Or did they train you as long as you could swim? Also do most lifeguards at Schlitterbahn have competitive experience in swimming like swim team? Less

Who are you!!? I was there too as a passing candidate in July 11th wetscreen! Glad to see a collegue that also use ls this app. Less

If you value your sanity, do not work here. It is a toxic environment full of inexperienced leaders who have been with the city for decades all in a clique having affairs and going on camping trips together.. They hire new people, take their ideas and pass them off to The City Manager as their own. Senior leadership are a joke, every sentence they speak is self promoting but have zero experience. Its a graveyard full of people that didn't make it in the real world - Some of them are pure slime. Pension and benefits are the only bonus, and if thats all your in it for then drink the cool aid and join them. Best of luck. Less
