Pool Lifeguard

June 2021 • Raleigh, NC

What I liked

I enjoyed the work environment--my coworkers are super nice and our supervisor was nice, as well as being communicative and flexible with us.

What I wish was different

Nothing that I can think of currently.

Advice

If you're not already certified, and you want to work as a lifeguard over the summer, definitely get started with the certification process as early in the summer as you can. Would also recommend getting certified through the YMCA if you're wanting to lifeguard at a YMCA location.
