    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
