    Pros

    CPR training and discipline

    Causes high level of stress. Employers and Team leads are not trained properly to handle tense situations and they treat the Lifeguards like rag dolls.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to your employees and treat them with respect. But also, the Boysenberry soda is amazing!
