About Kodiak Raspberry Island Remote Lodge
HI! We are a second-generation family living on remote Raspberry Island, within the Kodiak Island Archipelago, Alaska. At our lodge, we host vacationers from around the world on fishing, sea kayaking, hiking, and fly out bear viewing trips from late May through late September. We hire a small team of just 6 people to join us here each summer. The work we do is involved, with often long hours, and can be hard! But, for the right candidate, the work, as well as our time off, is truly rewarding! Have a look at our website and job descriptions, and if all looks interesting, perhaps we'll meet you this summer on Raspberry Island!
The Employee Experience
Living and working here on Raspberry Island is a combination of supporting our guests' vacations while trying to squeak in a little time for ourselves in between! Raw wilderness surrounds our property and that's it... so if you enjoy the out of doors, this could be a great place to spend your summer! We offer a cozy team duplex on the property, complete with bathroom and laundry, great food served at the lodge, and time off during the day as well as one day off per week to enjoy and explore!
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 upfront 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 our small duplex staff cabin here on the property. It is heated, has indoor bathrooms with flush toilets and showers (nice for the wilderness), 24-hour electricity, and limited satellite internet use. All meals are provided.
Our team is paid an hourly wage, guaranteed hours, often receive gratuities from guests, and an 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.
