El Paso will be getting four new water parks that are set to open next year. They are called Camp Cohen, Chapoteo, Lost Kingdom and Oasis. Seriously, where do they come up with these names?

The waterparks are being touted as resort-style water parks that will each feature a unique theme and attractions like spiraling water slides and interactive water playgrounds. There will also be what are called "leisure pools." I'm not sure what those are, but they sound lovely.

To make sure that people who use the waterparks are safe, the City's Parks and Rec Department need to fill more than 300 year-round and seasonal jobs. They say the jobs will be fun, give you exceptional customer service experience, valuable leadership skills, have competitive pay, and special perks. Perhaps time in the leisure pool after the waterpark has closed for the day?

The City wants enthusiastic, hard-working individuals to be waterpark lifeguards and pool attendants. I want them to be enthusiastic and hard-working as well because pools are something we don't need lazy people to be working at.

You can start applying beginning October 31. You need to be at least 15 years of age at the time of the application. You will have the chance to get the required American Red Cross Lifeguard/First Aid/CPR/AED and American Red Cross CPR/AED for Professional Rescuer certifications at multiple training events.
