UNION COUNTY, NJ – Weather may be chilly now, but soon it will be summer. For Union County residents age 16 and older, the County Department of Parks and Recreation islooking to hire certified lifeguards this summer at the Walter Ulrich Memorial Pool in Rahway.  

“Working as a lifeguard provides an opportunity to add a position of reliability and responsibility to college applications and resumes,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen.

Applicants must be 16 years of age or older by completion of their training.  The starting pay is $11.00 per hour. The 2017 season begins on June 24 and ends on September 4.
