swim instructor lifeguard interview questions shared by candidates
previous experience that's related to the position what's your strategy for guarding? What would you do if a parent keeps asking you questions and won't let you leave to teach the next class?
this makes no sense, and it shows that your supervisor/manager and or director, do not have the backs of the front line employees; this is their job to deal with the issues of parents and to get their employees back to the pool so that they can do their job. If a supervisor/manager is not paying attention then it's their own fault on these situations because a good-great supervisor would have stepped in and taken the time to address the situation while the employee was able to get back to work. Also, there is 'time & place' and either the city wants to provide parents the time to speak with guards (paid time outside of teaching/pool time) or they don't...I think they don't want to pay lifeguards for this additional time/effort and that is just a negative & toxic work environment.
