Lifeguard and Swim Instructor

June - August 2019 • Brookings, OR

What I liked

I was able to be responsible, teach little kids, learn life savings skills, be in the sun, be at the same job as my friends, and have a nice job worth of summer experience.

What I wish was different

I wish my co-workers were more responsible. They were mostly high schoolers but they could be reckless, neglectful, and disrespectful.

Advice

I think the skills learned as a lifeguard are very valuable; not only life savings, but also professionalism, cool under pressure, responsibility, patience, long suffering and preparedness. I think everyone should either be a lifeguard at some point or gain the skills of one at one point in their lifetime.
