    I have been working at Big Blue Swim School full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very rewarding and your efforts are always noticed. Great feedback from management and lots of help getting you to where you want to be in the company.

    Cons

    Some co-workers bring along drama but that’ll be found in any workplace.

    Advice to Management

    None, you’re doing amazing!!

    I have been working at Big Blue Swim School full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Full time, awesome benifits, free lunch on weekends, rewarding watching and helping children learn and accomplish new skills,

    Cons

    Some employees love to gossip and it can be hard to avoid not getting involved in some drama here and there. The heat on deck and being in the water can be taxing and exausting.

    Advice to Management

    Id say take time to check in With all of the employees one on one from time to time maybe once every couple of weeks.

    I worked at Big Blue Swim School full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great culture and environment to work in! Great place to learn a little bit of everything, everyone was very patient and encouraging throughout my training process. I've felt this place has really helped me figure out my strengths and passion which I will forever be thankful for. Extremely sad to say bye to such an awesome workplace and work family. Shoutout to Marissa, Lucia, Jenelle, and Thoma for their patience,... leadership and professionalism, they recognize everyone's efforts and always encourage you to strive for more, 6 months in I was offered a supervisor position, a raise and a full bonus, for simply trying my best and loving what I do. I look forward to coming back in the future.

    Cons

    Difficult to provide 100% customer satisfaction when only one phone number for all locations, parents are comfortable with our staff so frustrating for them when they call one location and another picks up. Bathrooms could use remodeling, updated cleaning supplies.

    Advice to Management

    Marissa, Jennelle, & Lucia are the absolute best managers!
