    I have been working at Town of Barnstable Recreation Department full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked on the waterfront and worked as a lifeguard and WSI. In this job you are guaranteed 40 hours a week with lots of opportunity to take on extra hours. As you stay longer, you get better days off and work as better beaches. Also, the town sets up recertifications every three years.

    Cons

    You get what you get. If you get stuck with a bad schedule its what you have for the whole summer. Be sure you know your schedule before you commit to anything.

    I have been working at Town of Barnstable Recreation Department full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best job you will probably ever have.

    Cons

    If the weather is cold and rainy, you still work outside. Get use to Cape Cod cold wet rainy days and you will be fine!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some times it is hard to separate friendship and management.

    I worked at Town of Barnstable Recreation Department

    Pros

    It's fun. Kids can get annoying, but that happens. Overall it is not a bad place to work. Go for it.

    Cons

    It can get old. It all comes down to how much you enjoy working with little children. If they annoy you too much then it's unfortunate for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have none.
