About The Lodge at Whale Pass

The Staff Experience

The lodge operates seasonally (June through August) with a staff of between 20 and 25 serving up to 30 guests per day.  Most of the staff live on-site and all become part of a tight, hard working group demonstrating industry leading hospitality and providing guests with the vacation of a lifetime.  We are a family run business and our core operating philosophy is that the employee comes first.  We endeavor to provide them with all of the tools they need and a comfortable and well defined work environment so that they can focus on satisfying our guests.

While staff is hired for specific jobs, everyone takes responsibility to serve the guests.  This is done in a remote environment, lacking many of the conveniences of the modern world, which requires an ability to take initiative and to be comfortable with constant change and challenges.  Living with your co-workers heightens the need for staff to work well with each other.  The reward is a valuable experience that will serve you well in all future employment endeavors and the formation of life-long friends.  Travel expenses between Seattle and the lodge are reimbursed when the summer job commitment is met and housing and food is provided as part of the terms of employment. The ideal candidate possesses a love of the outdoors and is smoke and drug free.
