If you are passionate about the outdoors and embrace the idea of living and playing in the mountains while working on a mountain with a team of like-minded individuals, Jasper SkyTram is the place for you!

Jasper SkyTram is considered a “must do” for people of all ages and abilities while visiting Jasper National Park in the summer season. We strive to create a compelling experience for our guests, but it is equally important to us to foster an environment of growth, opportunity, and memories for the people that work with us. We have the privilege of employing people from all around the world to experience and share one of the most beautiful places on the planet in a family-fun and adventurous way.

Position Overview:
The Guest Services Coordinator is a dynamic position within the Guest Services department responsible for overseeing the Guest Services Agents, assisting with group sales, and maintaining guest relations while reporting any issues to the Guest Services Supervisors. Guest Services Coordinators are required to step in when the Guest Services Supervisors are not available and must be able to assist with ticket sales and reservation coordination/confirmation.

This is a full-time seasonal position between March and November. The incumbent must be able to work flexible shifts, including evenings, weekends, and holidays.

Alberta Employment Standards regarding probationary periods apply. Wage starts at $18.00/hr.

What does a day in the life of Guest Services at Jasper Skytram look like?

The SkyTram hours of operation vary during the time of the season. For the shoulder seasons (Spring and Fall) there is just one shift during the day. During the Summer months, there are 2 shifts (morning and afternoon/evening). Morning shifts start as early as 7:30 AM and afternoon shifts around 2/3:00 PM. A complimentary staff shuttle is available to transport everyone to and from the mountain and staff accommodation located in the Jasper townsite. As the Guest Services Coordinator, you will arrive in advance of the public to organize the Guest Services Agents for the day. This includes the distribution of cash tills and allocating agents to specific stations on the mountain, relaying any updates for the day events and communicating any issues to supervisors.

Once all agents are in position, it is important to check in on guest correspondence including emails and voice mails. Responding to guest inquiries and addressing any issues on site while ensuring the guests are moving efficiently through the purchase process are top priority throughout the day.

Guest Service Coordinators operate out of the Administration office and have direct contact with all stations on the mountain via phone and two-way radio. You will work closely with the lift operators to ensure all guests are organized in the most efficient manner by utilizing the custom point of sale system and SkyTram flight schedule.

The flow of the day is highly determined by the weather and to what degree you are required to assist with guests outside on site. Otherwise, your day can be consumed in the office organizing online purchases and group sales/travel agent inquiries. You will also delegate break times to the Guest Service Agents when time permits and assist with ticket sales if required.

During your shift you will receive one half hour of free time where you can either sit inside or outside to eat your lunch and relax. At the end of your shift, you will collect all cash tills from the agents and submit reports to the Supervisor or Coordinator prior leaving the mountain.
