Bonuses to the rescue for lifeguards

Monday, April 25, 2022 by Tai Moses

Those looking for summer lifeguarding jobs in Austin now have an even greater incentive to slap on the sunscreen: a bonus of up to $1,250. Temporary summer camp staffers are in line for up to $750 in bonuses, depending on the position. The Austin Parks and Recreation Department is hoping the offer of extra money will tempt “teenagers, college students, teachers on summer break, and retirees looking for a fun way to earn extra money,” as the announcement says. The pay starts at $15/hour for entry-level positions and increases with experience. Paid sick leave, free bus passes and flexible scheduling are also part of the package. You’ll find all the info you need about the jobs and the bonuses here.
