While summer doesn’t officially start until mid-June, Memorial Day Weekend traditionally marks the un-official start to the summer season. American Pool Enterprises, Inc. opened an additional 1,500 commercial pools this past weekend and are currently employing more than 5,000 lifeguards, with more job opportunities available.
American Pool Enterprises, Inc. has spent much of the spring preparing swimming pools for this past weekend. Memorial Day has traditionally marked the un-official start to summer and the official kick-off to the outdoor swimming pool season. In addition to making sure that the swimming pools are repaired, cleaned and opened on time, American Pool Enterprises, Inc. has also spent a good part of the spring months hiring and training our lifeguard staff. Hiring over 5,000 lifeguards for this 2011 season, APEI has been busy instructing their entire lifeguard staff on how to provide a safe, enjoyable experience for all patrons of the swimming pools they service.
As the current recession drags on and many people are finding themselves unemployed, American Pool Enterprises, Inc. is offering what many companies currently cannot – available jobs. Before the season is over, APEI will have hired over 5,000 lifeguards and there are job opportunities currently still available. Offering flexible hours, with both full and part-time positions, the company hopes to help those in need of a job by providing the rewarding opportunity to become a lifeguard. Employment is available to anyone at least 15-years-old who becomes certified by a nationally recognized program. American Pool Enterprises currently offers free or discounted training to all its employees. Training information and an employment application is available at www.guardforlife.com. Lifeguard positions are available in the following locations: Long Island, NY; Hudson Valley, NY; Manhattan; New Jersey; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Baltimore; Ocean City, MD; Atlanta; Raleigh, NC; Woodbridge, VA; Washington, D.C. and surrounding areas.
When asked about their first weekend on the job, one lifeguard responded on the Guard for Life Facebook Page, “[It was] absolutely wonderful!” and another told us, “I love my job!”
There are many perks to being a lifeguard for the American Pool Enterprises, Inc. and large part of these is the Summer to Win promotion they’re offering. Lifeguards employed by APEI will be eligible to win one of 100 prizes totaling over $65,000 in value. The contest is a follow-up to the company’s successful $15,000 cash and prize giveaway in 2010 and the 2009 Guard for Life, Ride for Life promotion where a New Jersey lifeguard won a new 2009 Chevrolet Aveo.
