If you are interested in a challenging and rewarding job this summer, the City of Huntington Beach is planning to hire responsible men and women to provide first line protection for the City’s beaches. Lifeguard Tryouts will be held at 8 a.m. on Sunday, May 22.

The performance exam will be held at Lifeguard Headquarters, 103 Pacific Coast Highway, one block south of the Huntington Beach Municipal Pier. The starting pay is $16.99 per hour (plus 5% for EMT certification and 5% for passing a bilingual examination). Applicants must be 17 years of age by June 1, 2016. 

The performance exam consists of three physical events: a 1000-yard ocean swim, a 500-yard ocean swim and a 1,500-yard run-swim-run. All events are conducted in prevailing conditions around and through the Huntington Beach Pier. Applicants must satisfactorily complete all performance exam events to be eligible for further consideration. 

The top qualified candidates will be invited to an oral interview on the afternoon of Sunday, May 22. Based on the combined results of the performance exam and the oral interview, the top qualified candidates will be invited into the Lifeguard Academy. The Academy will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. starting June 19 through June 30, 2016. Candidates will be compensated during the academy at the pay rate of $16.99 per hour.
