Pool manager

June - August 2021 • Springfield, MA

What I wish was different

Advice

People might try to scare you away from this job by mentioning how dangerous the location is, but we had no instances of violence all summer. Another nearby facility, which I will not name, is reported to have had over 13 fights this season, some of which involved DCR employees. Springfield pool is plenty safe.

What I liked

I liked everything about it. The atmosphere with my colleagues and my bosses were incredible. Plus I got to be at the beach all day 5 days a week.

What I wish was different

Nothing I would not have changed anything about my experience.

Advice

This job is not easy, it’s ACTUAL lifeguarding. You do have to make rescues and this job is not for people that are not in good shape. It is physically tiring (lots of running and swimming)
