Dozens of lifeguard positions are still available for students age 16 and older. Applications can be submitted online now at KilleenTexas.gov/Jobs.
The City of Killeen hires lifeguards each year to open pools for the summer swim season. Long Branch Pool will open June 12 and the Family Aquatics Center is scheduled to open in mid-July. Pools stay open through Labor Day.
Lifeguards are an essential part of pool operations because they ensure safety by monitoring swimmers and upholding pool rules. They also assist in pool and facility maintenance.
In addition to gaining valuable work experience this summer, lifeguards earn $9 per hour.
Applicants must be able to pass a swim test to be considered. American Red Cross Lifeguard and Water Park certifications are required by start date, and the City can assist applicants in becoming certified.
A full list of qualifications and responsibilities as well as the application are available at KilleenTexas.gov/Jobs.
