Need a summer job?
The Prince William County Department of Parks and Recreation is looking for lifeguards for the summer, and is hosting a hiring event on May 31 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The event will be held at Splashdown Waterpark at 7500 Ben Lomond Park Road in Manassas.
“We’re looking for a well-rounded candidate that is looking for a chance to work in a fun atmosphere, that’s willing to be a part of team, that wants to be outside in the summer, that wants to have fun and just wants to have a good time,” stated Department of Parks and Recreation Aquatics Specialist II Kat Fish in a release.
To work as a lifeguard for the department, you must be 15 years or older and come to the event with the job application prepared. There will also be an interview and swim test for applicants. Those who perform well in the interview and the swim test – which typically includes swimming 200 yards, getting a 10 pound brick out of 12-feet of water, and treading for two minutes – will be considered for the position, according to a release.
