It is a good company to work for especially if u are a health conscious person and when you know that one always has to feel good about themselves and that not taking good care of oneself can lead to dangerous diseases, Good co-workers ,lovely place to spend the whole day

I learnt that a team and not an individual makes a success of the work environment. A day was full of many but small activities which have to be completed timeously. the company was still new so management was still also finding its footing in terms of placing procedures and protocols. The ing the extra hardest part was putting in the extra hours in order to make money for myself. sometimes I will have work 24 hours non stop only to rest for a few hours to return to work. I thoroughly enjoyed the free workout
Pros
you get to be fit and healthy for free
Cons
long hour shifts

A typical day at work would be having the privelage of teaching people how to swim . i learnt to have alot more patience with certain people . i hardly saw any of the management staff . my co-workers were awesome , fun to work with , and helped me alot . I would say the hardest part of the job was job security , and a commision based salary . The most enjoyable part of this job , having fun in the water .
Pros
i love sport in general so this job was fun
Cons
job security, pay
