The Zoo will host two job fairs this spring: one focused specifically on lifeguards on April 21 and one more general fair on April 28 with information about positions in areas, including food and beverage, facilities, guest relations, security, membership processing, rides, lifeguards, retail and more. For those interested in working in a specific area at the Zoo or Zoombezi Bay, applicants can attend open interviews for food and beverage and retail positions on April 14 or open interviews for rides and attractions positions on April 14 or April 20.
In addition, Zoombezi Bay is hiring lifeguards for the summer season and invites applicants to attend an open interview called a “swimmerview” on April 13, 19 or May 11 at the Worthington Natatorium, or on April 27 at the Delaware YMCA. Participants must bring a swimsuit as they will need to complete a basic water skills test before they move on to the interview portion of the event. No prior experience as a lifeguard is required. Once hired, Zoombezi Bay offers full lifeguard certification and training at no cost to employees.
Applicants must be 16 years of age or older. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
