Come work in Denali for the summer!
"Our employees are our most valuable asset."
Spending a summer in Denali National Park is truly a life altering experience. Many people come to work in Alaska for a summer and end up spending a lifetime.
Our restaurant is locally owned and operated by Denali Visions 3000 Corporation. This small Alaskan business is headed by two young, (well, kind of young), fellows who first came to Denali as seasonal employees. The partners love the park and feel blessed to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. They place a high value on hiring like-minded employees and aim to be the best employer in the area.
This is a fast-paced bar, restaurant, and lodging facility that strives to be the best eating, drinking, and entertainment establishment in Denali. We take great pride in serving high quality meals and providing exceptional service to our guests. We are looking for hard working, fun-loving individuals to help accomplish our mission. We value our reputation of being a "cool place to work" and we are proud of the fact that we have many employees return summer after summer.
The reason our restaurant is such a great place to work is that we promote teamwork and hold our employees to the highest of standards within a casual, fun atmosphere. If you work well with others and take pride in doing a good job, you will enjoy working for us.
Before you fill out an online application please understand that if you are hired, we will have high expectations of you and your job performance!
Life Living & Working in Denali with us
The restaurant is located at the entrance to Denali National Park. We are one of the few independently owned operations left in the Denali, and are surrounded by giant corporate hotels, which bring hundreds of thousands of guests to the area every season.
We and all the other area hotels hire thousands of people from around the world to come to Denali and work in their businesses. All local employers provide housing for their employees. Life in Denali is a lot like going to summer camp when you were a kid, where for 4 months you will work, live, and play together with people from all around the world.
Most of our employees live at one of our base camp housing areas. Both complexes are located in the wonderful year-round town of Healy, Alaska - 10-miles north of the entrance to Denali. When we first purchased The Bake, the only employee housing available was without heat and electricity. As we grew we were determined to find a great place for our employees to live. In 2009, we purchased Healy Base Camp, which housed 30 employees. Jumping forward to the present, we have built Base Camp into a wonderful little community of approximately 90 employees complete with an employee recreation room and brand new private shower house. Base Camp will be your home while working in Denali.
Each room at Base Camp has 2-single beds and basic amenities, and the toilets and showers are located in a nearby bathhouse. If you’re coming to Alaska with a friend, you can opt to room together.
Rent at Base Camp for 2014 is $12 per day, which will be deducted from your biweekly paycheck. Rent includes heat, electricity, wifi, a daily continental breakfast in the employee recreation room, and free transportation on our shuttle bus. It also qualifies you to take part in the Base Camp meal plan (see below). A security deposit is required at the beginning of the season.

Items purchased through our employee meal plan are not transferable and cannot be shared. Certain items, such as King Crab Legs & Halibut Entrees, are not included in the meal plan.

You can order a $13 hamburger, a $15 small pizza, a $16 salad, or $14 Nachos for only $3.Note that there are designated times to participate in the meal plan since we do not have a dining room for employees..
