The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and National Canal Museum is looking for organized, approachable staff who enjoy being active to work as seasonal Welcome Center Hosts. Hosts need to be safety-oriented, dependable and have strong customer service and decision-making skills.
Welcome Center Hosts serve as our visitors’ first point of contact upon arrival and set the tone for their day. In addition to providing a warm welcome, hosts are responsible for assisting guests with all manner of inquiries from “what’s a canal?” to “where’s a good place to eat lunch?”. Hosts also handle admission to the museum and mule-drawn canal boat ride, sell a limited range of pre-packaged snacks and drinks, and rent recreational equipment (bicycles, paddleboats, kayaks and canoes) to visitors.
Position requires a friendly and welcoming attitude, good communication skills, attention to detail, ability to operate point of sale system, and current child abuse and criminal history clearances.
