Auditions for Portland Walking Tours

Do you love Portland? Can you command a crowd, make them laugh, and have everyone eating out the palm of your hand? If so, then this is the job for you!

Portland Walking Tours is looking for fun and dynamic personalities to lead tours and other events. We are hiring over a dozen positions that are part-time and on-call. You must have leadership abilities, charisma, a sense of humor, great communication skills, and an obvious love of Portland. Since we run morning, afternoon, and evening events, you may work irregular hours with the the bulk done from April through November. We're an established company that's been around almost a decade and successful enough that during the regular tour season we run daily tours with over 40 events per week (not including dozens of private events). If you are interested in learning more about what we do, check out the Portland Walking Tours website or our sister companies Hometown Advantage and Run Brain Run.

Doing tours is a combination of thinking on your feet, advanced storytelling, and herding cats. We do all the training and get you up to speed on your missing knowledge of the city. Like all of us, once you're leading tours, you'll be amazed that you're getting paid for doing something so ridiculously fun. So, if you think you have the improv and leadership skills needed, then read on and apply before the audition slots are filled...

POSITION: Resident Expert (aka Tour Guide).

AUDITIONS: January 22 & 23 (which is this upcoming Saturday and Sunday).

CALLBACKS: Immediately thereafter.

REHEARSALS: Multiple days on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in February & March.

PAY: Once hired, starts at $11/hour + tips/gratuities. Tips will often triple that amount so it's not uncommon that most of us makes about $100/day. Also, some tours pay more than others, but you'll have to prove your mad skillz first.

Please send a single email with the following info to
1. The name of the position you are applying for in the subject line.
2. Full and current resume.

5. Preference for a morning or afternoon audition on January 22nd or 23rd.

If you do not supply these five (5) things, you will not be considered. If you are not available for the days of auditions, callbacks, or rehearsals, please do not apply.

A. If we see a good fit and there is still availability, we promise that we will email you with information for your audition date/time/location, what you will have to do at the audition, and more details on rehearsals & eventual employment.
B. Callbacks/interviews, if appropriate.

This position requires you to own a mobile phone and have desktop/laptop-based high-speed Internet access in your home and check your email at least once per day. If you do not have daily high-speed Internet access at home (and not your favorite coffee shop) and a cell phone, please do not apply.

This is a part-time and on-call position and not full-time. We are not interested in receiving information from outside agencies. Must be at least 21 years old and eligible for employment in U.S. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.
