  • Dates of Employment Commitment: May 1 – Sept 31st.
  • Lifeguard expectations: https://a-beautifulpools.com/lifeguard-staff-member-info/employment-opportunities/. 
  • They will attend an onsite orientation at their assigned pool in April/May.

  • Contract – 2024 Operations Manual. This was provided to your child at lifeguard class, and they sign then. This can be accessed on Paycom.

Training

  • Class registration link: https://a-beautifulpools.com/lifeguard-staff-member-info/lifeguard-classes/
  • At class they will be tested on pre-requisite skills that include a brick test, laps, and CPR testing on adult and child. They will also be given a written test. We offer testing accommodations that mirror what your child is offered in school. Please do not be afraid to ask. Give us a call in the office and we can go over accommodations for your child.
  • They will be provided continuous training throughout the season via weekly in-service at their pools. The In-service schedule will be available soon – check back soon.
  • We will keep the lifeguarding certificate on file until the end of summer. The employee was charged a cheaper “employee” price for the lifeguarding class because you were applying for employment with A-Beautiful Pools. We will email the certification to any school/camp entity that is necessary if you provide the information for the entity in writing to office@a-beautifulpools.com. If for some reason you would like the card early at any point in the summer, you must pay the “non-employee” rate at the time of the request. The cost is $50.00. At the end of the summer, we will email your card to the employees email address on file.

  • Clock In: Our lifeguards use  Time Tracker 365 to clock in and out. www.timetracker365.com. If the app is not working for any reason , please have them use the “call in” system. This info is posted at the pool , and on pg. 20 of the Employee Manual in Paycom.
  • Getting More Hours: Every lifeguard has a home pool that they will get the majority of their hours . They have the option to SUB at different pools around their neighborhood/area if they want more hours. They can check postings at the pools around them and reach out to their supervisor.

Schedules

  •  Time Off Forms are sent from their Supervisors to your lifeguard every two weeks and are due promptly to avoid being scheduled at a time when they are not able to work!
  •  If a lifeguard does not complete a form we will either schedule them when they are needed and they may need to get subs, or not schedule them resulting in no hours.
  • We will also begin the process of reaching out to parents if we do not get a response!
  • If lifeguards are scheduled when they cannot work (as they have a conflict that comes up after they complete the form) then the lifeguard will be responsible for finding the sub for that shift.
