Great Place to Work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Friendly staff where teamwork plays a major part in the operation. Upper management may be difficult at times but things have been changed and now it is even better to work for such a fantastic organization. Hard work is extremely valued.

Fun and lighthearted environment with kind supervisors.

As a volunteer I was responsible for things such as supervising children, assisting counselors with setting up / taking down different objects for activities and being engaged in the activities to help keep the children content. The management and supervisors were very nice to me and it made my time there a lot more enjoyable. Most of the enjoyable parts were the interactions I got to share with the children and the supervisors. The children were fun and well behaved, and the supervisors would give me advice and guidance to help me improve as a person and a worker.

Pros

Friendly environment

Cons

Sometimes the large amount of children could be overwhelming to look after

Poor Management

Poor management but a lot of experience is gained from this workplace. You are subject to lay-offs should a pool capacity not be optimal for employment without notice (from experience). Seen lots in aquatics. No benefits for part-time staff. Great job for high school students but they tend to treat adults like teens as a result. You are required to spend 15 mins prior to your shift and can be asked to stay 15 mins after without pay to help set-up/clean-up.

good leadership, cohesive culture

management team effective and cohesive, past CEO was troubling, new CEO is promising. Staff resources are tight in many areas making workplace stress common, but manageable.

Good for a summer job

Full time hours and overtime available sometimes. Management was pretty bad and no supervisors seemed to know what was going on half the time. Overall it was okay, good for a summer or two but not forever

s h i t salaries.

the earnings depend on how many ads get distributed, so it's highly unstable. Highest I got was $80 in 3 weeks, lowest was $30.. Don't notify you of which houses to skip, so you end up getting yelled at by annoyed residents

Don't work as a lifeguard

Management is extremely disrespectful, condescending and sexist. Swim instructors are treated very poorly both by management and student parents. Underpaid. Work elsewhere.

Fun workplace if you enjoy children

Working with children is quite fun, staff aren't always pleasant, but the CEO knows what they're doing, and are always aware of the children's safety, would recommend!

very poor management decisions in past several years. Distinct lines of pyramid authority with no crossing of lines, communication allowed

Good pay and benefits for full time employees. Numerous terminations by Management of full time staff over past several years. Termination agreement's don't allow for any detailed disclosure of the hidden secret Management operations over the years withheld from the public.

Pros

Great salary and benefits

Cons

Can't trust anyone

Uplifting work environment

The Town of Richmond Hill, is quite the entertaining work environment. Unlike most jobs, the day to day agenda varies. It was stressed by management that customers were a priority and efficient and appropriate customer service was the key to success.

Excellent Job Culture and Flexible Hours

I do many thinks at the pool, the to main and obvious things I do are to prevent accidents/treat them, and to teach children, adults, toddlers how to be comfortable in the water and how to swim. On a Regular Lifeguard shift, we would always arrive 20min early to prepare for the swim to take place, same goes for instructionals. Everyone treats each other as an equal and is it very fun working in the atmosphere the pool provides. The most difficult part of the job has to be the communication and patience with smaller children and there ability to swim. Some kids are more difficult to deal with than others but at the very end of the day, they are learning new things and are being motivated to be active. Management is amazing, very easy to talk to and if we have any concerns, they take the right actions and ensure that it will meet up to the persons expectation.

Pros

Amazing Staff, and Free Food

Cons

Alot of short shifts

Relaxed enviornment, no pressure

A very relaxed environment. Typical day includes complaining about how overworked we are (which isn't the case). Inside workers not unionized but are still lazy. Often get free lunches charged to the tax payers ;-)
