    I worked at Wet ‘n Wild

    Pros

    mixed would be the word is used to describe this job, your fellow workmates are normally really good, it turns into a big fa amity after a few weeks so everyone gets along really well, a fast paced day is a good day, but quiet ones can also be good, very multicultural so you meet heaps of different people.

    Cons

    Wasn't overall positive for me, some bosses are hard to get along with, logic doesn't exist within the workplace, long days you are expected to work 10 hours regularly everyday and adding travel time it's quite taxing. Underpaid, as a lifeguard I expect 22ph minimum, you get $17 - $19ph. Breaks are short and unpaid, bosses do play favourites, making it tough to progress and they expect to much for to little. Amd the water was cold, so when it got coldie was horrible to work in.
