LIFEGUARD TRYOUT DAY FOR 2015 SUMMER EMPLOYMENT

March 7, 2015 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Palm Park Aquatic Center

If we have harsh weather conditions (thunder/lightening), the pool portion of the skills test will be rescheduled for Sunday, March 8, however we will still conduct portions of the tryouts on March 7, 2015.

Participants need to be currently certified in American Red Cross Lifeguarding, First Aid, and CPR/AED and bring copies of their valid certificates.

Prior Registration for the Tryout Day is required and there is no charge to attend.  Those who successfully pass the lifeguarding skills assessments and swim tests will be scheduled to participate in the interview selection process.

Because of the City’s nepotism policy, applicants cannot be related to anyone currently working at the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department.  The City of Whittier is not able to hire an applicant who is related to another applicant applying for the position of Lifeguard.
