Parks and Rec needs a few good lifeguards

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Aquatic Division of Austin Parks and Rec is looking for a few good lifeguards for the summer. It’s not all sun and games, however: Without an uptick in applicants, some of Austin’s pools may not open on time this summer. To tempt more candidates, the lifeguard certification registration fee of $40 will be waived for Hiring Day, and as if that isn’t enough, free pizza and snacks will be provided. Applicants 16 and under must have a parent present while 17-year-olds will need a parent’s signature. All those interested in a summer job as a lifeguard, cashier, swim instructor or swim coach should attend Hiring Day on Tuesday, May 14, 4-8 p.m. at the Aquatics Administration & Training Center, 2818 San Gabriel Street.
