Job Description: Raft/Fishing Shop-Customer Logistics Assistant

Position: Part Time or Full Time available, usually 30 hours a week (Late June – August)

7:30am to Noon 4-5 days a week (usually but flexible for afternoon work)

Location: 39 Juniper Lane, Alberton MT 59820 – Cyr Recreation Area on the Clark Fork River

The Part Time Raft Shop and Logistics Assistant with Adventure Missoula is an important and dynamic position.  The working environment is energetic and fast-paced, especially during the summer.  Successful staff members thrive in that environment by being self-motivated and by working with existing team members (owners, raft guides, fishing guides) to develop effective communication and organizational skills. 

Main responsibilities of the Raft/Fishing Shop-Customer Logistics Assistant include helping at picking, packaging, and getting lunches ready when needed for trips. The Raft Shop and Logistics Assistant will also organize and clean gear, transport customers in our vans, clean the shop, water the produce in the garden, organize our retail area, water plants and flowers, and keep the shop running smoothly. The Assistant needs to be able to clearly and effectively communicate with customers and guides regarding trip details, shop equipment, and safely transport customers in company van to and from the shop to Missoula hotels or pick up sites.

Other daily duties include organizing equipment, weeding and watering the garden, cleaning vans, gassing them up, keeping the shop organized and checking trip schedules, and helping to pack up the guides/staff.  You should be able to lift 50 pounds and be comfortable working with web-based and Microsoft computer programs, google calendar, and basic mechanical tools.

Although not required, a background in outdoor recreation is helpful.  Experience rafting, kayaking, or fishing is also helpful, but not required.  We are willing to train a trustworthy candidate that displays the right temperament and personality for this position but lacks some of the desired experience.

The rewards of working at Adventure Missoula include a flexible schedule, working outside at an exciting work environment, being an integral part of our team and the opportunity to have a visible impact on the business if considering this field for the future.

Compensation is hourly, performance determined and based on related experience and is negotiable.  The Raft/Fishing Shop-Customer Logistics Assistant schedule can be flexible and could be perfect for an active student.  We offer a bonus structure for all our staff which includes access to gear deals, training for scenic or kayaking tours, training on whitewater, and experience with outdoor business management. 

Due to the safety and security needed at the shop and transporting customers, the minimum requirements for this position are:

  • Current valid state issued driver’s license
  • Preferably live within a 30-25 minute distance of location
  • This is an as needed position where you get to set your own hours of availability depending on need and the week
