2019 Staff

EARC prides itself on providing a welcoming atmosphere for our members and their guests. If you are interested in joining the 2019 EARC staff team, please contact the board of directors [email protected] so we know to expect your application.

The pay rate for guards will start at $10.50 and range up to $14.25 per hour depending upon level of experience and responsibility (guards with experience should expect to start at $13.25/hour).  If you wish to be considered for a head guard/manager position ($14.25/hr) please add a statement to your application speaking to your leadership skills and ability to think on your feet and act independently in a variety of circumstances both with the pool, it’s equipment, and the public.

The minimum age for lifeguard employment in NC is 15.  Parents of minor children please do not contact on behalf of your child.  We take into account their ability to advocate for themselves and complete the application process in our determination for potential employment.


Swim Team Coaching Assistants will be a salaried position separate from a standard Life Guard Position.  The equivalent hourly rate will match that of the guard rate but will have a set number of contact hours and salary.  More information will follow.
