    I worked at City of Lenexa, KS full-time

    Pros

    Amazing staff, great people.The city really cares about making the pools the best they can be for their citizens, which includes having great lifeguarding staff to maintain active surveillance and keep patrons safe. A fun and safe environment to work in.

    Cons

    There are not many down sides. The city trains its lifeguards very well, which some may see the training sessions as a hassle or downside, however they are only investing in their workers to make sure they have the tools in their pocket to succeed at the job.

    Advice to Management

    Management did a great job. They also have head guards who are very helpful in working under the managers to be a direct communication link to the lifeguards.

    I worked at City of Lenexa, KS full-time

    Pros

    Excellent retirement benefits. In addition to KPERS, Lenexa offers a 401a retirement plan along with a 457 deferred comp plan.
    In general, a good management structure with dedicated employees

    Cons

    Some inexperienced and unprofessional managers make some positions difficult to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Promotion from within is not always a good fit. The lack of formal training when promotions occur is seriously lacking.

    Pros

    The company offers a flexible four ten hour four day a week job that let's you enjoy Friday, sat, and Sundays off! sweet!

    Cons

    The atmosphere in some areas are great while there are some other areas that
    have co-workers talk to you in a bad way. If you ask them to talk to you with some respect you will be fired! This place is filled with a very diverse group of people that have been left to make supervisor's decisions. If they don't want to do a job they will simply place you in that job It's a lose, lose situation for temp's and black's move out and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Let the supervisor's do their job and stop ignoring complaint's from temps about over baring controlling and bad co-workers from your worst nightmare!
