fun easy going group
its a good group of people at TON every one works together and gets the job done. the hours are odd due to the nature of community activities (early as 5 am and as late as 2 am)

very nice people and fun job
I really enjoyed my time at the Town of Newmarket. The people there are always friendly and the other employees are great. This job is not super stressful but really demands that you know what you are doing (ex. you have significant experience in what you are teaching).

Don't like someone out of their band
Very selfish and don't let the new employees contribute to projects. People close to the retirement age want to have full control over everything to keep their job secure.
Cons
Very lazy, most of the time work from home with different excuses.

Amazing workplace with great people.
Overall working as a lifeguard and swim instructor for the Town of Newmarket is one of the best jobs you can have. You develop many skills throughout your time working there such as customer service, team management, and problem-solving. Working with many different children and adults every day helps you learn new ways to interact with people and keep them motivated by doing their tasks. You learn new strategies and methods to make sure everyone is happy in your class and doing the best they can do. One of the best parts of working as a lifeguard and swim instructor for the Town of Newmarket is the new friends you meet. Almost everybody I worked with was easily approachable and brought a good environment to the workplace. This made me enjoy coming to work because I knew I would be with positive people. The hardest part of working with the Town of Newmarket was since it was a physical job it would get hard on your body at times. However, the supervisors were very understanding and give you breaks if you couldn't handle all the physical stress. Overall, an amazing place to work, would recommend 100%
Pros
workplace environment
Cons
physically taxing

Lifeguarding in Newmarket is good
Not the best management in terms of hours. The part-time job rate was really good. No need for experience to get hired which was huge as you start at a decently high rate.

Good Job; Advancement is null
Good job as part time. Other staff are friendly and generally a good work environment. Hiring practices are slightly unfair. It's all about who you know and not the skills or experience you have.
Pros
Good frontline staff; Training opportunities; Cheap fitness membership
Cons
No advancement opportunities; a bit gossipy (management)

A great place to grow
This is a great place to learn, and experience different roles & to grow both personally and professionally. I was able to start with summer camps, work with preschool students, teens and young adults, and persons with disabilities. I have experienced and learned many things! Highly recommend becoming apart of the TON team.

friendly, great job to have
- show up 15 min before the program starts
- check wristbands and talk to the customers

- the job has taught me how to be more assertive when needed

- the workplace is very friendly, gained lots of friends

- hardest part is when nobody else seems to know how to do their job os I end up being the one giving first aid and filling out incident reports whenever there is a problem

- best part about the job is that it is pretty laid back, not a lot of injuries occur often.

The very nice place to work
I am very pleased with the work atmosphere in the Town of Newmarket.
Good management, friendly environment with the professional staff.

The only disadvantage is the salary which is too low for the experienced professional staff.
