Former Employee - Senior Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor  in  Aurora, CO
Former Employee - Senior Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor in Aurora, CO

I worked at City of Aurora, Colorado part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The patrons are some of the most interesting you'll find, from the every morning regulars to the trouble makers. They'll always keep you on your toes! If you decide to teach swim lessons and devote yourself to your students, you'll build strong relationships to keep. It's a very relaxed and care-free environment.

Cons

Because of the entry level status, co-workers and supervisors are immature. Responsibility is a premium and it's hard to find. You'll pick up an extra shift because someone didn't show on a pretty regular basis, you'll have to re-do someone else's maintenance job because they didn't do it right and your supervisor likely won't put any repercussions for their poor work. Moving up is hard to do unless you become close with supervisors and sometimes fun gets in the way of safety on the job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think that more protocol needs to be put in place so that the City of Aurora isn't so bureaucratic. Managers should also be evaluated and relationships between management and staff should be professional and positive. Additionally, there should be repercussions for staff who don't do their job correctly, whether it's not performing safety procedure right, cleaning the facility or patron interaction. Taking care of the patron and facility should be top priority.

    Your tax dollars not at their finest. It is not what you know but whose back you scratch .

    Acknowledge your worker bees, stop hiring from the outside at such high salaries dissing those who remain loyal for no raises and furlough days.
