Our Company: We are a local government municipality and we provide services to the residents of Arcata ranging from recreational activities to small business incubators and everything in between. We employ roughly 180 full-time employees and on a seasonal basis we hire about the same number of part-time staff. Our positions range from highly specialized positions to entry level positions. The City became incorporated in February of 1858 and we have approximately 16,000 residents.
Our Work Culture: We are a small city and this aspect means this is a workplace where people sometimes wear many different hats to get a job done. Therefore the opportunity for learning is immense. We are always looking for new ways to streamline processes and change with the times, so having a diverse workforce encourages this and also helps us meet the needs of the growing community.
