  2. Pay rate is $14.50-$28/hour for chauffeur or chauffeur/tour guide and other hourly reservations depending on which vehicle you drive & the type of reservation.  Typically those qualified to drive the large mini-bus will receive the higher pay rate.   Prep/travel pay of $14.50/Hour before and after tours applies. Typically 6-24/hours a week is offered during the tour season (April-October), but no hours are guaranteed.  Off-season hours fluctuate, and are usually lesser than on-season hours.  No hours are guaranteed during the on or off season.  Hours could be less or more, depending on the # of reservations.  Work is not guaranteed, though we try to maximize the hours of those who demonstrate an eagerness to work and show good availability. 

  3. This position typically also includes airport service, and a preference is given to the candidate who is interested in and is able to accomplish this. The hours for this are potentially around-the-clock, but you do not have to be available for each of these jobs.  The airport pay rate is a % of the completed job, currently 40%.

Initial employment start-up costs are approximately $200.  This cost is for the City of Portland Driver Permit (City fees: DMV & criminal background check etc.), which is required.  Subsequent annual driver permit renewals of approx. $100 apply.
