Milwaukee County Parks to Hold Two Job Fairs

Milwaukee County Parks will have two job fairs to fill nearly 200 seasonal positions.

The first is scheduled March 24 from noon–6 PM at the David F. Schulz Aquatic Center in Lincoln Park, 1301 W. Hampton Ave.

The second is scheduled March 25 from 10 AM–2 PM at the Holler Park Lodge, 5151 S. 6th St.

The part-time positions are scheduled from spring through fall or for the summer only.

Positions range from Traveling Beer Garden staff, golf starters, and restaurant staff, to pool attendants, lifeguards, park patrol staff, and building- or grounds-maintenance workers.

All candidates must be residents of the State of Wisconsin and at least 16 at the time of application; however, if a position includes duties serving beer, the candidate must be at least 18 to apply.

To be considered for hire, Seasonal Lifeguard candidates must be able to swim 100 meters in under one minute and 45 seconds.

Free training, focused on the lifesaving skills needed to pass the Civil Service performance exam, will be offered. After passing the exam, candidates must obtain American Heart Association Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation for the Health Care Provider and First Responder certifications through Milwaukee County.

Park Patrol Seasonal candidates must possess a High School Diploma or GED, and valid Wisconsin driver’s license (Class D) and CPR/AED and First Aid certifications.

Positions being recruited through the Milwaukee County Careers website include the following titles: Lifeguard Seasonal, Park Patrol Seasonal, and the broadly-defined Park Worker I-III. On-line applications may be completed at

Candidates are encouraged to apply online before attending the event because managers will be on-site ready to conduct interviews. For those candidates who have not completed an application, staff will provide instructions on how to apply online as well as a brief application to complete at the job fair.

Pay depends on skill set, experience, and availability. Hourly pay for Lifeguard Seasonal ranges from $10.36–$11.66; Park Patrol Seasonal, from $11.72–$14.10; and Park Worker I–III, from $7.61–$11.25.
