Charlie has an interesting work history at Stanford Sierra. He started in the kitchen in 2005 and worked year-round through the spring of 2008. Charlie then returned to the East Coast and worked in his family’s insurance business. Charlie missed the weather, snow and hiking in the Lake Tahoe area, so he returned to the Stanford Sierra kitchen in the spring of 2011. It was a fortuitous move as Charlie met Alissa, his bride-to-be. The next year Charlie was hired to be the conference staff director. During his tenure, Charlie has done an excellent job of hiring friendly, hardworking staff for each conference season.

Starting with the application, Charlie is looking for applicants who present themselves well including a complete, accurate and grammatically correct application. If the application meets Charlie’s scrutiny, he invites the applicant to a Skype interview. Again, Charlie is looking for applicants who present themselves well including appropriate dress for a job interview, clear and concise answers to interview questions and a friendly, outgoing demeanor.

Conference season staff work hard, but enjoy many unique benefits during their two-month stint at Fallen Leaf Lake. Staff members share lakefront cabins on Fallen Leaf Lake, enjoy delicious meals prepared by Chef Dave and his staff and enjoy excellent recreation including paddle boarding and kayaking Fallen Leaf Lake, hiking in Desolation Wilderness plus friendly staff competitions including volleyball and soccer.

Our spring and fall conference seasons fits well with other resort season jobs that tend to run summer and winter. If you are hardworking and love the outdoors, submit your application!
