ANNUAL SEASONAL POSITIONS – “PELICANS”
The regular season deadline has passed but we will be looking for end of season applicants for mid-August to mid-September!
What does it mean to be a Pelican?
Message from Star Island CEO Joe Watts:
My Pelican summers were some of the most enriching and enjoyable experiences of my life. It is always rewarding to see Pels bond with our guests, the island, and each other in ways that can last a lifetime.
So, what makes a successful Pelican? In addition to normal qualifications, like being reliable, responsible, hard-working and presentable, we seek candidates (18 years or older) who will be especially safe, cooperative, and respectful, who can thrive in the close working and living quarters of our remote setting.
Beyond these essential attributes, we will be strongly focused on candidates who would contribute to our mission of hospitality and participate in forming a healthy island-wide community.
We appreciate your consideration of what we are looking for in our Pelicans. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
