You will support our journey by:
The PGE Parks team is seeking customer-centric employees. PGE promotes diversity, equality and inclusion, and we expect every employee to treat each guest with the highest level of respect. You will meet many guests who have complaints. You have to be very comfortable turning unhappy customers into happy guests. We want you to be intentional about every choice you make and think about how your actions will make the customer feel or say about PGE Parks. We are seeking employees who are eager to delight every customer equally. We need positive problem-solvers that are always looking to make the customer experience positive.
This is an outdoor job, and you’ll be outside all day. You need to be comfortable working in rain or heat. The early weeks in May and June might be rainy, but by July 4th the rain normally is completely gone and with the exception of a few days, the season will be dry to the end of September. The temperatures are usually cool (50s and 60s) in the evenings with very low humidity but will be in the 70s to 90s during the day. Again, this depends upon the exact location of the campgrounds. The higher the elevation the cooler the temperatures. In almost all areas the main camping happens between July 4 and Labor Day. Memorial Day is also crowded, but June usually gives you a chance to gradually get used to working in the campgrounds.
We start our hiring process in October and continue through January. The earlier you commit to working with Portland General Electric, the better the chances are that you will get the location that you want.
You will bring the following skills to our team:
Must be able to operate park vehicles at any time of day or night.
Basic understanding of general office procedures.
Working knowledge of basic maintenance and landscape tools.
Must have a valid driver’s license with evidence of safe driving habits.
Excellent customer service skills and able to work independently and on a team.
Flexibility with work assignments and job duties.
Organized individual that can plan their day to complete all their tasks safely.
We can conduct interviews over the phone. As part of the hiring process, our job offers are contingent upon passing a drug screen (following federal guidelines), physical, and a criminal background, professional references, and driving checks.
