Dear Applicant:
The following is an employment application form that should be completed and returned to us. This will give us the information needed to consider you for any job openings that become available. As you may know, we hire approximately 60 seasonal employees each year to operate checkpoints and maintain campsites at various locations in northern Maine. If you have a specific area in mind you would like to work, please let us know this on the attached application.

Most employees return year after year, but occasionally openings become available. Our operating season runs from May until the end of November. The previous year's employees are contacted in the middle of March and they have two weeks or so to let us know if they are planning to return. From mid-March to mid- April, openings are filled. If you do not hear from us by the end of April, there were no openings appropriate for your qualifications or request. Openings occasionally occur in mid-season and we will keep your application on file until next March.

Most positions are 40 hours per week. Time and one-half is paid for hours over 40 hours per week. Double time is paid to employees working holidays.

Some positions may require living at the checkpoint during the shift. If this is the case, North Maine Woods provides for lights, furniture, heat and a gas stove. The employee must provide transportation to the job, food, clothing, dishes, cooking utensils and bedding.

For those on campsite work, they may need to supply their own vehicle for hauling tools and materials. They will be reimbursed the allowed reimbursement rate as set by the IRS.

If you have any questions, please contact us using the information above. Thank you,
