The Employee Experience
Each of our available positions represents an integral member of a tightly woven team living on a remote island far from the conveniences of normal, modern civilization, whose primary goal is to present our international visitors with a safe, comfortable, and enriching experience in Alaska’s Wild. We seek personable, responsible, and respectable men and women who welcome our direction yet are confident in approaching the task at hand autonomously. Your persona will not only be part of our visitor’s experience to Kodiak Raspberry Island Remote Lodge; you will also be an influence to our two young children and an important constituent of the support system for Tiffany, Birch and the rest of our team. In turn, we offer the rewards of living in this spectacular environment, surrounded be interesting and successful people visiting from around the world, and a family atmosphere we hope you become part of.
Our ideal candidate is someone who can quickly become part of our team, embracing this likely different environment and lifestyle, and approaching all of this with a positive, ‘can -do’ attitude. We look for quick learners who aren’t dismayed by direction yet can approach each situation autonomously while seeing the ‘big picture.’ Whether behind the scenes as a Camp Hand or up front as a Guide or Chef, each member of our team has a tremendously important impact on our guest’s vacation, which ultimately determines the success of their trip and our success as a team and business. Finally, we are looking for members who can love and enjoy the area we live in as much as we do.
Room and Board
Our team stays in a co-ed staff cabin here on the property. It is heated, and has indoor bathrooms with flush toilets and showers (nice for the wilderness), 24 hour electricity, and limited satellite internet use. All meals are provided.
Monthly salary, generous tipping, end of season bonus. Awesome remote location, small team, ‘off the beaten path’ type clientele. Room and board included. Fantastic opportunities to enjoy and immerse yourself in the area we call home.
Getting Here and Getting Around
You’ll need to fly through Anchorage, Alaska, and on to Kodiak City. We’ll typically pick you up in Kodiak for the boat or plane ride out to the lodge.
Team members enjoying their days off are welcome to use our kayaks and/or hiking trails around the lodge, relax, sleep in, enjoy our extensive video library, and so on. This is an amazing, beautiful place, and opportunities abound. You will meet people from around the world, who in many cases may be able to offer you constructive input and professional connection. Your office will be in the middle of the remote Alaskan wilderness on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Your apartment is one of the top lodges on Kodiak and in Alaska, and your restaurant is appreciated by travelers from the world over. Among these the true opportunity of this job lies; it is up to you to make the most of it.
