Shuttle Drivers and Tour Guides needed for temporary, on-call and part-time positions.
Are you witty, charming, sociable, and selfless? How about courteous and charismatic? Are you a “people-person”? Do you like to have a lot of fun? Maybe you’re tired of being RETIRED? Are you a non-smoker? Are you well-groomed and have fresh breath?
People say you’re fun and interesting. Some would also say, caring, reliable, genuine and principled. Your natural wit and humor are appreciated by others – not just yourself!!! :)
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 :)

ABOUT YOU AS A TOUR GUIDE
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. Perhaps something like, “I care.” is your “why”?
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.
Words like disciplined, diligent, methodical, demanding, consistent, focussed and accountable describe you or maybe even excite you.
If you’re convinced you have most of what it takes, we’d appreciate the privilege of hearing from you.
