Due to the number of VIP guests that utilize the club and resort properties, associates are not allowed to discuss their interactions or take pictures with these guests for personal or use on social media. The level of service expected is that of a five-star resort where at any time the associate is in uniform, they conduct themselves as if they were on the job. Under no circumstances should an associate behave in a negative or unprofessional manner while wearing any logoed item indicating a representation of St. Joe Club & Resorts. Training: While completing an internship at St. Joe Club & Resorts, if there is any additional internal training being conducted, the Intern will be provided the opportunity to attend. We feel it is important for the Interns to be included in as many aspects of the operations as possible and have interactions with as many departments as possible. Through the training opportunities, the intern will be able to gain additional perspective regarding the company direction and expectations. Appearance Standards: All employees of St. Joe Club & Resorts present a professional, neat appearance at all times. Company issued uniforms must be neat, cleaned and pressed if necessary. Makeup worn during shift must be neutral and discreet. Females are permitted to wear earrings for one piercing. Males are not permitted to wear any piercings.

We also have a monthly meeting of the Bookworms book club, development workshops, classroom and computer based learning, and potential tuition reimbursement for continued education and certifications in the field.

    What Will I Be Doing?

    As a Recreation intern, you will spend much of your time at your assigned location. Your internship will be primarily focused on your area of Beach Chairs, Beach Club, or Kids Activities. With this internship, you will have the opportunity to attend staff management meetings, assist in leading daily standups, attend development workshops, participate in the Bookworms book club, Community Involvement activities, and be exposed to management-level responsibilities. Much of your exposure will greatly depend on your initiative, work attitude and overall service delivery.**All recreation positions will be outside and you must be able to withstand working in the extreme outdoor conditions.** Beach Chairs is a large operation where guests and homeowners in the community rent chairs at the beach to spend their day relaxing and enjoying the gorgeous beach. With this internship, you would be expected to assist with setup, guest service, periodic cleanup, renting watersport items, and breakdown at the end of the days. The setup for chairs begins around 6:00 a.m. and the day usually winds down around 8:00 p.m. (after Daylight savings time). You may be required to work the entire day at our properties with a smaller operation or on very busy chair days. This position is heavy guest service with the perk of spending the day in the sun. It is a very physical job in the mornings and evenings so you must be able to lift and carry at least 50 lbs. to set up the chairs along the beach front. Beach Club Attendants are part of our private beach club operations ensuring that only eligible members enter the beach clubs. This is also heavy guest service oriented as you would be the point of contact for many questions a guest or homeowner may have. This position includes assisting homeowners with beach chair reservations, booking bonfires for guests, and communicating club rules to persons at the beach club. These positions are not as physical as the Beach Chair. The person in this position must be able to assist with the towel cleanup at the end of the business day. This may include carrying the towel bundles to the designated place for the cleaning company to pick up. If you enjoy events, this area is utilized for Bonfire events and other special events that take place on property. Kids Activities is part of our offering for families bringing their children to the beach club. The Kids Activities attendants are responsible for determining the weekly schedule of activities and actual implementation of the program. Must be willing and able to be involved with the kids during activities, including those outdoor activities in our hot climate of the area. This is an ideal opportunity for students seeking to be in recreation and have camp experience.

    What Experience is Needed to Be Successful?

    We prefer Junior or Senior level students pursuing a degree program in Hospitality, Resort Management, Restaurant Management, or related degree programs to our service offerings. Due to our operations happening 24/7, you must be flexible with your hours, willing work morning and evening shifts. It is mandatory that you are available to work weekends and holidays. It is ideal for you to have experience in customer service, and truly be passionate providing service from the heart, a commitment to servicing the team and quest in a leadership role that displays an optimistic attitude to doing whatever it takes to make our guest, members and staff happy.

    What are the Physical Requirements of the Job?

    In Recreation, you must be able to stand and/walk for an entire shift (between 8-12 hours), must be able to bend and stoop to pick up items from the floor or in cabinets, and be able to actively engage in games with the children (if applicable) including the ability to swim or be in the water. Must be able to carry items weighing up to 25 lbs and sometimes up to 50 lbs. If you are in the Beach Chairs or Attendants, you will need to be able to lift/carry over 50 lbs.
