HOW TO APPLY – SHUTTLE DRIVERS

1) Submit your COMMERCIAL DRIVING RECORD/DRIVER'S ABSTRACT https://onlinebusiness.icbc.com/clio/

2) Submit a COVER LETTER informing (convincing) Allen and the Cheers! hiring team why you think you’d make a great shuttle driver. Although conveying your pride, self-respect, self-esteem, honor, privilege, and dignity is somewhat of an art, nevertheless, we need a compelling reason to consider hiring you. What sets you apart from typical, mediocre “designated drivers”? What have you done you’re exceptionally proud of? If you’ve earned the title of best boss, best mom, best dad, best counsellor, best coach, MVP, best teacher, best leader, best employee, miss congeniality, etc., say so! And be sure to include the testimonials or an image of the plaque(s). Clearly indicate your home address and which area(s) you prefer to work from: Vernon, YLW, Kelowna, Penticton, or Oliver/Osoyoos.

A resume isn’t necessary. If you have one you’re proud of because it clearly shows you’re a customer service aficionado or a rock star who made huge gains for others, by all means send it along too.

We recognize people are NOT our most important asset. The RIGHT people are. The RIGHT person has more to do with character traits and innate capabilities than with specific knowledge, background, or skills.

Perhaps a little brusque or insensitive in his delivery, but the sentiment couldn’t possibly be more true than expressed by U.S. Army Delta Force founder Colonel Charlie A. Beckwith, “I’d rather go down the river with seven studs than with a hundred sh*theads.”

Simon Sinek says, “Great companies don’t hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire motivated people and inspire them.” Are you already motivated?

TOUR GUIDES
Part Time Wine Tour Guides Desired in the Okanagan & Similkameen

No Tour Guide Experience Necessary

10 QUALITIES EVERY CHEERS! TOUR GUIDE SHOULD HAVE. 1. You need to be charismatic, 2. You should be a good communicator, 3. You need to be a good storyteller, 4. You must have good organization skills, 5. You need a good sense of humor, 6. You must be empathetic, 7. You need to think on your feet, 8. You should have a good sense of direction, 9.

Unquestionably, the single greatest influence on the atmosphere, pace, and tone of a tour of any kind is the guide. Great tour guides demonstrate passion and personality interpreting and presenting each tour as an extension of themselves – as naturally as breathing.

Join our team of award-winning tour guides who have helped deliver over 75,000 guests a once-in-a-lifetime tour experience.

Are you witty, charming, sociable, and selfless? How about courteous, charismatic, and a conversationalist? Are you a “people-person”? Do you like to have a lot of fun?

People say you’re fun and interesting. Some would also say, caring, reliable, genuine and principled. Your natural wit and sense of humor are appreciated by others – not just yourself!!!

You practice self-acceptance, make laughing a priority, you're conscientious, and empathetic.

You appreciate being: celebrated, heard, provided feedback on performance, given opportunities to learn new skills, autonomy, and kept informed on the direction and strategy of the company.

You have excellent driving habits and a near-perfect driving record. (Driving vehicles, not golf balls silly)

Daily physical requirements of this position include excessive smiling and laughing, lifting up to 40 lbs., repeated driving, standing, walking, talking, ascending or descending stairs and ramps along with intermittent kneeling, pushing and pulling – Not unlike a round of Texas Scramble.

If I’ve described you – you are in for the time of your life! We have way too much fun and zero drama – except for sharing our wittiness and storytelling.

Our goal at Cheers! is to build the most recognized, nay legendary, team of customer-focused professionals in the industry. An unstoppable force. Personally engaging, knowledgeable, professional raconteurs and true service aficionados who share colourful local history and interesting information (I.e. why Kal Lake’s color ranges from cyan to indigo, about grape farming (viticulture), wine and the wine industry, extinct volcanoes, Area 27, “The Ditch”, McIntyre Bluff, Frank Richter Sr. and local legends) interesting information – not just your golf handicap.

Our WHY, is: I CARE.

Celebrating our 5th anniversary in 2021, Cheers! Okanagan Tours Ltd. has vaulted from 124th place to 1st place on TripAdvisor® for tours and transportation! Full-bodied and expressive reviews authenticate our passion and commitment at guaranteeing our guests enjoy truly exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime and unforgettable experiences.

We are wholly dependent on our customers. We believe our guests are not dependant on us, we are dependent on them. We are not doing them a favor by serving them, they are doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so.

At Cheers! we are relentlessly focused on three simple ideas:

#1) To be the most recognized tour and transportation brand in the Okanagan.

#2) To be the top-rated employer in the Okanagan.

#3) To be the best-managed company in the Okanagan.

Our thoughts on Service: “Customer Enthusiasm Is Our Obsession.”

Our thoughts on Quality: “Perfection Is Our Goal, Excellence Will Be Tolerated.”

Our thoughts on Teamwork: “No One Can Whistle A Symphony. It Takes An Orchestra To Play It.” And “None Of Us Is As Smart As All Of Us.”

Our thoughts on Customer Experience: “We desire our guests to experience once-in-a-lifetime moments – all day long.”

Often, countless, unseen details are the only difference between mediocre and magnificent. At Cheers! our commitment is doing a thousand little things exceptionally well. Simply put, we sweat the small stuff. As Eric O’Sullivan, General Manager of Sherwood Park Chevrolet & Sherwood Buick GMC recently said in his TripAdvisor review, “THEY EXECUTE EVERYTHING PERFECTLY”

Obsessed with achieving solid relationships across the board, we believe listening to, respecting and earning the privilege of our guests’, tourism partners’, employee-partners’ and neighbours’ trust is critical.

Cheers! is privileged to be a sponsor of Dreams Take Flight, Freedoms Door, Mamas-for-Mamas, COPS FOR KIDS and other charitable foundations devoted to helping little hearts in the community.

COMPENSATION
Our tour guide compensation package begins with a $16 an hour wage, 15% guaranteed gratuities, plus various commissions, spiffs, and performance bonuses. In 2020 the average compensation equalled $41 per hour. PLUS there’s uncalculated additional gifts and gratuities at our guests’ discretion.

We’re of the opinion, whoever you choose to work with, you deserve the best. Most importantly, you deserve personal fulfilment.

At Cheers! we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy the benefits. We guarantee improved health! The Mayo Clinic says, “Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Laughter relieves your stress response and soothes tension. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.” https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/stress-management/in-depth/art-20044456 or consider Proverbs 17:22 “A happy heart is like a good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing.” Circa 700 BC

ABOUT YOU
We’re looking for exceptional people, the right people, people who are self-motivated by the inner drive to produce the best results, people who want to be a part of building something great.

In our opinion the old adage, “People are your most important asset” is wrong. People are NOT our most important asset. The right people are.

The right person has more to do with character traits and innate capabilities than with specific knowledge, background, or skills. We believe that when you have disciplined people, you don’t need hierarchy. When you have disciplined thought, you don’t need bureaucracy.

As far back as you can remember you have demonstrated an obsession for delivering absolutely exceptional customer service and hospitality. “Above-and-beyond” is intrinsically in your DNA. You can hardly help yourself from helping people.

You have been dedicated to making everything you touched the best it could possibly be. Your moral code requires building excellence for its own sake. Your work ethic is exemplary! You’ve been complimented, commended, and cheered!

You’re likely a strong leader in your own right. You’re not afraid to contribute, even debate or argue. At the end of the day, your highest priority is the common good of the company, not your own interests.

If you’re convinced you have most of what it takes, we’d appreciate the privilege of hearing from you.

HOW TO APPLY – TOUR GUIDES
