Slide Attendant, Fort McMurray, AB - 16 August 2017
A typical work day goes by very quickly. Every single day you earn something new, no matter how long you've been working there; you are encountered a different obstacle everyday. Management there isn't the best at times because they cover such a large base because they have to take care of many more departments in the sports and recreation department, not just the aquatics department,but they also try their best to be the most helpful possible and find temporarily solutions to any issues. Since the majority of our staff are under the age of 30, we're all innovative, creative and all live healthy active lifestyles. Everyone there is friendly,outgoing and approachable so work isn't boring to attend because we truly are one team. The hardest part of the job is the physical and fitness part. You're on your feet for a solid 6 hours constantly walking in circles and every month the managers release a mandatory fitness challenge which is generally quite difficult to ensure our fitness levels stay high enough incase of an emergency that could occur in the aquatics centre. And overall the most enjoyable part is working with people who are very much alike you, have the same goals and live very similar lifestyles.
