Rewarding workplace with pleasant staff and reasonable schedule
Lifeguard (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) – Bethesda, MD – 2016, december 28.
As a lifeguard the, it is expected that one maintains constant vigilance and keeps an eye on the customers to ensure their safety throughout the day. The schedules do change, so the management has to be prepared to call in substitutes, and people will look to you sometimes to fulfill that requirement. One must use their breaks to refresh themselves, and cannot leave suddenly in the middle of a shift, as it inconveniences those who also have schedules. Other than keeping watch over the customers, ones must be willing to maintain the overall condition of the pool
Some problems communication between coworkers and managers

I let go of the mission valley YMCA because i didn't earn any benefits from working 40 hours a week because my tittle wasn't consider full time. So i focused on my other job that i at least got more benefits from.

I was a lifeguard for a short time at an indoor pool at the YMCA. Found my experience to be a good one after I became closer with the community the Y brings. The members were always nice and interested in the employees.

The YMCA is a great place to work if you d9nt mund working a lot of hours. Only real downdude to working at the YMCA is that we are usually understaffed. We hire a lot of people that are looking for a part time job and intend to move on. Usuakly these people go to college and vome back for the summers

Lifeguarding at the YMCA is kind of stressful because you have to take a two hour class once a month. It is also stressful because you never know when you are going to have to use the skills you have learned. Sometimes people swimming think you are harsh on them, so they tend to argue even though you are doing your job and trying to keep them safe.
Slow-paced/fast paced, collaborative, and productive

Being a lifeguard isn't easy and somedays would be great where others would be a tad bit harder. I am also a swim instructor and I feel as if I create special bonds with the kids I teach which makes my job very rewarding.
free gym membership, great boss, and amazing co-workers

A day at work depends on how busy it was. The staffing is super nice becomes a family. The hardest part of the job is if it is busy might have a lot of saves. The most enjoyable part of the job is your coworkers and the guest that come to the pool.
