The Alaska Zoo operates through winter with core, permanent part-time or full-time positions. We hire through spring and summer for our busy season.


Customer Service Openings

Customer service openings: We have positions that open in customer service areas throughout the year. These areas include Admissions, Coffee Shop and Gift Shop.

Most positions are part-time or full-time seasonal, with some opportunity for permanent employment given strong job performance and the zoo's needs.

We accept completed job applications year round for these areas and we keep them on file for review when openings occur. Please download our job application, print it, complete it and give it to us in one of two ways:

  • If you are applying for Gift Shop or Admissions positions, drop the completed application off at Admissions during open zoo hours. You may include a resume (optional).

  • If you are applying for Coffee Shop positions, drop the completed application off at the Coffee Shop during open zoo hours or email it to coffeeshop@alaskazoo.org.

  • You may also email your completed application (resume optional) to our office at aom@alaskazoo.org.
