Ocean Lakes hiring service-minded folks to join our summer team in Myrtle Beach

We’re starting to do one of the most important things to get ready for the busy summer season: Hire the right people for our team.

Ocean Lakes will add about 300 teammates for the summer, including lifeguards, snack bar cooks and cashiers, recreation activities counselors, maintenance crews and more.

Recruiting is underway for part-time and full-time positions that come with a variety of benefits, including weekly paychecks, discounts and access to our amenities when you’re off work.

Our team – which swells to nearly 500 during the summer – is a hard-working bunch that helps make Ocean Lakes special. Each teammate focuses on providing friendly and helpful customer service with the goal of putting smiles on all our guests’ faces.

We need teammates who like to have fun and help our guests have fun. Teammates who not only respond to guests’ questions, but are always looking for ways to go above and beyond to help our guests make family memories that last a lifetime.

“We look for candidates who have the ability to fit with our culture of service,” said Shannon Detzler, Human Resources Coordinator/Recruiter for The Jackson Companies, the parent company of Ocean Lakes Family Campground. “Working at Ocean Lakes isn’t just a job. It’s being part of a team that strives to be the best.”

If you have that focus on customer service, we’ll teach you the skills needed to excel on our team.

Looking for lifeguards

One of the biggest needs is for lifeguards at our Sandy Harbor Water Park, which opened in 2016 and features slides, a lazy river, pools and a Splash Zone for kids.

Lifeguards working at the top of our water slides at Sandy Harbor Water Park have one of the best views in town.

Want to be a lifeguard but aren’t certified? No problem. We’ll provide the Red Cross training for certification. If you are already a certified lifeguard, you may be eligible to receive a sign-on bonus.

“Students, firefighters, teachers and others have all found that working as a lifeguard during the summer at Ocean Lakes is a perfect fit,” Detzler said. “They are able to work a flexible schedule and earn income while enjoying one of the best water park environments at the beach.”
