    flexible hours, nice co workers, good managment

    I worked at D C Leisure Management part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good flexible workload. excellent pay for someone of a young age and a generally enjoyable experience meeting new people.

    Cons

    work can often be counter-productive and communication between management and lifeguards could have been improved. may have changed since I left. also, the actual lifeguarding could become very tedious, the pool was rarely busy and when it was busy it was often for swimming lessons.


  4. "Good for basic salary. Not much opportunities for PT."

    I worked at D C Leisure Management part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Better basic rate than most corporate gyms. Flexible working hours. Pay you even if you are not with a client.

    Cons

    Very reluctant to buy any new equipment for the gym. Company cares more about numbers on the floor than number of clients you have. Cut from PT isn't great either.


  5. "Workin' 9 to 5, or actually like 9 hours a week"

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Very nice people who are fun to work with and relaxed culture that leads unpressurised work.
    Good facilities and nice customers.

    Cons

    Very low pay compared to other lifeguarding jobs and boring work.
    Lifeguards are expected to clean everything - including toilets and showers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lifeguards if they have a problem.
    Perhaps hire some part-time cleaners.
    Organise the cleaning rotas so they are more effective.
