Great to do a job that makes a real difference
Great place to work. Joined after moving to area and breath of fresh air to work somewhere safe, and with flexible working . Recently had some some difficult family issues and team and manager have been great; really makes a difference. Nice job and nice to feel you make a difference to something worthwhile!

Crews do amazing work saving lives, bullying culture to paid staff by managers
Would got out sooner but had bills to pay. Managers bully staff and fight between themselves. The volunteers on the coast do an amazing job but don't go for a paid job here unless your desperate.

Excellent job
Great job as a lifeguard but only seasonal. Enjoy being outside and working with some great people. Can be boring at times but also very exciting at other times. Very worthwhile job.

Productive, Interesting and Fast Paced work place on busy days
The job is a diverse experience within days, switching pace sometimes in hours. The pay is fair and the work place can take interesting turns throughout the day.

A good employer if you get the right manager
Sometimes they avoid responsibilities but overall a great place to work. After almost 20 years service, I was let down. But on the whole it is a good employer.
