Applications are being accepted for temporary summer positions at Fort Leonard Wood
Applications are being accepted for temporary summer positions at Fort Leonard Wood for everything from lifeguards to large tractor operators.
The Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation is looking to fill positions for recreation aids, lifeguards, and laborers to work at places, such as the Piney Valley Golf Course, Rec Plex, and Lake of the Ozarks Recreation Area. Family and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Director Megan O’ Donoghue says, “Our summer hire jobs start and end on different timeframes depending on the job and location of the position. However, many of our summer hires are high school and college students. Therefore, we will work around school schedules.” O’Donoghue said most of FMWR’s seasonal summer hire jobs provide a chance for on-the-job experience and personal growth.
Applicants do not need to be affiliated with the military to work for FMWR — if hired, employees will get a Common Access Card, which authorizes access to the installation.
FMWR’s summer hire positions start at $15 an hour. Call the Nonappropriated Fund Human Resources Office at 573.596.0283 for more information on seasonal FMWR jobs. Just like FMWR, the Fort Wood Directorate of Public Works is also accepting applications for summer hire positions. According to Debbie Pendleton, a DPW human resources specialist, the temporary positions are for jobs working on post from March 15th to November 15th. The pay is between $13.61 an hour and $20.90 an hour, depending on the job description. Pendleton said these positions are all part-time, and if teenagers ages 16 and 17 want to work on post for the summer, they can with their parent’s permission.
