Careers & Internships
Employment opportunities exist at our weather station and Extreme Mount Washington museum on the summit of Mount Washington, and in our administrative offices and Weather Discovery Center museum in downtown North Conway, NH.
Summit positions require an eight-day shift on the mountain followed by six days off, while most valley positions follow a more typical Monday through Friday work week. Part-time and seasonal work is available, and we also offer a highly competitive internship program at our summit weather station.
Current openings, if any, are listed below. Thank you for your interest in working with us!
Extreme Mount Washington Museum Attendant
Full-time, seasonal position (mid-May through mid-October)
The Extreme Mount Washington museum attendant is responsible for the day-to-day operations of Extreme Mount Washington, Mount Washington Observatory’s brand new educational experience (opened May 2014) located in the Mt. Washington State Park Sherman Adams Visitor Center at the summit of Mount Washington.
The museum attendant works a standard summit shift week of eight days (Wednesday to the following Wednesday), followed by six days off (Wednesday night through the following Tuesday night). This position must reside at the summit of Mt. Washington in Mount Washington Observatory's living quarters for the duration of the eight-day shift. Transportation to and from the summit, bunkroom lodging and all meals are provided.
Candidates must be friendly and very comfortable speaking to visitors in an educational and retail setting. They must also be well versed in retail procedures appropriate to a high volume gift shop, including handling cash, merchandising, customer service, and cash register operation.
As the museum attendant lives and works at the summit with the rest of the weather station staff and volunteers, candidates must also be easy going and comfortable living in close quarters with people of different ages and backgrounds. For the right individual with a great attitude, this is a wonderful opportunity to live atop the tallest peak in the Northeast!
