Lesiure Duty Assistant (Current Employee), Telford, ENG – February 27, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, free access to classes, free access to gym/swimming pool, early finishes at the weekends
Cons: often maximum of three lesiure assistants per shift
Often begin by lifeguarding the pool. Lifeguarding the pool occurs in 15-30minute intervals that are rotated among the Lesiure Assistants. If not lifeguarding it is your repsonsibility to ensure that pools tests are up to date (pH, temperature and chlroine levels), activites are set up e.g football goals ready for a club hiring out the hall or bouncy – more... castle set up for a party, the area is tidy for the public, no rubbish, bins emptied, changing rooms clean and tidy. My favourite part of the job is be able to give gym inductions. Here the users are able to ask questions and I can provide them with answers of their satisfaction. Since working at HLC I have learn't that communication is definitely the most important skill required for this job as it enables fellow peers to understand what tasks need to be accomplished. This job is very flexible as you text when you are available three weeks in advance. If you have any issues there are often two managers on shift that always help with anything you are unsure with or require help with. – less

Hygiene Operative/Cleaner (Former Employee), Spalding – February 10, 2014
Pros: great fun.
Cons: early hours.
Though my hours always started at extremely early hours (3-4am), shifts were usually busy but well paced. I was trained in every area of cleaning, and everyone was kind and understanding; helping me when I slipped up or misunderstood things, and giving me a hand where needed. As I became more accustomed to the job, I was able to return the favour and – more... we all worked together as one big cohesive unit. The hardest part of my job would probably be the hours; I was a good one hour drive away from the store that I was working in, and this meant I'd be rising at 2am at the latest frequently, but again this grew better with time as my body clock readjusted to suit the early hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is hard to distinguish,being that I loved the job itself - I really enjoyed the cleaning!!! At the same time, I loved the people I worked with, and I felt like I was part of a big family. – less
