SUMMER EMPLOYEES WANTED
Spend your summer outside having fun in the sun leading guided Segway tours of the Burlington Bike Path, downtown and UVM. We are looking for an energetic crew to staff our Segway tours, ebike rental and retail tourist shop in downtown Burlington this summer.
This job is part time on days suitable for Segway tours. Flexible hours can be arranged around your schedule but weekend days are a large part of our business. Memorization of a narrative of the history of Burlington is required. You will be delivering the narrative to guests by radio as you roll along. An interest in American history, Burlington Vermont, the waterfront, the Bike Path and environmentalism are a must. A friendly demeanor and outgoing personality is essential for successful interaction with tourists from all over the world. Fluency in multiple languages is also a plus, particularly French. Experience teaching a skill is also helpful.
This position starts at $18 per hour. Tips are common, which can increase your pay to $25 an hour or more, often depending on your performance on the tour.
Our season starts in mid-May and runs into the fall. Our busiest times are July and August with the influx of summer tourists. We are accepting resumes now and will schedule interviews by the second week in May. To apply send a brief cover letter about yourself and why you want to work for Burlington Segways and a resume to Rick Sharp at firstname.lastname@example.org .
