HIRING: Zipline Tour Guide

JOB OVERVIEW: Lead groups safely through our zipline course in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee while educating and interacting with customers to provide a fun and memorable experience.

Success in this role looks something like this: You show up to work on time fully clothed and looking professional. Once at work you engage with customers in a friendly and encouraging manner. You also help them with their safety harness, helmet, and other gear before safely taking them through our 2.5 hour zipline course while sharing knowledge about the Smoky Mountains. Along the way you learn their names, where they are from, interests, and fears. You help them overcome challenges. You encourage them and probably tell some corny jokes. You are sincere and genuine in conversation. Once the tour is over and everyone gives sweaty good-bye hugs to each other, repeat the process.
