Jobs in the Spotlight

About Kiwanda Hospitality Group

We are a close-knit family of companies - emphasis on the 'family'.  Our team provides memorable guest experiences at Pelican Brewing Company, Headlands Coastal Lodge and Spa, and Stimulus Bakery.  Pacific City is a fun coastal town with outdoor activities a few steps from home and work.  Surf, hike, kayak, paraglide, fish, and a whole lot more.  Portland is a bus ride away offering nightlife, shopping, and concerts.  

You will leave this special place next to the Pacific Ocean with fond memories and lasting friendships.  We are good people seeking to work with other good people.

The Employee Experience

When you work with good people serving really fun guests, you look forward to it each day.  We take care of our people and provide an environment that is as fun as the beach we are located on.  When the work is done, it is time to get out and play surrounded by magnificent natural beauty with the friends who value it every bit as much as we do. We fish, we surf, we hike, we bike. We just kick back and tell stories to one another. And when we get up each morning, we face the new day refreshed with enthusiasm for the work we love. 

Ideal Candidate

Our ideal teammates enjoy transforming experiences into lasting memories.  Whatever they are undertaking, they are fully present and enjoying each guest interaction.  Strengths we will all share include:

  • Led by a strong moral compass - we can all count on each other to do the right thing
  • Enthusiasm for guest services
  • Team oriented
  • Pride in work
  • Dependable
  • Willingness to learn and grow

Room and Board

We have two beach houses and one farmhouse.  Homes are furnished and dorm style with shared kitchen, bath, and open areas to relax and visit.  Cost is $200 per month.  Homes are specific to female only or male only - no co-ed housing available.  All homes are within cycling or walking distance to outdoor activities and work.

Employee Perks

We regularly get together for family meals/lunch at the Pelican and Headlands restaurants as well as beach bon fires and employee appreciation BBQs.  In addition, enjoy employee discounts for meals.

Getting Here and Getting Around

Pacific City is located 2 hours away from Portland International Airport.  Arrive via bus from Portland or vehicle from your current location.  Outdoor activities and work are within cycling and walking distance.  Having a vehicle will enable you to travel to other areas for site-seeing.  

For Fun

Pacific City is relatively undiscovered.  We are known for surfing, hiking, cycling, and kayaking.  Bring your cameras!  The sunsets are incredible.
