Summer Rec. Bonuses
The recreation and beach dept. is offering camp counselors and supervisors a bonus of up to $2,500 “to sign on and stay on” for the town’s full seven-week summer recreation youth program.
“That works out to almost $8 more per hour on top of our already competitive pay scale!” said Recreation Director Damion Clements in an announcement.
That “already competitive pay scale” is $15.21 to $18.40 an hour for youth counselors. But the pay goes up for the assistant program supervisor, who can earn $18.20 to $24 an hour; and the supervisor can expect a salary of $20.88 to $24.37. Those in supervisory positions are also eligible for the bonus.
But to get the full bonus amount, employees must keep working with the recreation program until Aug. 19. Applicants must be 16 years old at date of hire.
If watching children during day camp holds no interest for you, there are a lot of other town jobs in Truro.
You could be a library programming and community outreach specialist for $24.37 an hour. That job is year-round. But there is a summer assistant position at the library for $15.61 to $18.09 per hour.
Another year-round job, as assistant health and conservation agent, is being advertised at $33 to $38 an hour.
Finally, the town is hiring beach attendants and lifeguards. It’s about to be swimming weather, after all. —K.C. Myers
