Greeter-Ambassador (Two temporary positions)

The primary function of the greeter-ambassador is to help improve the visitor experience by engaging visitors early in their experience. Construction along the waterfront construction can present a challenge to guests, making it difficult to find the Aquarium’s entrance. The greeter-ambassador will work outside, proactively assisting the public to cross the street and enter the facility. This includes navigating guest entry, facilitating group arrivals and departures, coordinating with the admission supervisor on how to activate long lines and provide information for the waterfront. This function will alert the appropriate parties when encountering conditions that can lead to a negative guest experience when visiting the waterfront.
