    I worked at Tarrant County College part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The management is wonderful. I worked with amazing team members and other lifeguards. Made some good friends. You act as both gym supervisor and lifeguard so you never get bored. Management is very understanding of college students trying to work towards their future.

    Cons

    Scheduling can be a bit difficult because it is based off of the classes offered in the gym.
