High Sierra Pools, Alexandria, Virginia, AYUSA
Experience with agency AYUSA was positive.
My experience with the agency is very good. Before applying them I was, maybe, a little boring about everything, people had patience and understanding, taking the time to answer my questions :) 100. After logging in, we were regularly informed about everything, about the process and so on.
Experience with location Alexandria, VA was neutral.
The possibility of finding additional work would be moderate for the simple reason that it is difficult to fit due to variable schedules at the pools. My roommate who was a pool manager had no problem doing another job because every week was Tuesday and Wednesday day off, therefore it is easier to say when another employer when you can work safely. Nightlife? In this city there is not, there are no events, etc. Clubs have never interested me.
Experience with employer High Sierra Pools
Hours: 8.50$ 12.75$ Hours per week: 50-52 Average tip (weekly): Frankly, I do not know what I'd written such a good side and that is not considered normal? I mean, salaries were regular, accurate ... I have to mention. But, there is something I can not like it, something that is ruining my desire to go back. These are rainy days. Knowing that the weather is very changeable, we had a considerable number of more rainy days. Whenever it rained, HSP has sent us home and also shortened our hours, which in my opinion is not fair, not my fault that it's raining and I count that hotels ie pools already pre-paid HSP, I see no reason why they sent us home i cut our hours. Division manager, Macedonian, was quite okay to the lifeguard, he was always ready to solve problem without hesitation. Supervisors with whom I had the opportunity were quite fair and correct, very friendly to lifeguards. We had a problem with the apartment, + a month ago we were without air conditioning, the refrigerator was broken long ago, in early August brought us a new one. It is true that the apartments are not owned HSP, but were able to adequately respond to and influence the office building where we were. We were forced to 'threaten' office in that we will be called if the inspection does not repair the refrigerator.
