The County of Maui will be holding a one-stop recruitment day on July 27 for pool guard trainees, which can be the first step to a career as a lifeguard.

The county’s Personnel Services and Parks and Recreation departments will be conducting the One-Stop Recruitment Opportunity, which begins at 8 a.m. Friday, July 27, at War Memorial Sakamoto Pool in Wailuku.

That day, applicants should be prepared to: 1) take and pass a written civil service exam; and 2) swim 300 meters in 10 minutes or less.  Following successful completion of the written exam and performance test, interviews will be conducted on the spot.


Apply at by noon July 26 to be eligible for the recruitment day.  Minimum requirements are high school graduation and a valid driver’s license.

The Pool Guard Trainee is an entry-level position in the Pool Guard program, which offers on-the-job training at no cost to the employee the theories, techniques and methods used by lifeguards. Upon hire, eligibility for promotions are available at six months, and the county offers a benefit package, among other incentives.

For more information, call Cynthia M. Razo-Porter at Personnel Services, (808) 270-7256, or Duke Sevilla, pool manager, at (808) 270-6135.
