I had a great experience working for the city of ottawa. There is room to grow as well, if you work hard and are responsible you can be a headguard. The pay is better than most other pool as well.

This was volunteer work for me so I can't speak to the pay and benefits portion but from what I can tell from the people that were employed, it seemed pretty good. Management was great, loved the atmosphere. I enjoyed teaching the kids and being a camp counselor.

I enjoyed my job, my head guard was very nice, and they made sure we also felt secure and like we had backup while teaching. The job was very enjoyable and fun.

I loved working for the city. The managers were kind and compassionate. I loved teaching the kids, answering the phone and being on deck. I love swimming myself, so I enjoyed being by the pool side.

The City of Ottawa provides a safe work environment with much training and opportunity to offer feedback to management. This job encourages individuals to increase the amount of certifications they hold and encourages leadership training.

Although the City Of Ottawa is an amazing company to work with to get guaranteed hours and access to on-site benefits, the management leaves something to be desired as they do not act with their employee's best interest at heart.

Great for a high school job or to get through university but hours are limited and there is no minimum shift length so you can be asked to come in for one hour which sucks. Pay is also not very good since minimum wage went up and the city did not increase wages at all.

No work day is typical - while there are regularities, there is always a new experience to be had. It's never boring, there are always tasks to be performed and patrons/clients to get to know.

Apart from it being the perfect student job due to the flexible hours, there is the fact that part-time staff aren't allowed to work enough hours (up to 24). In the current economy, this isn't sustainable.
Points positifs
Flexible work hours, paid recertifications, fun and exciting work environment
Points négatifs
Not enough work hours, current wages don't match qualification requirements

I worked programs with the city such as soccer,hockey and other activities. I was then offered a job at a pool. My first 3 months were good then my boss went crazy and started over demanding. I do not recommend working more than 2 shifts a week.
Points positifs
Money
Points négatifs
Very tiring

withing the city of ottawa, specifically being a lifeguard and swim instructor was a good job when i was 16-18. As i got older i was primarily working with younger people which created a very isolated work environment.
Management was young adults who often didn't know how to act appropriatly in the work place and towards the people "working" for them.

The job paid well however there are two different rates for lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons. if you are interested in teaching swimming lessons you are looking at working only evenings and weekends.

The lifeguard/swim instructor position offers a lot of good hours and flexible scheduling for a student who wants to work. Getting paid above minimum wage for fun work with like-minded young adults is great.

Having to stay attentive and make responsible choices to prevent injury is the most important aspect to my job. Dealing with customer service issues and customer service payments and registrations.

Working as a lifeguard for the City of Ottawa provided me with extensive team working skills as well as building my personal leadership skills. My employers and supervisors were always helpful and always supported me and it was a very fun place to work. The staff were amazing.

Start it with the city during the summer session. I love it and decide it to stay on for the fall. Depending the pool you work at, it is a little family and teach you how to be confidence on your job. They are very strick on your training has you must stay in shape to be able to do your job well. In services are every months, so if you miss one, you have to find another one to go. The hardest part of the job is to en force the rules. Had to explain even if their child is taking swimming classes, they still need to stay at arms reach has an example (orange bracelet). The program coordinator is there to help you but do what he/she said.

Other then that, free recert and encourage to get more advanced qualification like NLS instructor or so.
Points positifs
Great staff, supportive, etc...
Points négatifs
Shift depends on senority, if hired in the summer months and want to work in the fall they have to reactivate you manual
