When I worked it would be for a solid 4 hour shift with myself as the only lifeguard. Staying alert was very important since I was the only one watching the pool. This job was very unorganized and my manager was not very responsible. My co-workers were great but I didn't really see them except for inservices. It was hard to handle everyone in the pool sometimes especially when there was an incident, but working at a pool made it more enjoyable.
Being at a pool.
Terrible management, being the only lifeguard and no rotations to stay alert.
