Imagine spending your workday soaking up rays while safeguarding the lives of enthusiastic swimmers and beach goers. Turn your "day at the office" into a "day at the pool." Grand Junction needs you.

Grand Junction isn't exactly known for its lavish beaches. We do, however, have community pools. The nice thing about a pool vs. an ocean would be, no sharks!
