An enjoyable experience

Lifeguard (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsGet to know other lifeguards, almost full time for a seasonal job, good starting pay

Consupper senior management do not care about lifeguards at all, they see lifeguards as expendable even though almost all pools were understaffed

Advice to Senior Managementtreat your workers with respect, encourage them to do a good/better job, DO NOT threaten them
