How will your work schedule and location be determined?

Your work schedule is based on your availability.  When you are hired, you will fill out your Availability Calendar in which you will X through any days that you are not able to work.  You will also include whether you want to work Part Time (10-20 hours/week) or Full Time (20-40 hours) per week.

We will assign you to a specific pool for the season.  The pool location is determined by your physical home address but will typically be no further away that 10-15 miles.  We have approximately 70 locations in 6 different counties where we staff lifeguards.  We staff approximately 10 locations for Gate Attendant positions.

NEW Guards:  Your first step is to complete a job application.  Once the application is received, we will contact you for an interview.


RETURNING GUARDS:  Even if you worked for us last summer, you still need to re-apply.  You do not need to come in for another interview.
