PARK MONITOR (hourly)
Park Monitors are the eyes and ears of the park. Their primary responsibility is to ensure the safety and well-being of all of the park’s guests as well as provide assistance and guidance where needed. It is the duty of the park monitors to ensure that each guest has an enjoyable and memorable experience. A park monitor must possess a friendly disposition, multi-tasking skills, and the ability to remain calm under pressure.

This is the main entry-level position within our company. There are many opportunities for experienced, hard-working individuals to move up quickly within our company. Experienced candidates with additional skills and/or training in the areas of building/construction, maintenance, landscaping, and arboriculture are preferred.

Park Monitor duties include (but are not limited to):
Harnessing guests, delivering safety briefings and gear demonstrations, observing and counseling guests as they maneuver throughout the park. Most new monitors will start out spending the majority of their time assisting guests with their harnesses as well as delivering the safety briefings. Additional skills will be taught based on aptitude and performance. Monitors must be able to quickly and competently pick up new skill sets both in training and on the job while maintaining the highest quality of customer service.

CASHIER
Cashiers are the first person guests see when arriving at the park. Naturally, a friendly personality is a must. As many guests are not quite certain what they are signing up for, the cashier must also be adept at fielding general information questions and explaining what the experience entails. Cashier duties include selling tickets and merchandise, answering guest inquiries, and managing wait lists.

The most important requirements are a friendly personality, a positive attitude, and an excellent work ethic.  Preferred skills include previous experience with SQUARE.  Cashiers must be able to quickly and competently pick up new skill sets both in training and on the job as well as maintain the highest quality of customer service.
