We are seeking the right individual(s) who are interested in building momentum and excitement as we emerge from the challenges of the past year.

Department supervisory or management experience in a relatable operation is required. Candidates who have not held down a job consistently and/or have no supervisory or management experience in a relatable-type of operation will not be considered. This is a very busy, fast paced working environment where the primary responsibilities are that of maintaining a clean and orderly recreational facility with an extreme focus on safety for our guests and team members, as well as, working with the property maintenance team to ensure well-maintained and safe facilities.

A friendly, clear phone voice and in person voice is necessary. This role involves standing upright for the majority of the shift. A clean and professional appearance is necessary as well - this is a leadership role - and as such, a proper appearance is key in setting an example for the team.

Primary duties of this role include ensuring a clean, safe and well-run recreational department where safety, sanitation and teamwork are key to providing our guests and property owners with a great experience. Department scheduling, team member training, planning of resources, maintaining proper staffing levels, managing inventory, attending manager meetings weekly are all duties typical of the department leader.

The individual chosen for this role must have already obtained his/her CPO License or be willing to obtain a valid CPO License (Certified Pool Operator by National Swimming Pool Foundation). Of preference would be those individuals who are already a Certified Lifeguard Trainer by American Red Cross.

This is the primary leader of the waterpark department, as a result, organizational skills and team building skills will be necessary for success. This role reports to the General Manager.
