    I have been working at Town of Oyster Bay part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Kind group of high school and college students - Onsite Lieutenants and Captain are great - Thirty minutes sits with a thirty minute break - Multiple paid hour breaks throughout the day

    Cons

    - Hours (10:30 - 7 and sometimes 8 or 8:30) - No vacation days or sick days - Too many guards, leads to hours being cut and mandatory half days - Minimum wage starting pay - Broken Equipment that doesn't get fixed - Mandatory overtime at standard pay - Lifeguards can't leave until all the patrons have left the pool deck

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire too many guards and then cut our hours, Pay us $15/hr like Town of Hempstead

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Town of Oyster Bay part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Worked as lifeguard, it was great hours, good pay and a steady job for the summers when I was younger.

    Cons

    As I got older I realized that the town was really corrupt. Hiring was stunted by politics, my job was hindered by politics. I had upper town management, elected officials, come to my pool and lie straight to my face. only to undermine me when they get to their office.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone and start over

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Town of Oyster Bay full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    easy work, decent pay, fun environment. Good people to work with. they are young and we usually hung out on our time off.

    Cons

    You have to work long hours, often 9am - 9pm. The town has gotten increasingly strict with its workers after a few scandals.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees
