6) Soaking Up The Sun
After suffering a long and harsh winter, nothing beats having a job over the summer that allows you to enjoy the beautiful summer weather. Not to mention, working outside will help you get a sweet tan.
5) Operate (and ride) Thrilling Slides
Being a lifeguard at Oceans of Fun is full of excitement! There is no better way to mix up your day than having the opportunity to send guests down our exciting slides and ensuring their day is full of fun.
Each morning before we open the waterpark, lifeguards get to “test” our water slides. Plus, when you're relieved from your shift at the top of a slide, you get a refreshing slide to the bottom. Who else can say their summer job pays them to ride water slides?
4) Great Compensation & Perks

Our associates receive 8 complimentary tickets after working a set amount of hours to show their friends and family what it is that they do!
3) Lifelong Memories and Friendships
From the moment you receive your whistle and swimsuit, you’ll meet many people that will soon become your work family. Working side by side with these amazing people will build countless bonds and memories that will last a lifetime.
