    I worked at San Antonio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great first summer job and an enjoyable experience. You meet and engage with the community residents, teach swim lessons, and earn a really good salary for a summer job.

    Cons

    The summer heat can take a toll on your body if you don't wear enough sunscreen. Since it is a public pool there will be times when lifeguards are expected to clean all kinds of bodily fluids from the pool and bathrooms.

    Pros

    Other teachers are fun and supportive. The students are great, of course! There is a full time aide in every classroom.

    Cons

    The director micromanages. Stress level is very high due to a high profile program. The director cares more about appearances than about children or staff. Different standards are applied to staff according to favoritism. Daily procedures are strictly prescribed. Glorified Head Start.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate discriminatory practices by the director.
    Ditch the overly prescribed procedures.
