Room and Board
Housing in Alaska can be costly and difficult to obtain. ATA offers assistance locating housing to all employees. In the past, we have been able to obtain housing for employees for approximately $375 a month, a security deposit will be required in advance for this service. We recommend you bring bedding, kitchen items and other essentials. Plan on sharing a room with at least one other person. If you choose to seek other housing options, acquiring a place to stay well before the season starts is advisable.
ATA issues paychecks bi-weekly. You should arrive with enough money to survive until your first paycheck. Remember, the cost of living is high in Alaska. Compensation varies by position, the number of days you work, and your willingness to work. The average gross, pre-tax income for those available May through September is $7,000 to $10,000. Some positions have a performance bonus which employees may be eligible to receive after successfully completing the season. If you qualify for a bonus it will be based on Manager discretion and several performance factors. List your pay requirements on question 17.
Getting Here and Getting Around
ATA doesn't provide transportation to or from Alaska, however, for the most competitive airfare prices to Alaska you can call our reservation and ticketing office in Seattle at 1-800-323-5757. For ferry reservations, call the Alaska Marine Highway System, 1-800-642-0066. It would be helpful to bring some form of transportation with you (i.e. bike or car) for getting to and from work and around town.
