Employment Update:  May 17, 2021…


Yes, Garden Hills Pool is still planning on hiring this Summer!


If you are interested in working at the pool, please contact our Executive Director, Ms. Angie Storsteen, at execdir@gardenhillspool.com. It is preferable that interested candidates reach out to Ms. Storsteen directly, not through parents.


If you have contacted Ms. Storsteen, please know that your inquiry and follow-up emails will be addressed as soon as possible.  At the moment, Ms. Storsteen and her full-time staff are hard at work setting up protocols, and training returning guards and pool rats on everything that will be different about this summer.


Hiring for the pool this summer will be an on-going process, as staff needs fluctuate and capacity restrictions set by the City may loosen.
