How to become a lifeguard

Lifeguard
Each spring we hire multiple staff to operate Memorial Pool during the summer months.  If you are interested in working at our pool we have a couple of options:
  • Cashier – This position handles all financial transactions at the front desk of the pool. 
  • Lifeguard – This position requires a current Lifeguarding Certification.
  • Instructor Guard – This position requires a current Lifeguarding and a Swim America Certification.
  • Head Guard – This position works in a leadership role by overseeing other lifeguards.  It requires at least one year of experience as a lifeguard and a current Lifeguarding Certification.  It is also preferred that they have their Swim America Certification.
  • Pool Manager – This position manages the operations at the pool and requires at least two years experience as a lifeguard.  This position requires a current Lifeguarding and a Swim America Certification.  It is also preferred that they have their Lifeguard Instructor Certification.
If you are interested in one of these positions:
  • Go to Human Resources to apply 
  • Indicate the position you are interested in
  • List any certifications that you currently hold that apply  (If the position you are interested in requires a certification you are expected to obtain this certification on your own) 
We are usually able to offer a Life Guard Training class in early summer, however taking this class does not guarantee you a job.  You will need to apply for the position you are interested in and go through the screening process.
