The city of Glendale’s public facilities, recreation and special events department is in search of its summer squad as they prepare to fully staff the city’s pools.
As the city prepares for the triple-digit heat later this year, recruitment is already underway for staff members to join the team. Positions include pool cashier ($15 per hour), lifeguard ($25), swim instructor ($26), head guard ($26.50), assistant pool manager ($27) and pool manager ($28).
“Since the very beginning of COVID, there has been a lifeguard shortage nationally,” Glendale Senior Recreation Coordinator Dean Kinnoin shared in a statement. “Because of this, we have struggled to fully open our aquatic centers. With this aggressive approach, we now have the ability to offer competitive wages to get the best of the best, in hopes we can open both of our aquatic centers simultaneously for the entirety of the summer season.”
