The City of Austin is offering extra incentives for summer lifeguards. More than 600 are needed across the city.
Now the city is offering a $100 bonus for the first 400 lifeguards hired by May 23. The bonus will be paid through a Visa gift card.
Starting pay for lifeguards in Austin is between $8 and $10.25 an hour, depending on age, position, and experience.
The city is hosting several hiring events to get those 600-plus positions filled.
The next one is March 14 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Aquatic Administration and Training Facility.
Just bring a valid ID and your social security card.
At the event, you can fill out an application and get an interview.
