Dream Job: Zamboni Driver Needed, No Experience Necessary
One West Michigan ice arena is in need of a few good Zamboni drivers.
Can you handle the pressure of driving a Zamboni?
Plan for anywhere from zero to hundreds of people staring at you while you try to drive a straight line.
The NHL's senior director of facilities told Men's Journal it's not a easy as it looks. He said, "People don't realize how tough it is to drive in a straight line for 200 feet. And when you don't drive in a straight line, I'm pretty sure there are fans all over the league who will let you know about it."
Yes, be prepared for hecklers. Also, you'll become an instant celebrity and kids will demand that you wave at them.
You'll need nerves of ice to stay smooth under the pressure.
Want to drive a Zamboni? Here's your chance.
Southside Ice Arena, on 100th St. by US-131 in Byron Center, is looking for part-time Zamboni drivers. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and have a valid drivers license. No experience is necessary. If interested you should contact Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org.
