We are a well-established company that offers boat cleaning and detailing services in the greater Seattle area. At different times throughout the year, we have extra work and need to hire additional detailers to wash or wax boats. Here is some information about the job and requirements.

Job Information

  • You must have previous experience cleaning, washing or detailing boats or cars.
  • You must have reliable transportation that can carry your gear and supplies to and from the boat. (A bike or motorcycle/scooter isn’t acceptable.)
  • You must have a cell phone so you can easily communicate with us while on the job.
  • You must be physically able to do the job. Light lifting is required (a power buffer, gallon jugs of wax, etc).
  • The boats we work on are located at marinas between Everett and Des Moines. The majority of boats are located in the Seattle and Bellevue area. You must be willing and able to travel between those locations.
  • All detailing gear and supplies will be provided for you.
  • We are looking for someone who is hard working, trustworthy and reliable and who can act maturely and professionally while working on boats (as our customers are sometimes on the boat). Smoking is not allowed anywhere near the boats, the docks or the marinas.
  • We work on boats any time from Monday through Friday during daylight hours. There is no evening work available and very little weekend work.We offer part time work (around 15 to 25 hours per week) as well as more full time work (around 25 to 35 hours per week).
  • You will often work on your own, but on larger boats, you may work with some of the other detailers on our crew.

About Our Interviews
In addition to meeting you in person and talking with you more about the position, we will also have you spend a few minutes working on a boat to show us your washing or waxing skills (depending on the position you’re applying for).

Our detailers are either paid by the hour or as a percentage of the job depending on the position. Most of our detailers earn an average of around $15 to $25 per hour based on their experience and skill level.
