In addition to Oakland County Parks, many communities are seeing the need for more Oakland County Lifeguard jobs.

While Molinar said Troy doesn’t have the same urgency for lifeguards that Oakland County Parks does, she concurred that there is a need to recruit the high schools earlier and earlier each season to fill the number required by Troy Recreation and other Oakland County parks and rec departments that require lifeguards to staff pools.
