Easy job
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  Brunswick, GA2018, szeptember 22.
Working for the YMCA is good for short-term employment. Seasonal positions pay decent and the hours are flexible for the most part. Frequent changes in management made it hard to keep up with facility information.

Working with children was a great experience
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  Chino, CA2018, szeptember 19.
Was one of the most fun jobs I had. Working with children really taught me patience. Summer would be extremely busy but winter would really slow business/ hours.

Ymca
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Houston, TX2018, szeptember 17.
It depends what I would work as. If I'm a lifeguard the day usually goes by slow. If I am swim instructing it goes by quick and I enjoy my time working with the children. Some children are terrified of the water at first but as they keep coming to each lesson they learn what they can do in the water instead of having fear for it. At the YMCA you learn to trust very few people because others will turn their backs to you if you do not do anything to their liking.

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Aurora, CO2018, szeptember 16.
The YMCA provided me with endless opportunities, and i’m forever grateful of that job. The only downside is that the job is seasonal, which is why I am looking for another job part time.

Not Great
Swim Instructor, Burbank (Volt alkalmazott) –  Reading, MA2018, szeptember 14.
There are no chances to advance, the pay is pretty poor, and after working there for years I can honestly say that the management is atrocious. Look elsewhere.

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  Dallas, TX2018, szeptember 13.
The work environment is exactly like a family and because of that you are always looking forward to going to work. Also it is a place where both the employs and customers interact all the time and most of the times form healthy relationships.

Interesting
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  New Brighton, PA2018, szeptember 13.
Working at the YMCA was a good experience although I at a few times was uncomfortable by the customers that would come in the pool and I felt that I would not be able to leave and get help quickly.

It was a job
Lifeguard and Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  Greenville, WI2018, szeptember 12.
A typical day at work involved sitting in a chair and trying not to die of boredom. I found teaching to be a much more enjoyable way to pass the time. I learned about conflict resolution, punctuality, and professionalism at the job, as well as some useful first aid knowledge. The management was okay. The hardest part of the job is the gnawing, soul-crushing boredom that comes from life-guarding. It is hard just to do that much nothing, but you will never get paid more for doing less. The most enjoyable part was the end of the day, but also working with children teaching them how to swim.

Experience as a Swim Instructor
Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  Tampa, FL2018, szeptember 10.
Before I did my job interview I did a swim test to see if I was able to swim 6 strokes, freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke, sidestroke, and elementary backstroke. After that and the interview, I had to obtain certifications and training. The YMCA I worked at didn't do American Red Cross CPR certification class instead, they used American Safety and Health Institute certification class. You would also have to be swim instructor certified.

Once I finished obtaining my certifications I was able to shadow a swim instructor and how they teach lessons. After shadowing I was scheduled with my own group lessons.

A typical day of work is me coming in and setting up the pool, bringing toys out, signs of what classes are where, and roping off a section of the pool. I would teach a class for 40 minutes, get a 10-minute break, teach another class for 40 minutes, and so on. I would teach either on Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs or on Sat. So I only taught group lessons worked 3 hours twice a week unless I got assigned private lessons.

I would teach all ages, mostly preschool and school age. Time to time I taught adults and teens in a class, or in a private lesson, but it was quite rare. Don't expect to be out of the water and telling the students what to do. Majority of the time you are in the water showing the students how to do the skill. In general, it's good to know what skill you are teaching and have confidence in not only yourself but also your student.

Dealing with parents/guardians is kind of like customer service. You have to update their child on how they are doing,
  több... what they can do to improve, etc. On the third lesson, we would have to create mid-session progress reports on what skills their child has learned so far and what they can improve. On the last lesson, we create something similar but it also recommends what stage they should be in. A lot of parents would be understanding if the child had to redo the stage because sometimes they just need a little practice, But there are some parents who would be upset at me wondering why they didn't go to the next stage. It would be very helpful if the parents/guardians also helped with their children learning to swim. Even just a little bit of practice outside of lessons can do the most.

I would also work with other swim instructors and lifeguards. It's fairly easy to know one another only because there would normally be a small number of us.

Overall I really liked working for the YMCA, and would totally recommend if you are interested in teaching swimming.

Relaxed, fun part-time summer job
Lifeguard & Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  Norcross, GA2018, szeptember 10.
Worked as a lifeguard. One indoor pool that was never too crowded, so I was never in much stress about having to save anyone. Days with camp was challenging but entertaining. Also gave swim lessons

Great part-time or temporary summer work.
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Palestine, TX2018, szeptember 10.
This summer working for the YMCA as a lifeguard has been a wonderful experience. I’ve taught over 100 students in swimming and watched them advance from blowing bubble to swimming across the pool with proper technique. I’ve been on stand on busy days near maximum capacity and had slow days with 20 people in the water.

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Columbus, GA2018, szeptember 10.
The YMCA has helped me socialize, and collide with others. All the way from having a good time, to completely being in a focused demeanor to either help a member, or co-worker when needed.

Couldn't move up within the company
Lifeguard and Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  San Mateo, CA2018, szeptember 8.
This was my first official job as a lifeguard. The main reason for leaving was that I was offered a better job at a larger pool that was outdoors with more opportunities for advancement.

Productive and fun workplace, great employees and work environment
Lifeguard, Swim Instructor, Supervisor (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Charlotte, NC2018, szeptember 7.
A typical day during the summer is very busy, with camp and regular patrons mixing in. We always have to be vigilant, but having proficient guards around you always helps. As a supervisor, making sure your guards are getting the help they need while in the heat is a must, and I try to do that, and my fellow supervisors are good at doing that as well. The guards at Simmons YMCA are always on top of everything, and also create a fun work environment on and off the stand. The hardest part of the job is the heat, but if we have plenty of water and assistance from others, the heat is made easier. The most enjoyable part of the job are the people, meeting different types of people that come in, and also making friends with employees while on the job. The YMCA was a valuable experience, and I would most likely refer a friend to work at the Simmons YMCA in the future.

Fun place to be
Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  Caldwell, ID2018, szeptember 5.
Even as an employee, I enjoyed being at the YMCA. My managers and coworkers were awesome, and I truly loved teaching kids how to swim. I would come into work and set up for my classes. I'd have like 4 half hour classes. Honestly, the parents can be difficult sometimes. I would've stayed at that job if I would've had more hours.

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  LaPorte, IN2018, szeptember 5.
I enjoyed my job and all that I did, but there was a problem juggling work and school. I had a maximum of five hours to work per week, and it wasn't working out well. Patrons weren't listening when I was guarding and it was a stressful position.

Great place to work while in school, especially if you love working with people and kids in particular. Great organization but probably would not be a career for me.

A quick job for a high schooler who just wants a few extra bucks.
Swim Instructor (Volt alkalmazott) –  Avon, OH2018, szeptember 3.
Pay was absolutely awful, minimum wage, as were hours. I was hardly given more than 7 a week. I was saving for a car and there was no way I could stay there, left after working for a few months.
