Instructor, Customer Service (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 July 2017
I love going in to work every day, I love the people I work with. The only drawback is enrollment varies session to session so I never know if my classes are going to run and if I'm going to have 15 hours of work per week this month or 30.
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 25 June 2017
Work full-time hours but only considered "part-time" staff so you won't receive benefits or vacation/sick days. Sometimes show up for a shift and programs have been canceled so you lose hours and made the trip for nothing wasted your whole day.
Recreation Coordinator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 May 2017
My typical day of work included prepping for the day and prepping for when the children come. I learned to be more patient working with children, their parents, and my peers and coworkers. It was a challenging job at times, but I learned to work well with others and as a team. The hardest part of the job was to deal with different situations that you might not have prepared for or would have foreseen coming, but nevertheless, there is a great team atmosphere. The greatest part of the job was being able to work with kids and see them enjoy and grow.
