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

    Pros

    Lots of young, fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Benefits were expensive and not paid by employer. Pay was not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful about your employment references for previous employees. You do realize you can be sued if a previous employee is not able to get a job based on your reference and left the company on good terms, don’t you? The corporate office has lost a great amount of talent in the past year. That’s no coincidence. Unfortunately, company values are no longer being upheld by executive management. It’s really sad.

    I have been working at Goldfish Swim School part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The shifts are short and work well with a student's schedule, coworkers are friendly, and the work is relatively easy and fun

    Cons

    The managers are kind of a mess and the pool environment is terrible for your health. Training was poor

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on appreciating your employees and then they won't come and go so fast.
