Very fun, active, fulfilling job! Always people around you who appreciate the work your doing! Good environment for children and has a very good purpose in helping children swim and stay safe! Learn things that will be helpful for the future!
A typical day being a camp counsellor for the City of Guelph allowed me to assist with programming including preplanning, set-up/take-down, implementing programs, active participation and evaluation. I worked within a group setting and learned many things while working here. It tested my patience while also allowing me to grow as a leader. There were many enjoyable parts of the job but my favourites had to be meeting new people while also allowing me to work in a faced pasted environment.
Typical day is not typical. I thrive on the changes and helps to work with the great team that I am apart of. Whether its a minor task or a major project - The City has provided me with the skills to accomplish it in a timely and safe fashion. They have my back, as I do theirs.
Management and co-workers, work environment
Always have to be on my game in the public eye
I've worked with the City of Guelph in the Aquatics department for about 2.5 years now. I slowly made my way up the ladder, and it was very easy to do so and they provided many opportunities to do so. While I worked there, we had job trainings every 3/4 months testing our skills which was stressful at times because it felt as if we would lose our jobs if we did not do everything at pro level. The salary is not very high, and has risen every year but not at the same rate that minimum wage has risen. So we started with the lowest position being a least 30 cents higher per hour than minimum wage, and now the lowest position is at minimum wage level. This is frustrating as we have to maintain so many qualifications we have to pay to do. Loved the staff we worked with for the most part, very easy to get along with.
Free entrances to public swims and aquafit classes as well as the gym facility.

Learned so much throughout the seasonal work every summer. Co-workers are great to work with no matter your age group. Everyone gets a long. The most enjoyable part of the job is being outside! It is a lot better than being stuck inside!
Can't think of any right now...
The management is great! They really care about each and everyone of their students. I enjoyed working outdoors in the summer.
Productive and a great place to work, just need more income. I really like the job, like being a team player. Love to have happy and satisfied customers.

I worked at the City of Guelph for one summer and the staff there are courteous and well organized. They treated me very well and were very professional with the training and hiring. I would recommend working for them any day.
