I have been an employee with Oakland County Parks and Recreation for nearly three years and I have enjoyed every moment of it! The memories made and the connections formed will surely last a lifetime. I started as a lifeguard in 2015 and from the very first week, I knew I couldn't of picked a better job for high school. The training and the work environment at the waterpark was amazing! Everyone welcomed me with open arms, eager to teach me tips to being successful. As a lifeguard you have to do your best day in, day out, every single day. You're given a tremendous amount of responsibility to be vigilant and to address any problems that may arise.
I also worked with Mobile Recreation. I was able to travel throughout Oakland County, participate in special events and activities. It was a blast to say the least!
Your management team notices and commends you for the amazing work you do! You and your coworkers truly become a family. Everyone encourages everyone to do their best. That is truly what makes working at the waterpark a great place to grow and learn new skills.
I have met amazing parks and recreation professionals who could tell you about the amazing experiences they have had while working for Oakland County Parks. I truly love my job! I have pushed myself to excel while working for Oakland County. If you're interested in working for Oakland County Parks as a Lifeguard or another positions, I would strongly recommend it.
