Job Description

Terrific opportunity for anybody who’s physically fit and likes to do things properly.
Starting wage is $22 per hour.
16 – 24 hours per week.
Flexible schedule is full days or half days any time between 6 am and 8 pm.

Cheers! Okanagan Tours Ltd. was founded in 2016 and quickly vaulted from 124th place to first place on TripAdvisor® for exemplary tour and transportation experiences. Fanatic discipline, empirical creativity, and productive paranoia fuel our desire to build an uncommon company culture that focuses on the care and success of our employee-partners, customers, vendors, and neighbors. Helping people thrive differentiates our business.

Helping people to feel cared for, valued, and respected permeates the Cheers! culture. Years of volunteering our time in remote developing countries plagued by conflict and natural disasters assisting victims rebuild their lives was intensely fulfilling. Later, adopting brother and sister twin orphans, training them up and watching them volunteer in orphanages in Zambia and Haiti as adults was powerfully inspiring.

Unexpectedly arranging the transportation of 150 stranded travelers between the Vancouver Airport and the Okanagan on Christmas Eve in 2022 – that invigorates us! As seen on Castanet. All of a sudden transporting a Vernon High School choir on the eve of their performances at Black History Month celebrations in Vancouver when their local transportation abruptly bailed on them at the absolute last minute in 2017 – that stimulates us! Spontaneously driving 14 hours to help 16 US golfers get to Seattle to catch their flights home because the Kelowna airport suddenly closed due to forest fire smoke in 2018 – that energizes us. Abruptly driving to Kamloops to rescue 5 re-routed air-travelers, take them all the way to Kaslo in the Kootenays and return to Kelowna in 14 hours in 2023 – that rouses us! Helping people differentiates our business.

Much more than just delivering once-in-a-lifetime wine tours, today we deliver 4 very different tiers of wine tours, plus group transportation solutions for weddings, golfers, sports teams, corporate & private events, and air travelers. In the winter we safely deliver ski and snowboard enthusiasts to over 50 Heli-Ski, Cat-Ski, Ski Resorts and airports throughout southern British Columbia.

With caring for people as a core value, we’re constantly evolving, introducing innovative experiences and services, creating fresh opportunities for employee-partners, scaling into new communities, generating economic development, growing our brand, all-the-while bringing our love, philanthropy, and community-mindedness into every Okanagan community we serve. Mamas for Mamas, Freedom’s Door, and Dreams Take Flight are just a few of our favorite charities. Helping our employee-partners, customers, vendors, and neighbors thrive differentiates our business.

Typically doubling revenues year over year since our launch in 2016, steady business development has created a new opportunity for a Part-Time Automotive Detailer in our burgeoning business to keep our growing fleet clean and ready to go. We often receive 5-star reviews about our meticulously detailed vehicles. Clearly, cleanliness is important to our guests.

Simon Sinek says, “Great companies don’t hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire motivated people and inspire them.”

We have our hearts set on becoming a “great company”, consequently we need, “great people”. We need the right people. The RIGHT person has more to do with character traits and innate capabilities than with specific knowledge, background, or skills.
