Are there jobs available during other times of the year?
We hire almost all of our staff in the fall season. Part time positions available for holiday, spring, and fall seasons are filled from fall staff from the previous seasons who demonstrate aptitude and are a good fit with the Tuttle’s culture. Positions for other seasons are limited and almost entirely part time. If you have a desire to work at Tuttles in other seasons, we suggest you join us for a fall season to see if Tuttle’s might be a good fit for you. As full time positions become available these are posted and filled on a position specific basis.
What if I am not available to attend the interview days?
If you are not able to come during the above listed times, you may come by the farm store before that time to leave your application. It is important to bring your application the week before the interview days. Do not wait until after those dates. Do NOT send applications or resumes by email or fax. Priority will be given to applicants who apply during the above dates. Additional applications will be considered if openings are still available after that time.
I have applied for a fall position, when will I hear back?
Because of the large number of applicants we typically receive, Tuttles only contacts applicants who will be called back for a second interview for positions. You should expect to hear something by Labor Day at the latest if you are being considered. However, sometimes we continue to hire into September if we find the season is a busy one. We are sorry, we typically receive more qualified applicants then we can hire.
I don’t know a lot about apples, does Tuttles provide training?
Yes, we provide several trainings to our seasonal staff including “Apple School” where you will become an expert in all things apple. Tour guides will receive several days of extensive training to prepare them for leading groups through the orchard. Paid training is required to work at Tuttles.
I have applied for a position in the past, should I apply again?
We often have more qualified applicants then we can hire so if you have applied in the past and were not called for a position and would still like to work at Tuttles, please apply again. Keep in mind that Saturday availability is important for many positions.
I have worked at Tuttles in the past, should I reapply?
If you have worked at Tuttles in a past season and would like to return to work at Tuttles, please complete the availability page of the application and return it to Helen or Ruth Ann before or during the interview days. It is important to contact us before the interview days. Please note: Tuttles reevaluates all positions each year. Employment in the past does not guarantee employment in future seasons. However, many Tuttles employees return year after year to the fall season.
How long will these positions last?
Typically fall positions run from early September to the later part of October.
