Get Paid to Have Fun!
Water Taxi, the company that operates boats on the Bricktown Canal, will soon be hiring tour guides and ticket sellers for the 2021 season.
If you love Oklahoma, OKC, people, and working outdoors, this is the job for you. GREAT income opportunity. Ambassadors (tour guides) make SIGNIFICANT gratuities in addition to base hourly rate (usually an additional $10+/hr). Ticket sellers earn $12/hr (additional hourly rate to offset lack of gratuities available).
Those who do this job very well usually far exceed hourly rate with gratuities — don’t make the mistake of writing this off as a $_____/hr. job. How much you make is up to you, and heavily dependent upon your positive attitude and outgoing personality. Wallflowers need not apply. People looking for a J.O.B. need not apply. This position is for people who want to make themselves and Oklahoma City shine, and who take pride in the way outsiders perceive both.
FT/PT positions available. Day/evening/weekday/weekend shifts available. Flexible schedules. Although this job is seasonal, the employment season typically runs well into late Fall.
A degree is certainly not required, although those who possess one will not feel overqualified OR under-stimulated in this job. Available evening and weekend shifts for those with other employment.
In compliance with federal and state equal employment laws, it is the company’s intention to consider all applicants without regard to race, color, origin, age, marital status, the presence of non-job related medical conditions or any other protected classifications.

- Boat handling experience (we provide full, paid training)
No matter what position applied for, it’s a real plus if you:
