Still looking for that perfect summer job? Well, look no further! Carowinds is currently looking for new associates to join our aquatics team at Carolina Harbor. Lifeguards play an important part in creating Best Day Ever experiences for our waterpark guests by ensuring the safety of our guests and associates. Not to mention, it’s a pretty good gig with a lot of perks and a lot of fun.

Making Friends and Creating Memories

As soon as you begin lifeguarding at Carolina Harbor, you’ll meet a number of new faces. These coworkers will soon become some your new best friends. There’s no better way to bond with coworkers than by keeping the waters of Carolina Harbor safe.

Free Training and Certification

In order to ensure the safety of swimmers at any lifeguarding job, thorough training and certification is required. Carowinds is happy to provide all of our lifeguarding associates with these credentials at no cost, giving you valuable life-savings skills to be used for the rest of your life. Best of all, you even get paid to go through training.

Working Outside

Don’t spend your summer inside. As a Carolina Harbor lifeguard, you get to experience the great outdoors every day. Soak up some sun and enjoy the beautiful weather that accompanies a true Carolina summer.

Getting to Ride Waterslides and Get Paid For It

Each morning, lifeguards have to “test” 😉 our water slides. There’s also no better way to get up close and personal with the coolest slides around when you’re relieved from your shift at the top of a slide and need to take the fastest route down. Who else can say their summer job pays them to ride water slides?
