Our Core Values We Provide to our Staff: Autonomy Mastery Purpose

Dear Lifeguard Job Applicants of Happy Swimmers,

The summer season is approaching, and I am currently looking to hire highly competent, personable private event lifeguards with strong safety backgrounds in each metro region we serve. If you’ve seen our ads, we serve your metro area, or simply check out our website for a list of metro’s we’re in.

Filling out the lifeguard job application online here should take about 20 minutes. You’ll want to scan copies of your relevant certification cards, and have past employer info and references handy. Here’s more info on our company: Happy Swimmers has been the cream of the crop since 1991. We hire the best and pay the best of any swim company: $75 for up to 3 hours, $25/hr thereafter, plus client cash tips for great service. We intend to have a small, responsive staff, working part-time to your schedule, take as many or few client gigs as you wish. Being your own boss (an independent contractor in tax terms), you can deduct all business expenses you have as a result of lifeguarding with us (gas, mileage, a portion of your car insurance, car payments, car maintenance, etc.) on a “Schedule C” for taxes, yay!

I look forward to your lifeguard job application and best wishes for the summer and beyond,

Jenn Tyler

Owner/Director

Base pay to our lifeguards is at the following rate:

$25 per hour, 3 hour minimum- the highest pay in the industry! All pay is pre-tip. Many clients tip for great service. The more top notch you are out there, the more it’s generally rewarded. Have fun!

Certifications

For Swim Instructors: You must provide a scanned or photo copy of current, non expired CPR certification to be considered for a position. First Aid cert is a plus but not required. CPR Certification must be from an authorized "hands on" class. Online only classes are scams and not acceptable. American Health Care Academy $19.95 online certs are just one of the common worthless scams, sorry.

Attach your relevant certs as image files like .jpg etc. PDF's do not come through on our end. Idea: take a picture of your cert cards with your cell phone and attach.
