Amazing work environment and employees
Lifeguard/Swimming Instructor/Lifesaving and First Aid Instructor (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 22 January 2020
A super supportive work environment, that focuses on team building and self growth. It can take awhile to move up into leadership positions because you need to be able to prove yourself capable of the basics first. All the employees at the Y are like family and are their for each other, which makes up for the pay not being super high. But there are yearly raises, so it is getting higher. Hardest part of the job is working in the evening with some of the more aggressive members, but if you ever feel unsafe there is always a building supervisor who will come and support you. The most enjoyable part is meeting all the different members and learning about them, and working with an incredible group of diverse people who are a great support system. If you are a student this is the job for you, as they recognize how busy their schedule can be, you can work as little as once a week for 2 hours to over 20 hours (if you have some more seniority).
