Life Guard Manager

May - August 2018 • Belleville, MI

What I liked

The close-knit nature of the staff, working outdoors, and good hours. I liked being in a position that required responsibility and wasn't as mundane as a normal lifeguard job. Every day gave me something new and unexpected to address.

What I wish was different

The logistics of scheduling and hiring new people. We became short-staffed pretty early on due to poor accommodations for days off. All of our staff consists of 15-22 year olds.

Advice

Don't be afraid to take a position out of your comfort zone, or one that you think you wouldn't be able to pull off. More often than not, you will subconsciously fill the role you were placed in no matter how tough it appears to be. The more responsibility you have will mold you into a more effective and solid person/worker.
