The parks department is actively recruiting and training candidates age 15 and up, and they emphasize that minimum wage is now $20 per hour, lifeguards get free training and a free uniform, and there's a $400 training stipend for staff who complete a certain number of work hours during the swim season. Staff also get a free Cap Metro pass. Apply now to start working or training for summer now.
