    Neutral Outlook

    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

  10. "Worth it while in college"

    I worked at Town of Oyster Bay

    Pros

    Brainless job. Not overly taxing and hardly any stress. Everything is very laid back and hardly any deadlines for work

    Cons

    Brainless job where nobody has any idea of how to make things work better. If older employees with hardly any education would listen to young employees that are educated things would run more smoothly
