Flexible seasonal part-time style hours to work gigs that fit your schedule. This is a great second job. Most of the work happens mid-May through August, with some work available in April and September and holidays throughout the year. Secure your slot on our team by interviewing now to start when the season gets going.

LIFEGUARD Requirements:

1. Current lifeguard certification (or up to date before accepting gigs)

2. One summer season or more prior lifeguarding experience.

3. Professional attitude, conscientious.

4. Reliable car, smartphone, e-mail.
