Crew Trainer Frequently Asked Questions About Employment

  • What is the difference between seasonal, part-time and full-time?
    • Seasonal and part-time positions do not come with benefits or a guaranteed set of hours like a full time position does.
      • As a seasonal employee, you are hired on a six-month requisition and can work as many hours as allowed by your availability.
      • Part-time employees are hired to work a maximum average of 29 hours per week through the course of a full year. This may mean that you work more than 29 hours in a particular week depending on your availability but that the average for 52 weeks must be 29 hours or fewer.
  • Who do I contact to check on the status of my application?
    • You can reach our recruitment manager at 256-721-5488 to check the status of your application. When you submit your application, you will receive an email from our system. Most contact with our applicants is made through email, so please be sure to list an email address on your application.
  • How long is training?
    • Training lasts two to four weeks, on average, depending on the program and season.
  • Is training paid?
    • Yes, all training for our positions is paid. Sometimes it is paid hourly, and other times you are paid on a stipend. Upon hire, you will be informed of how you'll be paid during training.
  • What if I need time off?
    • Once training is complete, you will fill out a time-off request and submit it to the scheduling office. Time off is granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Time off is not guaranteed if the needs of the Center require your attendance.
  • Who can be a reference?
    • Teachers, religious leaders, coaches, co-workers or employers are a few examples. Friends or family members may not serve as references.
  • Can my transcripts be unofficial?
    • Yes.
  • Can I bring a car?
    • Yes, although you are not required to. Free parking is available.
  • What is the dress code?
    • All employees are expected to abide by our company's uniform policy which is detailed in our Employee Handbook. We expect employees to look fresh, well-groomed, and have a natural appearance at all times. A uniform will be supplied to you should your position require one, and your manager will go over more in-depth department policies with you at the beginning of your employment.
  • Do you do telephone interviews if I don't live nearby?
  • What kind of hours would I work?
    • The hours you will work depends on your position's status (seasonal, part-time, or full-time). Often, our employees work up to 40 hours per week, sometimes more than 40, depending on the season.
  • Who can live onsite?
  • What is the onsite housing like?
    • Dorm style, approximately 10'x10' with two beds and storage, same gender roommates, and not directly with the Camp program participants.
  • What is the difference between a level 2 and level 3 Crew Trainers?
    • The difference is pay and availability. Level 3 Trainers require open availability to work any shift on any day (including both Saturday and Sunday) from 6:15 a.m. – 11 p.m. Level 2 Trainers can be subcategorized into Day, Night or Weekend availability, or any combination of those three.
  • What do I need to complete if I am a returning Crew Trainer?
    • You are only required to do the online application. You do not have to resubmit letters or transcripts. Depending on the program, you may be required to re-interview.
