Lifeguard at the YMCA: responsible for others lives, was great for tons of fun in learning and teaching everyday.
Lifeguard (Former Employee), Innisfil, ONOctober 20, 2013
Pros: friendly staff, working with children, working with the public, helping getting over fears, being open to new challenges, meeting lots of new people.
Cons: not enough staff members, felt unappreciated, wanted to work for the joy of being apart of a team not a one man team.
A typical day at the pool would be opening the pool by myself, I would be responsible for making sure the lane ropes were in properly for the adults to come swimming at 5:30 in the morning. I would have to make sure I had enough equipment for the members to use so that when I was guarding I was focused on their safety rather than not keeping my eyes – more... on them to grab the equipment for them to use. I also was a supervisor for swimming lessons and I was responsible for checking report cards, making sure the other lifeguards were prepared and were ready to teach the plan they had prepared. Teaching was my favorite part of the job. Getting in the water with the children and having the parents give such positive outcome on their progression was the most amazing part. My manager was great, she was supportive and she wanted nothing more than to see all of her staff members succeed at the pool but it was very hard to balance school and work when I was in school. The hardest part of the job at the YMCA was the inconsistency in most of the lifeguards and I would end up working for 12 hours a day and it was getting hard with school on top. I did not mind the hours, I love to work, but I was not getting the appreciation and I was overly exhausted. I learnt that with hard work you can do anything. If you I teach a two year old to float on their back and to stop being terrified of the water I feel as though anything is obtainable with a little bit of hard work and dedication. – less

Fun workplace and fair and approachable Coordinators.
Supply Early Childhood Educator Assistant (Current Employee), Barrie, ONSeptember 8, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: low wage, unpaid lunch
A typical day at work involves assisting the ECE Teacher with implementing activities, assisting during meal-times, nap-times, diapers, outdoor supervision, and acting as a liason between parents and ECE Teacher and/or Coordinator. The hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with children with behavioural issues. The most enjoyable part of – more... the job is engaging and inspiring young minds. My favourite group to work with is infants and toddlers. They have so much energy and make the work day pass by quickly! – less

Most enjoyable part of the job
Childcare Provider (Current Employee), Orillia, ONMay 22, 2013
Pros: free lunches, working with great co workers
Cons: breaks, not being able to move farther up in the job
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the children and the interactions that I get with each child and parent. I enjoy seeing how happy I can make each person and child every day. I like to think I can change a child's life and grow strong relationships with them. My main goal is to be successful and to take each day with a smile and with – more... a positive outlook on life. – less
