The difference between a pool and beach lifeguard
Every season, around 500 rescuers travel with us to the USA – 50 of them decide to work on the beach. This shows how popular the program is among university students. Our employers are mainly on the east coast of the USA.
The pool lifeguard is responsible for the entire pool as well as for customer satisfaction. Beach lifeguards on the Atlantic coast have more responsible work, therefore they must have outstanding swimming skills and English language skills.
We work with 15 employers that we know personally, thanks to our many years of relationships. Some companies are bigger, others smaller, but don’t worry that you won’t be able to choose the right one from our catalog.
The salary always depends on the employer, the general hourly wage is around 10 to 14 USD. The standard working time is about 40 hours a week. The employer may ask you to work overtime, which is later paid 50% more than the basic rate. (Some employers are classified as seasonal, so they may not work overtime).
Most employers provide accommodation from day one in the US, in their own premises or in arranged apartments. Accommodation in some locations (New Jersey, Ocean City, Myrtle Beach) is not provided – we will help you find them !!!
