It's nearly summertime, and if you've got JOBS IN GREAT PLACES® - you've got a HUGE summer ahead, filled with the wonder and magic that the rest of us try to pack into our one week vacations. We wish we could've packed ourselves in your suitcases. We wish that we could apply for that last crew position that you have on your roster, yet to be filled. But we're happy and excited at the next best thing - a front row seat to the great adventures from the start of your summer season.

We are excited to announce the #CoolWorksJobs Kickoff to Summer Photo Contest! May 22nd through June 1st, 2106. 
There are great prizes to be won, check out all the details here: GO TO CONTEST

I will. As of our last talk last week he's still one expediter short. Send me some contact info for him.

Patty, I couldn't find any available positions where you are.  Maybe you could ask Rick about it?

Comment by Patty Brown on May 4, 2016 at 8:44am
Tour desk top is on the hotel side. We are in Transportation and yes we are here now. Orientation starts today.
Comment by Patty Brown on May 4, 2016 at 8:43am
Hey Shere. I'll see Rick shortly and tell him about your application. Glad you got that in.
Denali Lodge is about 2 hours north of us. Haven't worked there. Hope we can get it figured out for you and get you onboard.
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner...Wi-Fi not up and running yet.

Patty Brown, Just wanted to let you know I did complete an application last night together with my resume and listed you as having referred me.  There wasn't any way to direct it to Rick Tingstad, there also wasn't anything open at McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge, but I did find three opening at Denali Lodge, which I assume is in the same area.  Thanks so much for your help.  Praying I get the opportunity to meet you in person.  It sounds like a great place to work and right up my alley!

Patty Brown, I don't see a way to get my application and/or resume directly to Rick Tingstad.  I also don't see a listing for an Expediter at any of the locations.  If I go in under Transportation & Guest Service Jobs, the only thing I see that I would be able to do is Tour Desk Representative.  Is that by any chance, the position you are talking about?  Do you work there now?

Thank you!

Comment by Patty Brown on May 3, 2016 at 9:04pm
McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge. I guess it could be listed as an Expediter. Put attn Rick Tingstad. And that I referred you.
Comment by Shere Keegan on May 3, 2016 at 8:18pm

Patty,what is McKinley?  And I can't find anything for Transportation Service Reps.  Is that a company name?

Comment by Patty Brown on May 3, 2016 at 6:38pm
Have you found anything? McKinley is still hiring. Don't know about tours, but Transportation Service Reps .
