    I worked at Big Blue Swim School full-time

    Pros

    Working with great employees, and teaching some really fantastic children, something I'll never forget.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get it together. This company is not going to succeed if you keep running it the way you are, and letting your Regional Manager get away with everything. It's ridiculous how you let this man take charge of a 5 star facility, only to screw everything up all in the matter of two weeks. I'm not a bitter employee, and honestly, since I was let go, it's been a huge relief, but I hate seeing my fellow... associates getting treated with so much disrespect. The only way you would ever get respected, or noticed nonetheless, is by kissing up to the regional manager, because he sure does enjoy playing favorites. And yet, parents are withdrawing, employees are leaving because the only thing you care about is money. John and Chris are great people, you guys had run a fantastic business, and you two are great people, but you need to open your eyes up and see that you need better management.
