I have been working at Town of Southeast New York
Pros – Well paid, strong increase in pay every year, boss recognizes hard work, there is great flexibility in taking time off as needed, many hours availible to work.
Cons – Ther is little room for advancement. There is only one position higher than lifeguard and that is head guard. The advancement is strictly based on seniority and completion of wsi, not on ability.
Advice to Senior Management – Begin to add other areas of advancement, maybe senior guard etc. While ther are pay increases every year, an increased title will atract better talent.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Town of Southeast New York
Pros – fun to drive the zamboni when the rink was empty
Cons – stressful driving zamboni with people watching
body aches from cold
cleaning hockey dressing rooms was the most disgusting job i've ever had in my life (hockey players are pigs)
working in public sector sucked - got reported to town office when having zamboni mechanical trouble and was blamed for taking too long to clean ice even though it was eventually done properly and no one lost ice time.
mopping entire lobby, dressing rooms, bleachers (in the cold)
very hard work with not enough pay
always working by oneself
Advice to Senior Management – better shifts
2 people on every shift
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
