Decent responisbilities, bad pay

YMCA Lifeguard (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsYou can take on responsibilities as much as you want since most people are lazy. Everybody's pretty friendly, and the work isnt hard at all.

ConsVery low pay, we were in charge of people's lives and were paid less than the front desk personnel. Lots of training, that's boring and pointless.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
