SECTION 1- LIFEGUARD EMPLOYMENT
During the Summer of 2022, Swim Macon will hire 12  Lifeguards for the Summer Season to work at  Northside Swim Club. We begin the process of hiring in March and would love to have you work with us. Simply follow the directions below. We take guarding seriously, please take that into account.

Hiring Process:
1) Download the 2022-23 Swim Macon Employment Application

3) Don't forget to attach an image of your certification.

*Disclaimer- We are an aquatics training facility with over 40 years of experience in the Middle Georgia Community. Lifeguarding to us is NOT A JOKE. If you entertain visions of relaxing on deck and getting a tan as the main part of your job, please apply elsewhere. This is a life and death business, and we treat it as such. That being said, we promote a very fun working environment!**
