Continental pools, Waltham, Massachusetts, Work Abroad

Wage per hour : 9 Number of hours per week : 50 Average tips : Considering that you have the whole day, at the pool, you have plenty of time to get to know new people and get some contacts . The employer is really good and respects all . Salary was never late and always paid as many hours as you are really doing. Business does not require excessive physical activity you are capable of doing anything else after this. But the company requires a high level of professionalism , which is why it is among the best , as to the rescuers.

Continental Pools, Annapolis, Maryland, Work Abroad

Hours : Regular time: 7.25 $ . Over time: 10,875 $ Number of hours per week : 58 Average tip : A single tip was checked at the end of the season from 100 $ from a family with two beautiful children who regularly visited the pool throughout the year. When you come to work primarily for inclocking (who understands will understand)! ;) Then comes the opening of the pool, check the pump, and the levels of chemicals in water and, if necessary, adding them. Cleaning the pool surface and depth. Cleaning toilets and dressing room. Littering. Setting board for registration and check-out guests. Opening the gates. To all this got to do the job you need to come earlier, and this time you also paid. After opening routine, the job boils down to a classic guarding, and checking levels of chemicals in the water every hour. When a guest is no, then you are on holiday, sunbathing and swimming to the full! After the end of the shift, closing routine is more or less the same as the opening routine, which does not do evening awaits you in the morning, so ... Earnings were 7.25 usd the first 40 working hours per week and every hour over the 40 th payable 10,875 usd to the end of the seventh day, and then it starts from the beginning. As for the number of hours, it was Sunday when I had barely 42h, but it was Sunday when I was over 73h, so my average for each week of the season at the end amounted to 58h. Salary is paid on two weeks and the same is dismissed accommodation which is on a daily basis was 14 usd. When the same company in question, again nothing but praise! Vice President Nick Terrebrood is a remarkable man. Works like a machine! And, if necessary, climbs into the chair Lifeguard personally! For him to each of our employer could see. When you see how people here do understand why they are where they are, and we are where we are. What I would point out first of all and that is related to this company is the fact that everyone here is busy doing it from the bottom . Of course, not everything is so rosy and shiny. And here, as in every other What I would point out first of all and that is related to this company is the fact that everyone here is busy doing it from the bottom . Of course, not everything is so rosy and shiny. And here, as in every other institution that is growing and developing at this pace , there are problems , but certainly not like those you encounter when you are doing something at home in Serbia. To be honest at this agency , this job and this company, will appeal only to people who have never nothing tablespoons weight raised , ie . who never did nothing in my life before this job , so spoiled and bored nothing to do and to have someone to do more and wages. The second type of people who can appeal to those who live under the illusion that in America to get rich in less than three months. If you do not belong to one of these two groups , surely awaits an unforgettable year!

Continental Pools, Virginia beach, VA, Work Abroad

Houtly rate: $ 7.25, overtime 10,875 Number of hours per week: 58 on average :) Average tip (week): Just once, at a party $ 50 :) Every day you are the one who does opening and cleaning of the pool, while the rest of the day is spent in the chair (you must be rescue ready , therefore, no mobile, walking and absence from work place while the visitors are in the water) :) Rescuers job is to prevent an incident to occur (reminding visitors that running is not allowed, if its a shallower pool - no jumping, children must be supervised by parents) rather than saving lives. What I was interested before i left to the USA were experiences of recsuers, did they had a crisis situation. I have several times thrown rescue tube in order to help the children that I saw that were tired of swimming (therefore, nothing dangerous, I just wanted to make sure that everything is fine), I jumped because of the child that had ground under its feet, but got panicked, and "most terrible" case, the baby in the company of an older sister who rolled into the water along with the inflatable mattress... I was in a second in the water with the baby in my hands, they say that I really quickly responded :) It is necessary to implement control of passes for pool chemicals are controled every hour (for me this whole season was interesting: D, I even gave the kids watch how I do it, it was interesting for them to see how colors are changeing ). First aid (learn all about it in training - from which I carry the most wonderful memories, lot of fun and laughter in the camp * who you visit before the season starts) :) Supervisors and regional manager at VA beach are phenomenal people (during preparations for the program, I imagined as supervisors of malice are hiding behind the bushes, waiting for every mistake, and it turned out to be our best friends there, ready to help us, and teach us the instructions). The guys are all from Serbia, which is somewhat easier to cooperate with them :) All praise to Mark, Sasha, Stefan and Miloš :) Salaries are arriving on time, with the first checks they did not took our rent money so that we can stand on our feet as sooner as posible. The company provides luxury apartments (ours was beautiful, and while this is the city where I worked) :) 6 roommates in a three-room apartment with a large terrace, 2 bathrooms, dining room, living room, kitchen, beautiful :) It is true that you use apartment only for sleep over (and organize wild parties), but it is important that you feel happy when you come into your home (I loved the whole town, really great place) :) the positive side of this job is that over time you meet the people who come to the pool and you can create wonderful friendships (if I go back to the USA, I will visit the friends I have made in VA beach definitely) they are offering you food that they bring or make at the pool (there is usually a place for a barbecue at the pool) :) what is wonderful is complexion at the ennd of the season (we were all much more beautiful in the end, hahaha): D * Camp is a special story that absolutely, and indeed as the whole experience depends on the attitude and expectations of the individual. A military camp in the middle of the forest which once again passing the entire training, eating a large common canteen and sleeping in rooms with about 20 beds and a shared bathroom for boys and girls. Although conditions are not a fairy tale, I have spent a wonderful 48 hours of pure laughter with other people, wonderful friendships: D I thought it was wonderful, I ran in the rain, play basketball, play with dolls on which it is practiced CPR: D If you are interested in anything, I'll be happy to answer any questions :)

$ 7.25 per hour , 10 $ overtime. Do not expect to get rich as saviors . It will be enough for an apartment, food , shopping and travel when you're done with the job. Me more than enough .

I can not complain . It is eight and a half hours a day , weekends and after nine . There are not many job - clean the pool, checking E .. chemicals that can be very boring, especially when there are no people , and then pray to God to be who comes to bathe . Or you simply jump into pool .
