I'm starting my first day as a lifeguard tomorrow (first job) and my boss asked me to come in just under an hour early to go over a few things with regards to lifeguarding at this company. I have already completed the RedCross training, which is required to be a lifeguard and I had to pay for.
Is it typical to be compensated for this kind of out-of-hours training?
Thanks for all your answers, but I have some details I'd like to add:
- This is a small company and we are staffing neighborhood pools. There are only enough people on the clock to staff the pool at the minimum.
- My boss is one of the presidents of the company. He does not clock in for work (according to the scheduling app)
- I also don't want to come off as rude or undesirable.
As lifeguards, we also have in-service training which is paid for. This is not in-service.
