Just curious if any of you Bees have ever been a lifeguard or are currently a lifeguard? Whether it was part-time as a student/summers/ or its your career. I know there is a huge difference from a local hotel pool to the Ocean, but I would love to have your opinion!
We live in a year round aquatic friendly place and I have a girlfriend who Lifeguards and loves it! I’m just curious if others had have similar experiences!

I was a summer lifeguard at a pool for 4 years (manager, yet still guarding, for a couple of those years). I LOVED it for the most part. Sure, some of the patrons could be a PITA, but it was a fun, yet serious, job. I gained a lot of people skills and responsibility.

I was a summer lifeguard at a pool for 7 summers. I also taught swimming lessons and lifeguarded open lap swim at college for a few years. I loved it. It was a great summer job. I really hope my future children like swimming and will be interested in going that route.

Awesome! I notice many people also teach swimming lessons as well. We have some companies that pay big bucks to do private home lessons as well as lifeguard private pool parties.
Wow 7 summers! Its also cool you could use your skills to get a pretty sweet college job gig!
