I worked 20 to 25hr very flexible with scheduling. I learned customer relations as well as First Aid and CPR. The management was good until our aquatics director left. The culture was good until our seasoned lifeguards left. The hardest part of the job was the in-services and the most enjoyable part was interacting with your co-workers.
A typical work day is busy. You are constantly on your feet and problem solving throughout the day. I learned how to build relationships with parents and children. Being at this job I had to learn how to keep a classroom managed with multiple children present ranging from 8-20 children, sometimes staffing was limited so you had to maintain ratio but sometimes, the support wasn't always present. Hardest part of the job is conflicts with parents, or challenging behavior within the classroom. The most enjoyable part was interacting with the children, teaching them and learning from them
