    Awesome Summer Job!!

    Hang Glide Instructor (Former Employee) Nags Head, NC

    ProsGreat group of people to work with
    Learn to fly for free
    Everybody is on vacation
    You are at the beach
    Outside

    ConsThe hang gliding school is a great place to work for. Bruce and Andy are some of the best bosses I've ever had. The job is really tough though... You are outside in the hot sun carrying gliders up the hill. I believe the pros outweigh the hard work and you will work will some of the coolest people ever

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Assistant Manger

    Assistant Manager/Buyer (Current Employee) Kill Devil Hills, NC

    ProsLiving and working on the Outer Banks allows for lots of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. KHK carries some amazing hard good brands and the employee discount is very good. If you have any interest learning to Hang Glide then this is probably the best employer on the planet.Good location

    ConsLower than average wage. Mandatory six day work weeks during summer season. Living and working in a seasonal tourist industry means that you are often over worked in the summer and board in the winter.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKHK needs more clearly designed career paths for employees who wish to continue on with the company. More competitive wages wages should be offered to retain good employees. Management positions are often overworked.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    An amazing experience worth a summer of your time

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Nags Head, NC

    ProsThe people you work with are great in every regard. It is a fun environment in a beach setting. Bosses are really caring and understanding, but expect much from you.

    ConsThis is a job not for someone looking to make a life-long living, but it is a job for people looking to have an amazing experience with amazing people in an amazing environment. It is for those who enjoy the adventure recreation field and who have a lot of energy.
