Okanagan Tour Guides

Full Time and Part Time Okanagan Tour Guides

No Experience Necessary

We are always on the lookout for the best Okanagan Tour Guides in Kelowna and Vernon.

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 humour are appreciated by others – not just yourself!!! 🙂
You appreciate being: celebrated, heard, provided feedback on performance, given opportunities to learn new skills, given autonomy, and 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 we’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 is to build the most recognized 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 colour ranges from cyan to indigo, about wine and the wine industry, extinct volcanoes, and local legends – not your golf handicap 🙂

Our thoughts…

On Service: “Customer Enthusiasm Is Our Obsession.”
On Quality: “Perfection Is Our Goal, Excellence Will Be Tolerated.”
On Teamwork: “No One Can Whistle A Symphony. It Takes An Orchestra To Play It.”
On Customer Experience: “We desire our guests 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 at Sherwood Park Chevrolet & Sherwood Buick GMC recently said in his TripAdvisor review, “they execute everything perfectly.”

Obsessed with customer enthusiasm, we believe listening to, respecting and earning the privilege of our guests’ trust is paramount. We are passionate about successfully delivering end-to-end, high-value experiential tours, seamless transportation solutions, and above all – we believe an Okanagan tour should be a remarkable guest experience.

Compensation

Our compensation package begins with a $15 an hour wage, 15% guaranteed gratuities, various commissions, spiffs, and performance bonuses. In 2017 the average compensation equalled $41 per hour and occasionally surpassed $100 per hour. PLUS unknown additional gratuities at 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 Proverbs 17:22 puts it like this, “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. We’re looking for 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 “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. If you are/were a parent, every tough decision you make is for the benefit of the family.
Words like disciplined, diligent, methodical, demanding, consistent, focused 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.

How to Apply

Please email Allen at [email protected] Create a unique cover letter and inform, (convince) Allen and the Cheers! Hiring Team why you think you’d make a renowned 5-star tour guide.
What sets you apart from typical, mediocre “designated drivers?”
What have you done that you’re exceptionally proud of? If you’ve earned the title of best boss, best mom, best dad, best counsellor, best coach, best teacher, best leader, best employee, miss congeniality, etc. Say so, and be sure to include the endorsements or references.
Not being comfortable bragging is a good thing. Conveying your pride, self-respect, self-esteem, honor, privilege, and dignity is somewhat of an art. However, we need a compelling reason to consider hiring you.
Successful applicants will be required to get their BC Class 4 Unrestricted Driver’s Licence and be able to prove they can have fun – all day long.
