Join our production team and help us bring a “vacation from the everyday” to our customers! Gifford’s has an upcoming opportunity– whether you’re looking for something to pass the time, earn some extra money for college, or get your “foot in the door”, apply today for a great summer job! Positions are open from March to August annually.

Being a part of our seasonal manufacturing team varies from day to day; from working on the production line to working in the freezer. This part-time seasonal position requires someone who can work up to 40-45 hours per week Monday through Friday, and Saturdays as needed.

A seasonal position is a great way to explore manufacturing as a career option, and learn about the business. Openings for seasonal help are annual, so this is a great way to get your foot in the door to return each year to experience more about Gifford’s! Many of our regular employees start in a seasonal or other temporary position. As opportunities become available, we initially look internally to fill those openings. If you express an interest in continuing your employment, you would be among the first considered, based on your performance, if a full time position were to become available.

You can download an application here and email it back to or print and mail it to us at 25 Hathaway Street, Skowhegan, ME 04976.


Our 5 Ice Cream Stands – Seasonal

Do you have energy to spare and a friendly smile for everyone you meet? Then we want to meet YOU!

We have openings at all 5 of our ice cream stand locations (Skowhegan, Farmington, Bangor, Waterville, and Auburn) for the upcoming “hey, let’s stop by Gifford’s for an ice cream cone” season. From all things ice cream, to clean picnic tables, to full napkin dispensers, the customer is our focus. We want every aspect of their visit to be as enjoyable as a mouth full of our ice cream. We need your best customer service skills from 10am-10pm 7 days a week. No, of course you won’t have to work 7 days a week, but you must be available for a variable schedule that includes weekends and holidays.

We promote from within and are always happy to offer advancement opportunities to deserving team members. In fact, the “Ice Cream Team” – it rhymes, it’s catchy, and when you work for Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream, it’s your job description!

You can apply here or visit the stand to pick one up.
