Lifeguard Jobs Open at Gateway
Each summer the National Park Service employs over 125 lifeguards to guard the swimming beaches at several sites within the Gateway National Recreation Area, including Jacob Riis Park. Recruitment for lifeguard positions begins during the winter when pre-employment tests, which are designed to measure an applicant's swimming and running ability, are given.
"With Gateway's beaches open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, these lifeguard positions offer a great opportunity to learn a new skill at some of the most beautiful beaches in the Metropolitan Area. Combined with excellent pay and earned time-off, it's a great way to spend the summer," said Barry Sullivan, Gateway's General Superintendent.
There are currently several test dates from which applicants can select beginning in January and continuing through April. For a complete list of testing locations and basic requirements, call 800-678-7946.
