Front Gate Cashier – Part Time

Front Gate

Our Front Gate Cashiers are an essential part of our overall operations for the park, if not for them then we would have no one there to let people into the Maui Ocean Center to enjoy their park experience. The Front Gate Cashiers do mostly admissions into the park and need to know and learn how to ring up and work with each different type of admission. The Front Gate can, at times, be a very busy fast-paced environment so the ability to operate in that type of environment is key for our Front Gate cashiers. The daily work up at the Front Gate is mostly computer based, so being computer literate is necessary to become a successful part of the Front Gate team.
