Lifeguard/ Instructor (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC9 December 2012
Working as a lifeguard for the City of Burnaby has been a good experience overall. Typically I do safety checks, stock first aid, manage other lifeguards, guard the patrons, deal with first aid emergencies, teach fitness and swimming and more. The hardest part of the job is staying alert during long guarding shifts. The most enjoyable part for me is teaching fitness.
Pros
fitness is a part of the job
Cons
on your feet a lot, rigid guarding schedule

REC CLERK (Current Employee) –  BURANBY7 June 2017
A typical day is never the same. There is a lot of data entry, dealing with the public, answering phone calls, registering and unregistered from programs, making sure customers and turn over is flowing properly. Tending to medical emergencies if there are any.
Pros
nice people
