Each season we need professional drivers/tour operators to safely drive routes for up to 22 passengers in a 25-foot trolley bus. These are part-time, seasonal roles taking place on evenings and weekends in collaboration with staff at The Local Store.
Most tours require the sharing of facts and stories about our community (provided for you to learn), delivered from a headset microphone, with some basic audio equipment to operate. Driving for private tours or independent rentals that don’t require narration is also possible.
Drivers must have a current Fed Med Card and a Class C commercial drivers license with a passenger endorsement, as well as experience driving similar large vehicles. Working together to get such a license/endorsement may also be possible in some instances.
Additionally, drivers/tour operators must be outgoing, friendly, and articulate individuals able to memorize key details and scripts, while improvising and interacting with riders to create a fun and memorable experience for people of all ages. A passion for the Eau Claire community is of course a big plus!
Overall, our staff (as part of the Volume One team) enjoys an array of fun benefits and a vibrant local culture. Hourly pay for these roles is comparative with similar passenger-driving roles in the community.
