Are you interested in working at Highlands Aerial Park as a Zipline Guide!?
Each year, we hire guides in late spring/early summer to help meet the demands of the busy summer months. Training typically takes place in early June and is only conducted once a year. If you miss it, you have to wait until the following year to reapply.
All guides need to be available at least five or ore days per week and must be prepared to work long hours as needed. College students need to be able to commit to work through Labor Day weekend. Local residents have the potential of being kept on through the fall on an as need basis.
Qualities Mandatory for the position
An outgoing personality and a desire to interact with public and share the awe of the natural beauty of our mountain and its features. This position is primarily a customer service/public relations job conducted in the trees rather than a desk. Highlands Aerial Park strives to not only meet but exceed the expectations of our guests in this area. Unfailing responsibility to safety is necessary every second of the tour. While the highest standards of safety in equipment, construction, inspection, and accreditation are maintained and the industry safety experience is excellent, it is an adventure outdoors with all the variables that can occur. There can be no lapse in adherence to every safety precaution. While it is an adventure for the guest, it is not an adventure for the guide. Physical ability with reasonable strength (gravity supplies the power) and good health habits that support the physical ability are important. Doing multiple tours in a day can be tiring and you need to be able to stay on your feet and active for most of the day. Women are strongly encouraged to become guides and a male/female team is actually preferred by many visitors. The minimum age is 18 for those who have the maturity required.
We zip rain, shine, or snow! Only in extreme cases such as lightning, high winds, or limited visibility, will we close the park. If you feel you will be uncomfortable zipping in inclement weather, please notify us as soon as possible. We will be happy to provide you with a raincheck or refund.
