Lifeguarding: the quintessential summer job. Perched on a stand towering over the water or seated at the guard office welcoming swimmers in. Most people are familiar with the masses that make up this ever-popular trade, but few realize what the work actually entails.
Here’s a deep dive into the world of Mitsis Lifeguards, our hotel heroes and all they do to guarantee we can have fun in the sun.
While everyone is having fun splashing away the heat, there is a team of people behind the scenes keeping everyone safe: Mitsis Hotels’ lifeguards. Sporting perfect tans, red life preservers, and a big smile, they are hard to miss as they keep a watchful eye over the guests enjoying their day.
Like any other job, lifeguarding can teach you important lessons and fundamental skills that you won’t be able to learn anywhere else. “Lifeguarding has taught me how to better communicate with both kids and adults especially in situations where, for example, they could be doing something dangerous and don’t understand how they’re breaking the rules,” says one of our hotel heroes. “I’ve also learned how to handle a position that requires lots of responsibility and authority which can be a lot to adjust to as a teenager.” Another guard speaks to the value of hard work: “I’ve learned that there’s a difference between just doing your job and doing MORE than your job. Those who do even a little bit more than they have to are always recognized and I’ve learned to always strive to do more than I have to. While lifeguarding may just be a summer job for some, the lessons imparted and the experiences had will stick with you for a lifetime.
Our Mitsis Lifeguards are always there for you to guarantee you are having safe and delightful holidays while swimming in our Blue Flag crystal clear waters or stunning and refreshing pools!
So, let us express our sincere gratitude and mention their name below as the least we can do.
