Work at a WDM Aquatic Center This Summer

We are currently looking for qualified people to fill all Aquatic Center Staff positions. If you want a summer of fun in the sun, apply today! 

  • Looking for a class to become a lifeguard? Just email Mark Brewick or call him at 515-222-3441 for more information.  If you're hired and work the whole season, we will pay for your training (up to 27 hours) and course registrations.
  • Make up to $100 by referring two new aquatics staff members ($50 per referral). Tell them to mention your name in their interview. If the person you referred is hired and you both work the whole season, you will receive a referral bonus check at the end of the summer.
    If you are WSI (Water Safety Instructor) certified, you get paid the WSI rate, which is nearly $1 more per hour than the lifeguard rate.You will be paid the WSI rate while teaching swim lessons and lifeguarding.
    If you finish the summer with us and teach swim lessons, we will even pay for your WSI course registration and for your time taking the class (up to 28 hours). Just be sure to keep your receipt. If you need help finding a WSI course, email Mark Brewick or call him at 515-222-3441. By the way, WSI Certification looks great on a resume!
