Tough experience, builds character
Lifeguard (Ancien employé) – Vaughan, ON – 30 août 2019
Working as a lifeguard at Canada’s Wonderland is a good opportunity to earn a significant amount of money over the summer, however, working 5 days a week for 8 or more hours a day will quickly take over your social life. You will learn on the job and be taught by your coworkers, so expect to be clueless for the first couple of days. Your teams leads are your friends, so come to them with any questions you may have. Supervision is generally irritable and unhelpful so expect some attitude and make sure you keep your cool when dealing with them. Some days are alright, others will make you wonder why you even bother coming to work. As the season begins to end, your shifts will be especially hard with slow rotations and short breaks. Don’t quit because if you can last a entire summer here, you’ll be prepared for pretty much anything. I would recommend any high schooler looking for a summer job to apply here because the experience is so bad that it’s good, as in it helps you grow as a person. You’ll find that by the end of the summer, you’ve grown to be more resilient and calm. For post-secondary students, I wouldn’t recommend this job as you’ll likely find the way you are treated to be childish and insulting, especially when your supervisions are around the same age as you. Overall, this job will be infuriating at times, and you’ll want to quit almost as soon as you start, but if you can push through, it can be a great learning experience and good opportunity to save some money and gain some experience.
Good pay for a summer job
Supervision is unhelpful and arrogant
