“There’s definitely good incentives on top of, you know, on top of the pay, which is also nice, but yeah, definitely you can come, you can bring your stuff and, um, three of your friends to watch our movie. You know, what’s better than that.”Kyler Kokubun
New movies coming out in the summer of 2022, so what better place to work than a movie theatre. But, if you don’t like that option, you could also work as a lifeguard for summer fun.
The Honolulu Dept. of Parks & Recreation said “one of the good jobs that we offer at parks and recreation is our part-time lifeguard positions. Um, they are available to 16 to 17-year-olds and above, um, and those are also amazing jobs as well because you’re outside. Now. You get to know the community that you’re working with a lot of the regular pool users.”
Lifeguards get paid above minimum wage as well. Nathan Serota with the Honolulu Dept. of Parks & Recreation said “and that actually has a starting pay of $16.25 an hour. So come in, you know. Good summertime pay it’s part-time so you can fit it in with your schedule as well, too.”
To be a lifeguard all you need is to be American Red Cross certified.
