Former Employee - YMCA Lifeguard in Des Plaines, IL

I worked at YMCA part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great Co-workers, patrons where great and always nice to talk to. Management is very understanding.

Cons

Repeated days with hours on end of not having a break for more than 5 or 10 min a shift. Too short staffed during many shifts so ended up guarding for multiple hours on end with minimal breaks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more lifeguards, one guard up for more than an hour is Un-safe for the people in the water. People are not robots and need a break every so often in order to keep there vigilance at its best. Keep a rotating guard on the schedule during all times.
