Deck Staff Job Requirements

  • Commit to working from Memorial Day through the end of the season.
  • Work day starts promptly at 9:00am and will go to 7pm – 
    • On a weekday staff get a 2 hour break.  However due to the large number of chairs on the weekends it is strongly advised that the deck staff may need to stay late and should work out an adequate break schedule with the supervisor.
    • All chairs and umbrellas need to be properly identify both with members Locker numbers and corresponding tape if you have engaged a particular deck staff to tend to their chairs and umbrellas. 
  • The Beach
    • The main job is to organize and maintain all of the members’ beach chairs and umbrellas. Set them up as needed and return all chairs and umbrellas at the end of the day.  
    • This means all chairs should be upright in stacks and umbrellas should be not laying down, instead upright.
    • If a chair or umbrella is broken it must be shown to the member to see if they want to replace it or throw it out. 
    • Beach chairs and umbrellas for non-setups should be stored in two central locations or easily accessible to find.
    • At 5pm or sooner the entire deck staff that is working that day will begin to “clean up” the beach by putting the chairs and umbrellas against the wall neatly.
  • Helping the Members
    • If a member needs help finding a chair, umbrella, carrying items down or any other job related duty,  the staff member will immediately help them or find the responsible deck staff if practical.
    • All members should be treated with the same respect and attention.  
    • If you are helping another member with something, tell the new member that you will either find someone who is free to help them or that you will do so as soon as you finish helping the first member. 
  • Garbage: 
    • Will be checked periodically and taken out if needed
    • At the end of the day all garbage must be take off the beach
    • At no point will there be multiple filled garbage bags in one location – they must be brought up to the dumpster as soon as they are filled, either by walking them up or the John Deere.
  • Boardwalk 
    • Will be swept periodically throughout the day. 
  • The Deck
    • Should be kept neat and free of clutter such as broken umbrellas and personal gear. 
  • The Lifeguard Shack
    • Is used to store Lifeguard equipment and is the responsibility of the Guards.  
    • It is not to be used as a staff “hangout” or lunch room.  
  • Set ups for tipping members 
    • At times members will ask Staff to set up their chairs and umbrellas on a regular basis.  Oftentimes these members offer to tip staff for this extra service.  At no time will employees negotiate with members on a set price.  Tipping is at the discretion of the members.  At no time should employees contact members in order to “send them a bill” for services provided.  Providing this extra service should not interfere with the regular job of servicing all members by setting them up on a as needed basis. 
    • You are in no way a private contractor: you are an employee of the Allenhurst Beach Club. 
    • Pre-set ups should be completed before 10 am. 
    • This extra service is permissible members to make; so long as the required and regular duties of the deck staff are being met.
    • If one cannot meet the requirements of the deck staff job they will be removed from the deck staff. 
    • All set up chairs and umbrellas will each be marked with a specific color, to represent the specific person setting them up.
    • All umbrellas must be marked 12 inches from the bottom point of the umbrella.
      • This is to help insure beach safety
      • All umbrellas will be put in at least to that marker of 12 inches or more. 
    • The set ups should not be too close to the lifeguard stands or on top of any other set ups.
