete, and doesn't transfer anywhere outside of CA's Great America

    also worked as a rides operator (briefly). safety is not a priority, paid minimum wage, supervisors too underpaid to care about quality of their work

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
