Seasonal Employment With Parks & Recreation

Seasonal Employment with Parks & Recreation

Get a jump start on finding summer employment!

The City’s Parks & Recreation Department application process for seasonal positions is open.

For lifeguards, competitive wages start at $10/hour and previous lifeguard experience is not required. Parks & Recreation offers a Lifeguard Certification Course for $100 (the average cost is $225-265). Additionally, all staff who work through the end of the pool season, attend the pre-season staff meetings and complete 100% of the in-service training sessions receive an incentive bonus.

If lifeguarding isn’t for you, there are seasonal positions available with our tennis, facilities or parks staff. To make this process easier, Parks & Recreation staff are hosting walk-in interviews for lifeguards, tennis court workers and pool office workers on the following dates and times:

  • Tuesday, March 10: 9 am-Noon
  • Monday, March 23: 9-11 am & 1-3 pm
  • Friday, April 10: 9-11 am & 1-3 pm

All interviews are located at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road. No appointment necessary. You can apply online in advance or fill out your application when you arrive for your interview.
