Tour Guide of Rock of Ages Visitors Center
Location: Vermont, USA
Position: Full Time
Founded in 1885 in Graniteville, Vermont, Rock of Ages, with its parent company, Polycor Inc., is part of the largest natural stone manufacturing and distributing company in North America.
Are you seeking a fun, engaging role that offers flexible hours?
The Rock of Ages Visitors Center seeks to add Tour Guides for our upcoming tour season. Our tour guides are storytellers and brand ambassadors who share the story of Barre Gray® granite quarry operations and the artistry of Rock of Ages craftsmen with visitors from throughout North America and beyond.
Rock of Ages has a 100-year history of giving quarry tours, and visitors from all over still come up Quarry Hill to experience a little bit of what goes on in the quarry. Guiding can be a fun & rewarding role that touches on elements of geology, history, engineering, and art. Training is provided. Hours: Monday thru Friday, with the occasional Saturday during fall foliage. We do have some flexibility in scheduling. Tour guides are paid an hourly wage plus tips.
Tour guides give scheduled, guided tours from an observation site overlooking the E.L. Smith quarry (the largest operating quarry of its type in the world), as well as assisting with visitor center operations (opening, closing, cashiering, light cleaning, etc.). A valid driver's license is required as guides use a company vehicle to access the quarry observation area. Work is both performed outside in the elements and indoors. The main requirement is a positive attitude, enthusiasm, comfort working with people and a desire to share a unique experience with our visitors.
