WEST GLACIER - Glacier National Park is looking to hire people to fill support positions throughout the park for the 2023 season.
Affordable housing is available with most positions at the park with a news release noting "that by gaining valuable experience, a seasonal position can be the gateway to establishing a career in federal service."
“Seasonal positions are the backbone of Glacier National Park,” said Glacier National Park Superintendent Dave Roemer. “We can’t operate the park at full capacity without them, and park amenities offered this summer will be in direct correlation with how many people we can hire.”
Positions available include but are not limited to Park Ranger, Visitor Services Assistant, Biological Science Technician, Forestry Technician, Dispatcher, Equipment Operator, Maintenance Worker (Trails and others), Laborer, Automotive Worker, Carpenter, Masonry Worker, Volunteer Program Assistant, and more.
