Rock of Ages Visitor Center Associate
Share the story of Rock of Ages and the greater Barre community!
The Rock of Ages Visitor Center seeks to add seasonal tour guides for the 2023 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 the throughout North America and the world. Rock of Ages has a history of giving quarry tours for 99 years so join our team as we prepare for our "Tour Centenary" in 2024!
The tour guide role includes giving guided tours from an observation site overlooking the E.L. Smith quarry, 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. While prior stone trade experience is helpful, it is not required – training will be provided. The main requirement is enthusiasm, comfort working with people and a desire to share a unique experience with our visitors.
Flexible hours, including Saturday, June - October. Tour guides are paid an hourly wage plus tips, which in busy periods can be quite substantial.
