PURPOSE 

Are you ready to dive into the heart of the action as a Water & Ice Warrior at San Diego Pride? Your mission: to keep our vendors and Pride teams refreshed and energized throughout the festivities!

As a Water & Ice Seller, you'll be the guardian of hydration, completing sales transactions with lightning speed and precision. You'll handle cash and credit transactions like a pro, ensuring every exchange is seamless and accurate.

But that's not all – you'll also be the deliverer of icy relief, cruising through the festival on a golf cart to bring water and ice to remote booths. Safety is our top priority, so you'll handle carts with the utmost care, ensuring the well-being of our guests at all times.

Reporting to the Water & Ice Sales Supervisor and Coordinator, you'll be part of an elite team dedicated to keeping the energy high and the spirits soaring. So, if you're ready to be a hero of hydration and ice-cool convenience, join us as a Water & Ice Warrior and let's make a splash at San Diego Pride!
