Stewards

If you’ve ever been on The Prairie Lily, you know we have great crew.  Our Stewards are front and centre with all our guests!  It is their role to welcome you on board, provide food and beverage service and make sure you are comfortable.  Most importantly they are part of our passenger safety team.  Like Stewards on an airplane, they are trained to take care of passengers in emergency. 

In the coming weeks (spring 2021), we will be looking to hire some Stewards for the summer.  Requirements for this position include an aptitude helping others, great customer service skills, being over the age of 19 years old and possess Service it Right Certificate with previous food and beverage service experience.  That, and we like really nice people! 

This position is seasonal and may be full-time or part-time, depending on circumstances.  We pay more than most serving positions and have a great working environment.

The principal function of this role is to ensure the mechanical and electrical components of the ship are operating to standard so the vessel is ready for safe service every day and throughout every cruise.

Key duties include:

  • Welcoming passengers and provide on board safety demonstration
  • Sell and serve beverages and food according to customer bookings and orders
  • Operating point-of-sale equipment to conduct onboard ticket sales and collection
  • Preparing the vessel for daily operation including cleaning and set up
  • Assist Engineer during cast-off and docking operations, and stowing lines and equipment, as directed by the Ship’s Captain.
  • Be emergency prepared by training and participating in shipboard emergency drills and potential events including launching life rafts, providing customers lifejackets, fire fighting and first aid
  • Be familiar with city and river information, and be prepared to chat appropriately with guests. (This is the funnest part of the job!)

All Stewards will receive the Marine Emergency Duties training as provided by Prairie River Cruises Ltd., as well as additional specific training related to performance of required tasks.

Interested parties should contact  Joan Steckhan at office@theprairielily.com to discuss your interest and qualifications. You are also welcome to submit a resume for consideration.
