    Pros

    Pay is higher than most other lifeguard jobs nearby and the employees are really cool. The workload is rewarding and the patrons remind you of that.

    Cons

    management can be suffocating and irrational. Too much attention towards patrons and their needs instead of looking out for employees.

    Advice to Management

    use common sense. Stop listening to patrons over your own employees and try to make life easier for them. Sweatpants should be allowed
