Would you like to have a pretty weird job? Can you live a different kind of lifestyle for most of the year? Does adventure and new experience turn you on? Are you a leader that can independently manage a small unit of an enterprise? This might be it.
We travel the west coast states performing racing pig and kids pedal tractor pull shows. Your job will be to take loving care of the little piggies, perform the shows, drive the motorhome, pull the pigs’ trailer, set up the show equipment, sell merchandise after the show, and have fun! Google “All-Alaskan Racing Pigs” and you will see and read all about us. This could be you.
- You will share a motorhome with another team member. A usual team is two announcers.
- You will have to drive the motorhome and pull a trailer, about 50-feet of vehicle total.
- You will have to lift and carry up to 40 lbs.
- You will have to work outdoors, in heat or after dark, setting up and staying busy for 6-8 hours for each set up.
- You will have to stand in front of up to 2000 people and be the front person for the pigs — the golden voice of the racing pigs.
- You will perform from 3 to 6 shows each day, 20 minutes per show.
- You will sell merchandise after each show, handle money, run credit card transactions, and keep records of daily sales and expenses.
- Once you start working you will be “on the road” almost continuously until October or so.
- Jobs will be filled starting in February and continuing into August.
- This is a long hiring process. o Step 1: Apply through Indeed. o Step 2: If you pass the screening we will have a short introductory phone conversation. o Step 3: Our team will meet you via video chat to ask and answer questions from both parties. o Step 3: You will have an interview and perform a 5-minute script live via FaceTime, Google Meet, Zoom, etc. o Step 4: Another interview that may lead to a job offer.
Are you or can you become a performer? This is the real thing and it is all about your attitude. If you see yourself doing this and are willing to work at it, you can do it! You will have live audiences of up to 2,000 people. We will give you a script, coach you in delivering it, and then you have to make them laugh. Can you do that?
Can you do physical work, outdoors, for 6-8 hours? It’s only once a week or once a month, but it has to be done. Can you do that?
All-Alaskan Racing Pigs travels the western states performing at fairs, festivals, and other public and private events. Event producers and fans love this show. Most of our clients have had us return for at least a decade, many for more than two decades, a bunch for over 30 years. The show is that good. Can you keep the run going?
Team members run the show while it is on the road. All animal-care and business systems, scripts, checklists, and instructions are ready to go. You need only be willing to work hard, have a positive and fun attitude, and desire to make fans smile and cheer every week. You will do physical work during set up and tear down, and sometimes it will be hot. You will also perform to hundreds or thousands of cheering fans at each show. Some days are long, some are short. You must be flexible, adaptive, hard-working, and smart. This is show-business and the rewards equal the level of performance. Spoiler Alert: You will never have a more fun job the rest of your life!
You will have to learn a 20-minute script word-for-word. At first that is your script, but after you have that down we will work with you to add new material and make the show fit your style and personality.
Our animal athletes deserve and get special care. Their living quarters are First-Class, and the care you give them must be too. We will get you up to speed on all aspects. Livestock experience not required but is helpful. Love of animals and respect for the responsibility of owning an animal are required. There is no compromising on animal care.
This job requires constant travel. You can live anywhere and do this, because during the season you won’t be home much, if at all. If you wish, you can stop paying rent, and put even more money in the bank. Your home becomes the events you work at, the people who make the event, and the people you meet at the shows. You will see many of the same people over the course of the season — entertainers, vendors, security people, trades people, coordinators, all working the same events and running across each other many times during the year. Generally the location changes every two weeks, but sometimes weekly, sometimes monthly. You will live in (and drive) a comfortable motor home, visit beautiful communities on the west coast and mountain west, and make people happy every day.
There is no profile for who can be successful at this job. If you have performing and management skills you have an advantage, but people of all colors, genders, and other identities have excelled at this. Teenagers, retired people, all ages in between have been stars. Skills matter much less than a desire to do it well. If you are coachable and willing to work at it, we can make you good at this. At least half of our announcers never performed in front of a live crowd before doing this gig. We know how to help you succeed.
Announcers earn a salary, bonus, and commission. First-year employees will earn at least $4,300 per month and can make up to $6,100 per month if they work a full season. We want people who are worth the top end. The work can be seasonal or year round. We especially look for employees who want to work the off-season in recruiting, marketing, video production, social media and web development, equipment maintenance and repair, show development, and “whatever needs to be done.” Year-round employees enjoy extra-generous paid vacation breaks.

Please only apply if you are very serious about doing this. This work is very rewarding and pays well. It is equally demanding, so be sure you want to do this.
