Key Team Players Needed at our unique Operation in SE Alaska
The Lodge at Whale Pass is a luxury lodge in the heart of the Inside Passage catering to families, couples, corporate groups, and avid anglers seeking an active vacation. Our goal is to provide unique experiences, enhanced by the natural beauty of southeast Alaska. We seek to excel in hospitality services and provide the finest accommodations and food and beverage operation in Alaska.
The Lodge at Whale Pass is located on Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska.
About The Lodge at Whale Pass
The lodge operates seasonally (June through August) with a staff of between 20 and 25 serving up to 30 guests per day.
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.
The Employee Experience
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.
The ideal candidate possesses a love of the outdoors and is smoke and drug free.
Room and Board
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.
Getting Here and Getting Around
Employees fly into Ketchikan and then get to the lodge by float plane or ferry.
