    Pros

    Everyone gets along very well and has fun working together. One can choose their own hours and have time for family.

    Cons

    Occasional gossip and appearance of nepotism regarding who gets full time and who gets hired.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest ending the nepotistic practices regarding who gets full time or not. This would greatly increase morale.

    Pros

    Stable in the way that only government can be. The work is not unreasonable and you'll always know your paycheck will arrive.

    Cons

    It's politics all the way down. If you want to advance as a full timer you either have to really play the political game or be somehow indispensable. Don't look for logic, you wont find it. Equipment can be lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Worry less about political implications unless your in an elected position. Try prioritizing facilitates by how many resources they actually need instead of showering them on the “Crown Jewels” as it where.

    Pros

    Pay is higher than most other lifeguard jobs nearby and the employees are really cool. The workload is rewarding and the patrons remind you of that.

    Cons

    management can be suffocating and irrational. Too much attention towards patrons and their needs instead of looking out for employees.

    Advice to Management

    use common sense. Stop listening to patrons over your own employees and try to make life easier for them. Sweatpants should be allowed
