- This Watercraft Detailing Manager position is a mixture of manual labor and manager. You will be the final say for each boat and jet ski that is detailed at GK’s Custom Polishing, Inc. Final quality of each item detailed is very important.
- This job requires you to use a hand, high speed buffer. This hand machine is used to polish boats. This requires that you are comfortable on your knees. We do have a full line of knee pads to utilize if so desired. If you have had problems with your knees in the past, then this is probably not the job for you.
- These tasks are not difficult, but need to be completed at a very high level of quality. GK’s reputation has been built on the quality of work performed for customers. There are no excuses for poor or unsatisfactory workmanship. Employee needs to be responsible, reliable, and attentive to a high level of work quality.
- If being outside in the sun is a problem – then this job is probably not for you.
- Most days you will leave the building at 7am in teams of 2 and travel (up to 1 hour each way) to a marina located on the coast of Lake Erie with all your boat detailing supplies. Once at the marina, you will detail a boat (clean, polish and wax) and then return to the shop at the end of the day. Boat detailing work is usually done outside during the spring, summer and fall and then inside during the winter. Boat detailing work usually ends when the boat is completed, which means that in many cases jobs will be completed after 5pm.
- Boat detailing regularly requires employees to work on ladders and scaffolding to detail the hull and topsides of a boat. This work requires employees to sometimes be on a ladder and/or scaffolding. Employee must feel comfortable at working up to 20 feet on one of the above items.
- On a daily basis the boat detailing trailer will need to be cleaned, products re-filled, wash (or should it say laundry) done and other miscellaneous duties. These duties are part of your job description.
