    I worked at Glenview Park District part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They were always supportive. There was nothing that I felt I couldn't share with them.

    Cons

    The cons were so minimal that they don't require a comment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just continue to support your teachers with the amazingly wonderful support you give them.

    I worked at Glenview Park District part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy work, great interactions between fellow employees, easy uniforms, a lot of downtime to get other stuff done

    Cons

    Upper management is flying by the seat of their pants, terrible communication, people get promoted solely by seniority not by their work, too cheap to fix broken things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent with your discipline.

    Promote those who deserve it, not those who have been there the longest.

    Know that you run pools, not country clubs.

    It was pretty uneventful, slow paced work environment.

    I worked at Glenview Park District part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    liked the online shift system

    Cons

    it's a harder lifeguarding job than most, country clubs usually pay better and have easier shift rotation as well. Sometimes had over 1 hour 20 min up in the chair in a row and it gets to be a little too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more people, and lower the shift durations up in the chair.

    Pros

    Some good coworkers. Can come back every summer if you do a good job.

    Cons

    Poor hours, strict work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone with a business degree or HR. You need to hire the correct number of people so everyone can get the hours they are supposed to work.

    no chande to be regular if you dont have a good experience from prev. job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    part timers are working like the full time so maybe after a month of working they should increase the wage more.

    I worked at Glenview Park District

    Pros

    Really fun environment, great management- very flexible on accommodating with scheduling, really great job, not difficult and rewarding when interacting with many different people.

    Cons

    Work with a lot of high school age teenagers, some who do not do their jobs well and are lazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more opportunities for advancement, it is hard to get promoted because most of the jobs are only part-time but that is probably the nature of a park district.
