I’m in the process of becoming a staff member so I can lifeguard at the JCC. A couple of weeks ago, I filled out all of my paperwork. It’s been so long since I started a job, I forgot how much information everyone wants. I updated my resume and provided all of the completed forms.
Today, I met with another staff person to get fingerprinted. It was a cool process as I didn’t even need to get my fingers dirty with ink. Technology has come a long way since I was fingerprinted for volunteering some years ago. Today, my drivers license was scanned and then I pressed down on a little pad that read my fingerprints. The computer told us if they were done properly or not. It took us about 8 tries, but in the end we were successful in submitting them.
Next, I was off to get my drug test done. I wasn’t sure how that was going to go with two kids in tow. We arrived at the clinic office and we were the only ones there. One of the staff people chatted with Nick and Sally while the other one took care of me. It worked out well since I couldn’t take anyone in the room with me.
Hopefully, I’ll get my orientation for lifeguarding within the next week or so. I’ll be put on the sub list and maybe pick up a regular shift as well. I’m hoping that I’ll enjoy it.
