Monster Truck Race Team Looking for a New Team Member (Kitsap County and Area)
We have a monster truck race team with seven trucks. The job will lead into a driving position of a monster truck. We have four high end haulers that you will eventually be trained to drive. We expect them to be taken care of as if they are your own babies which includes keeping them clean, polished and doing pre-trip checks on them. Be honest with yourself, if you keep your own vehicle trashed then you will not be able to take care of our stuff which will be unacceptable. These things are looked at as if they were John Force Race Team travelling down the road, so professional driving is needed at all times. This includes no screwing off mooning people or hooting and yelling out the windows. This is not a party this is our career.
All lodging is covered by us when we are on the road which is either a hotel, sharing rooms with other crew members, or staying in the haulers.
We believe heavily that your actions on and off the track are a reflection of us and ask for respect and manners whether it is for your crew members, track crew, hotel staff, restaurant staff, other teams, media, sponsors, fans, etc. I also expect 100% out of all of my crew so that problems can be caught and repaired before they become major problems. Most hotels are sponsored to us so we can not be trashing hotel rooms and you must be respectful of other guests. We are a team that works hand in hand with promotion companies and race tracks so keeping the facilities clean is a must as is making sure everything is professional looking. We have a pit bike and a pit quad that crew members are more than welcome to use, but use them with your head. Doing donuts in race track parking lots and screwing off at times is unacceptable. Don't mean to make it sound like they have to be driven like a Cadillac as there are times when we all do wheelies and tricks, but common sense must be used. The hygene of yourself is top priority for all times which includes cleaning hands and showering daily. We know you will be dirty while working, but making sure you are clean when the job is done or when we go out is what we are asking for.
The monster trucks need to be maintained and taken care of. If they don't work, you don't work. We need someone with common sense and realizes that these things are very expensive like a $20,000.00 motor and not like your $89.00 weed eater from Home Depot that you can just start up and hold wide open without checking the oil or just doing a visual inspection. This will all be things that you will be taught how to maintain, take care of and repair for all aspects of the trucks. We need that person that will listen, learn and remember. Everyday there is a list of items that need to be done and we can all team together and bust it out in five to six hours or we can all goof off all day and take 12 hours. Everybody is on salary so the more time you want for yourself depends on hard you work during the day. Some weeks are not that fun and some weeks are a blast. Some days we can work 12 - 14 hours and other days it can be 4 or 5 hours. Working with monster trucks is like having a membership to a crossfit gym and some days you are very tired and sore.
The number one steadfast rule we have is no drinking the day before a show or the day of a show. We do not tolerate drugs. We require you to wear black pants to displays and media events and during the show if you are not in your fire suit. You will need to keep a show bag with a clean shirt and black pants in the hauler or trailer for display and show days in case you have been working on trucks and get dirty as most times we can not make it back to the hotel to change. We would like you to wear black pants during work days as well because we deal with mud, dirt and oil and it just makes you look unprofessional when it is on blue jeans, but it is not required. We will supply you a couple t-shirts.
I hate to make this sound negative with rules all day long, but I am giving you the absolute worst because every Joe, Dick and Henry thinks monster trucks are cool and thinks they want to be a monster truck driver and treats it as if it is just a party. I am telling you all this because I need to find that person that has common sense, that can think about the next morning as well as what they are ding right then. Right now we have three guys working for us that are hard workers, but have the attention span of a shrub. We need to find someone that can decipher duties, look at the big picture, delegate and take charge during times when it is needed.
We want to see resumes. We want to see not so much a resume, but something that tells us about you which includes hobbies, what you have accomplished, what your drive is, skills and why you would like to do this. We want to know about you. If you think this is not for you there is no need to respond. If you only want to do this for a week or two there is no need to respond either. We want commitment. We also need someone with a clean record without any felonies as we travel to Canada and Europe. You will also need a passport. Must be able to travel approximately 40 weeks a year and be gone from home up to three months at a time. Through experience, crew with families do have a hard time being away for extended periods of time so please consider this prior. Should be mechanically inclined, be able to address problems and work towards repairing the issue, and know the basics of motors, rear ends, transmissions, drivelines, etc. Experience in operation of heavy equipment may be beneficial: example forklifts, bobcats, excavators, bulldozers. While we are on the road we pay a $100.00 food per diem.
