Thank you for taking the time to learn more about employment opportunities at Guard For Life.

We have been providing quality pool management and lifeguard staffing services for decades.

From the cities to the suburbs, employees are placed in positions of responsibility, in which they can provide a high level of service for guests that deserve a safe place to swim. Our lifeguards serve as role models for the youth in our communities and pride themselves in making a difference.

Guard For Life employees undergo lifeguard training and recertification each year to stress the importance of safety and accident prevention. You will be trained in all aspects of water rescue, first aid, and emergency management. In order to ensure well-educated and well-rounded lifeguards at our facilities, you’ll also receive training in basic leadership skills. We are constantly reinforcing these skills throughout the summer with in-service training. Aquatic emergencies do not happen every day but, in the event that one does occur at your facility, we want you to be completely prepared for any situation. Keeping your skills sharp could change someone’s life forever.

All Guard For Life employees, at every level, focus on customer service. Communication and problem resolution is a key focus, and everyone is involved in the process. This creates a sense of unity and team spirit that is clearly visible whenever customers need us. These are just a few of the things that make Guard For Life a special place to work.
