Tourism Team Member Referral Program

Tourism Innovation Seasonal

The Gateway Arch and Riverboats at the Gateway Arch are always looking for great team members, and we know many of you already knew someone here or someone suggested that you apply. We are asking you to do the same for a friend or family member!


If you know someone you want to refer for employment with BSD, we would like to hear from you. If that person is hired and successfully completes their first 30 days of employment you will receive $125; and an additional $125 after 150 days if the referred team member remains employed with a positive attendance point balance.

Positions eligible for the Referral Program will include:

  • Cashier
