Lifeguard and Aquatics Supervisor (Former Employee) – Halifax, Nova Scotia – 13 February 2017
I loved working as a lifeguard for HRM. The pay was really fair and I met so many fun and exciting people. there is room to grow and you learn so much about yourself and other people. It's just a fabulous job for a high school or college student.
Showing up to work everyday knowing that you are doing something to make your community a better place was fulfilling. It is easy to get up in the morning knowing you going to an environment where you can get along with all of your co-workers and get the job done.
I've worked there for five years and it took me that log to be completely nauseated a senior staff memeber, they have had several managers over the years and every time it's like starting over, the furthest thing from a smooth transition. Staff is not disciplined for missing work or not showing up and they are so desperate at times they get uncertified people to work! They pay well and run great programs but management needs work.
Supportive management, friendly staff and wonderful experience
