Former Employee - Lifeguard in Houston, TX

I worked at City of Houston part-time for less than a year

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at City of Houston full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, a lot of free time, you get 3 personal days if you dont use sick days, pay is okay.

    Cons

    pay is way below compared to the corporate world, not enough room for advancement/growth, insurance sucks now that they turned to Cigna, a lot of kiss asses here, go under the heads desk for more money or promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I liked upper management when i first hired on, but now its just relatives helping each other out, in their own little world. I plan on leaving ASAP.
