Looking For Lifeguarding Job?

EARC is pleased to announce wage increases again this year!

For the 2020 season, the pay rate for guards will start at $11.25 and range up to $14.65 per hour depending upon level of experience and responsibility (guards with greater experience should expect to start at $13.25/hour).

These pay rates bring the East Asheville Recreation Club in line with or exceed compensation rates of both private and public pools in Buncombe County helping secure the best level of care for our members. Please follow the 2020 Staff link for more information

As many of you know, the past few years have seen money spent on the pool’s critical infrastructure needs.  These improvements were mostly hidden in the pump room (filter, new pump motor, rebuilding pump, etc.) or were literally underground (750 feet of new water line).

Thank you for hanging in there with us cause this year you’ll get actual visible “eye candy” that will make you posteriors more comfortable in the form of new pool furniture.  A total of 60 new chaise lounges, 10 new tables with 40 new chairs and 10 new umbrellas will greet you and your bottoms this summer season.
