Foggy Mountain Shop has been outfitting locals and tourists for everything from once in a lifetime expeditions to everyday adventures for over forty-five years. We're intent on contributing to our local outdoors scene by maintaining a culture of stoke, curiosity, and community and are passionate about getting customers set up with what they need to get after it.
In the summer season, international and domestic visitors arrive via cruise ship, ferry, and air and locals are also hungry to take advantage of our extended daylight hours and extraordinarily diverse terrain. To keep up with that influx of stoke, we’re looking for solid, motivated individuals to join our summer sales crew.
Our ideal candidate has both professional experience in outdoor retail and/or customer service and personal/practical experience in utilizing the kinds of gear we sell, indicating interests in outdoor adventuring (e.g. backpacking, climbing, trail running, etc.). That candidate's enthusiasm for both the outdoor sports and the gear itself will be evident, demonstrated via self-motivated curiosity and a clear interest in learning about the constantly evolving world of outdoor retail and mountain culture.
Putting the gear we sell to the test is part of the job at Foggy Mountain Shop. We sell the brands and products we’ve been most impressed with on our own adventures and carry those choice brands that hold up to Southeast Alaska’s climate, including Arc’teryx, Patagonia, Rab, The North Face, Smartwool, Salomon, LaSportiva, Osprey, Black Diamond, Petzl, MSR, and more. It's expected that our employees share our interest in getting out into the wilderness and building experience by utilizing and playing with the products we sell, which is really the reason we're all in this industry in the first place!
Our 2020 summer season begins with the first cruise ship arriving April 24th and finishes with the last cruise ship on October 6th. Our ideal candidate is available full-time for the entirety of the season, though we're flexible with start and end dates to accommodate the right applicant(s). There may also be opportunities for year-round employment. Starting pay is $12-$15 DOE.
