Glidden Point Oyster Farms has been growing oysters on the Damariscotta River since 1987. The company is quickly growing in sustainable shellfish farming. We are looking for qualified, self-motivated individuals that want to work and learn in the aquaculture industry.

Whether you’re just looking to spend the summer working on the river or seeking a fulfilling career in aquaculture, Glidden Point has opportunities available for individuals who are enthusiastic about oysters and aquaculture, and not afraid of hard work.

NOW HIRING FOR: RETAIL CREW MEMBER 

JOB DESCRIPTION: 

Glidden Point is hiring for seasonal part-time positions (20-32 hours) for their retail store, which will begin in May 2021 and run till October 2021.

We are looking for self-motivated individuals who are excited to work in a collaborative environment. The farm store is a shuck-it-yourself venue where people with a wide range of knowledge can enjoy the variety and flavors of the Damariscotta River and beyond. Some folks have never tried an oyster, while others may be fellow farmers. Whoever we interact with, we strive to make them feel as comfortable as they would shucking in their own backyard. 

To create this environment, we are looking for personable individuals that will build lasting impressions on the people that visit. A person who is patient with attention to detail, since the shops’ display and cleanliness will be a big part of the job. In addition, the applicant will need to possess the ability to manage a standard POS system, re-stock inventory, conduct tours of the property, and regularly lift 25 lb bags of oysters. Our ideal candidate has some experience working in the retail or restaurant realm and loves (or blossoming love) for our product. 

That being said, we don’t expect to hire an oyster expert right off the bat. Instead, we encourage people to expand their knowledge while working here. The crew on the farm is always open to questions and the customers will continually be testing your knowledge as an oyster lover.
