    Types of Alaska Rail Tour Jobs

    Alaska rail tour jobs offer a wide array of onboard- and ground-based positions. Alaska rail onboard positions include tour guides, bartenders, food servers, cooks, onboard managers, stewards, and club car attendants. Some ground-based positions include stockers, cleaners, maintenance assistants, stewards, and office assistants. While onboard positions may provide workers with the opportunity to experience more of Alaska, ground-based positions are equally favorable since they provide workers with a greater sense of permanence and stability in one particular location.

    Benefits of Rail Tour Jobs

    Despite the nature of the position a worker selects, the overall benefits to a railroad job deliver immensely. If you’re a “people person,” you’ll enjoy the perks of meeting new and exciting people daily. Travel enthusiasts can seek out a new destination to explore every day. For those that enjoy working in a central location, railroad employees enjoy the opportunity to meet local Alaskans and learn more about their daily lives.

    Holland America Group rail jobs represent more than the opportunity to work in Alaska. They provide an Alaskan adventure in and of themselves.
