Staff wanted at Skydive USA, Wharton

Skydive USA is in need of a few quality people. Their current volume has become too much for our small (but well paid) staff. Immediate need for AFF jumpmaster(s). Prefer multi-rated fulltimer(s) but will consider others. They will also need at least 1 more AFF rating holder and/or 1 Vector Tandem I by the end of February.

They are located near Houston, Texas (3rd largest market in the U.S. and the largest market in the south) and operate year-round, fulltime. Super Twin Otter, 182, plenty of business. Best pay in the market, terrific casual business environment. Fun drop zone, politics free.

They are looking for quality minded team players. If you're looking for a great place to grow and lots of autonomy and advancement opportunities, give them a call. You may be exactly what they are looking for.

Contact Rick Meyers at 281-561-JUMP or e-mail them at
