Thank you for applying for a position with Miller’s Landing. The best time to apply is from November 1st through February. *We allow through December 31st for returning employees to let us know if they are coming back and then begin to hire new hires afterward.
A resume is also much appreciated.
Our season is May 15th to September 7th to 15th. We do hire SOME staff before that or after that and we do allow SOME staff to leave early. We would not be able to consider applications for those not being able to work close to those dates.
We would need you to agree to the following conditions:
Working any schedule asked with knowledge that schedules can change at any time for any reason.
We do not hire persons who work two positions because our schedules can change.
If two people are hired that are friends/relatives we do not guarantee same shifts/same days off.
We do not allow time off once the season begins as it is only a 4 month season. If you need time off for traveling, visitors, weddings, etc we would not be able to accommodate those requests.
Smoke breaks are only permitted if you clock out for a minimum of 20 minutes each time when taking a smoke break.
All employees are required to take a one hour lunch break part way through their day. Employees are not allowed to wait to take their lunch break at the end of their shift.
If employees are repeatedly late to work, or not available to work, we will likely replace them.
NO cell phone calls or texting allowed when working other than communications with Miller’s Landing.
No alcohol or drugs are allowed in the office, Bunkhouse or inside of wall tents.
We are not able to house family, friends, pets at Miller’s Landing if you work here.
We have a limited amount of bunkhouse space and returning employees and employees with seniority are given first preference. Bunkhouse space is $200 a month. Bunkhouse rooms have 2 to 3 persons to a room.
We do have ample tent camping space for employees at $100 a month. We also have some “wall tents” for full time full season employees and once that runs out you would need to provide your own tent. Our old bunkhouse is $150 a month. Camper space is available in employee designated locations in the campground for $150 a month. There are no electric sites available, so it must be 100% propane powered for lights and heat. No water will be provided to the campsite. You must have full coverage insurance and current licence plate tags to park a camper.
Miller’s Landing does not provide any transportation or food for employees.
We are not responsible for cost of airfare or transportation to get to work.
Employees MUST provide proof of a plane ticket (i.e. a copy of your plane itinerary) by no later than March 15th if hired. Miller’s Landing reserves the opportunity to rehire for your position if you have not secured a plane ticket by May 15th and you do not live nearby.
The benefits of working at Miller’s Landing are the best recreational benefits of anywhere in Alaska. Our employees get excellent in depth training for kayaking and deckhanding. We also provide free fishing charters, free kayaking lessons, guided trips and rentals.
