City of Phoenix Offers $2,500 Incentive to Lifeguardshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/2258Parks and Recreation3/3/2022 7:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2258/Lifeguards-Newsroom-Header.pngCity of Phoenix Offers $2,500 Incentive to Lifeguards<div class="ExternalClass420612C982CC43A7BD945F5E255A5601"><html> The City of Phoenix is taking "Make a Splash, Earn Some Cash" to another level by offering  $2,500 in incentive pay to certified lifeguards. ​<br><br>People who become certified lifeguards, work the entire summer and finish in good standing are eligible for the money. It'll start with a $500 payment on the first paycheck and the remaining $2,000 as a one-time payment at the end of the 2022 pool season. The Parks and Recreation department will also pay $100 to existing employees who refer a person that completes their lifeguard certification and signs up for employment. <br><br><p><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">The Parks and Recreation Department needs to hire hundreds of lifeguards ahead of the 2022 pool season to safely open as many of the city's 29 public pools as possible.</span>​<br></p><p><em>“This is a serious job that's crucial to child safety. Lifeguards save the lives of hundreds of children and are also responsible for thousands of swim lessons every summer</em>," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. <em>“This incentive is an investment in child safety in the immediate and long term, likely saving lives directly and indirectly</em>." </p><p>The $2,500 incentive pay reimburses individuals for the cost and time spent obtaining the lifeguard certification and, when combined with the base hourly rate of $14.02/hour, equates to an estimated hourly wage of $21.00/hour*.  </p><p>The incentive pay is also applicable to assistant pool managers and pool managers, positions that require a lifeguard certification.  </p><p>Hiring is in <strong><em>crunch time</em></strong> and certification classes have already begun and are available for registration at multiple locations through March. Lifeguards must complete the necessary training during the scheduled class times.</p><p><em>“</em><em>As Chair of the City's Community & Cultural Investment Subcommittee, I want to thank our Parks & Recreation Department for taking proactive steps following our March meeting,"</em> said Phoenix Councilwoman Betty Guardado. “<em>Incorporating the committee's feedback surrounding incentive pay will help address staffing shortages and ensure Phoenix residents have access to City operated pools."</em></p><p>​​Benefits of being a lifeguard: <br></p><ol><li>$2,500 incentive pay</li><li>$14.02 an hour base pay</li><li>Learn lifesaving skills</li><li>Work in your neighborhood</li><li>Keep your community safe and be a role model for kids</li><li>Looks great on a college application or resume, demonstrates teamwork, responsibility, and leadership skills</li><li>Meet other dedicated people</li><li>Flexible summer shifts, ideal for students</li><li>Have fun!</li></ol><p>StarGuard Training for lifeguard certification is required to become a lifeguard with the City of Phoenix.
