Work at the Pool
Come Work at the Pool
Sleepy Hollow Community Pool will soon be interviewing and hiring lifeguards. We will be staffing the pool for Summer Season 2023, opening for Family Swim on May 27. We are happy to report that we have an excellent Guard Manager already on board. Long-time Sleepy Hollow resident, Colleen Bertiglia has joined the team and will be hiring and managing the guards schedules and procedures to assure swimmer’s safety and smooth operations at the pool.
The lifeguard pay scale ranges from $16-$20/hour based on experience and job scope. Interested candidates, please click here to access the application and a list of job responsibilities, then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Diane Fiddyment or Colleen will be in touch promptly.
We are glad to have some guards returning, but we are also looking to build our staff by hiring new guards who will develop their skills and be able to work through their high school and college years. Sleepy Hollow offers a friendly environment and the opportunity to take on more responsibilities as you gain valuable experience. All guards must have a current Red Cross Certificate in life saving and first aid. Certification classes are available at the Marin JCC, Terra Linda Community Center through San Rafael, and at the College of Marin, including weekend classes. Let us know if we can help navigate your certification. We offer scholarships if you commit to working the season.
We are also seeking:
Guards who can work once school starts back in August. We’d like to keep the pool open as much as possible in the hot days of late August and September. Since many of our guards are high school students, we need college age guards who start school later or certified adults willing to volunteer to help us keep the pool open.
Younger teens to handle member check-in, snack bar transactions, and logo merchandise sales. In years past, this has been a path to lifeguarding for some, and for all a chance to take responsibility and meet members. Note—we know we over-hired last year. This year we will hire the right number of kids so that all get enough hours of work.
Monitors to be on deck during lap swim hours. Help us keep this new and popular program going. Volunteer now so we can produce a dependable adult lap swim schedule for March, April, and May.
