more than a team,
a family

our mission
is to create:

luxurious everyday life for our clients through property transformations;

a redefinition of the industry through exceptionally high service standards;

and a positive culture for our employees that nurtures and facilitates growth without limits.

“The people I work with are some of the best people I know,” stated an employee in a 2021 anonymous satisfaction survey. “You take care of your employees and praise them,” said another.

“Everyone who works here matters; you aren’t just an anonymous face.” If you are ready to step into a new career with a fast-paced company and do work that matters within a positive work culture, apply online to join the Scooter’s team.

POSITIONS

Every person we welcome on to our team has potential to soar to great heights.

An entry level field position can quickly lead into the leadership of one crew or an entire service division, operations management, sales, or the opening of a new location. 

Please note: we promote to executive levels of leadership from within.

The potential to grow is limitless – and only stops at the point you can stop imagining.

Applications are kept on file for a period of 60 days. Applicants may be asked to participate in up to three in-person candidacy interviews prior to receiving a formal job offer.

All job offers are contingent on successfully passing a physical exam, vision test, illicit drug screening, and background check.

Members of leadership may be eligible to receive health insurance benefits, paid time off, incentive pay, a company cell phone, and opportunities to attend out-of-state and/or international professional development events.
