Efficient Beach Attendants
Our Beach attendants perform a variety of tasks in their jobs. The types of responsibilities they handle depend, in part, on the type of beach environment they like working outdoors, regardless of the weather, and enjoy serving the public, this is a great job for mature teenagers, strong adults and able seniors make for good beach attendants.
Our beach attendant greets visitors, either in the parking lot or at the entrance. They check that passes are current, register guests and give them directions. As the first person to meet guests, they are expected to be polite, friendly and helpful by answering customers’ questions and fulfilling their needs. Our attendants understand all policies and regulations of the beach they’re given and are able to explain them pleasantly to guests. Multilingual beach attendants are often hired for the Miami area.
Handle Chairs and Umbrellas
Depending on how the beach operation is run in your facilities, beach attendants may show people to chairs, rent equipment to them or carry and place umbrellas they have rented. Some may provide menus or information about available snacks. They explain rental time periods and check rental equipment back in. It’s also up to attendants to keep equipment accounted for, neat and orderly.
Beach attendants are responsible for the transactions with customers as they rent equipment, pay for beach access, parking, food or other items and services. Attendants usually handle cash and charges and are responsible for keeping track of sales and balancing their cash drawer at the end of their shift. They may make a bank deposit or put it in a safe so a large sum of money isn’t left in the drawer.
Keep Area Tidy
Throughout their work day, beach attendants keep the beach or their specific area clean. They may empty trash cans several times during their shift, pick up loose trash and sweep walkways to keep them free of debris. They also keep equipment neat and in one place, stacking chairs and lounges, replacing umbrellas and straightening tables, for example. On some jobs, beach attendants may weed flower beds and water plants, paint and make minor repairs to structures to keep the area in good condition.
Beach attendants are always alert to emergencies, whether those of a first-aid nature or a major emergency requiring a call to 911 for emergency services. They know where the first-aid kit is kept and are available for the lifeguards to call for help if needed.
