Applied online, got a phone call the next day, set up an interview for the following day. Interviewed with the manager in her office, asked simple job related questions. Asked about child related experience since classes can range from 4 month olds to 7+ year olds. After the interview, the manager told me she would call me tomorrow, and she did call and offered me the job.

    Interview

    After applying to the job online, I immediately got a phone call from one of the managers on duty. We scheduled an interview for the following day and I was hired on the spot. They gave a general overview of the curriculum in their swim school and tested by existing knowledge of the pool, but prior experience is not required. After determining I was a good fit for the branch, I was asked to come in the following weekend for paid, on-site training in and out of the water.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Goldfish Swim School.

    Interview

    The interview was very low-key and had basic questions. If you have any type of swim experience it is very easy to get hired. I believe if you are a swim instructor you also have to be lifeguard certified, so having previous CPR or lifeguard certification would be a bonus.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Goldfish Swim School (Wexford, PA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I sent in my application online, got a call a few days later, had an interview two days after that. The interview was super short and easy. It was just me and the manager in her office. It was very casual. She asked me some basic questions, most of which were on the online application. She also asked me about hours and availability, and offered me the job right then. The manager set up my first work day (two days later) at the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldfish Swim School in January 2018.

    Interview

    They interviewed me over the phone and very quickly hired me. They essentially only asked questions revolving around Goldfish - Why did you choose to apply? What stuck out about Goldfish in comparison to other swim schools? - or questions about my availability. They didn't ask about my certifications and asked very briefly about my experience.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Goldfish Swim School (Evanston, IL).

    Interview

    Interviews are 15 minutes long if they're interested. They'll ask you if you've worked with kids before, are you a happy person, do you like babies, and how long you've been teaching.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldfish Swim School (Fort Washington, PA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Arrived and was pulled into an office where we talked about my experience with swimming, lifeguarding and working at pools. Talked about my availability (required to work at least one weekend day but you get to pick your days). Was giving a training packet with their handbook, and paperwork to fill out. Then I came in and trained for the job learning the curriculum, how teaching there works, and to see if it was a good fit.
