Our benefits are unbeatable

Full-time and part-time employees of Coquille Tribal government are eligible for an extraordinary benefits package. The following benefits apply to employees in tribal administration, the Ko-Kwel Wellness Centers, the Coquille Gaming Commission, our learning center and Nasomah Health Group.

(See the links below for benefits at other Coquille Tribal enterprises and entities.)

Your family's health is important to us. We offer several options to help keep you well. Your employee contribution for health, dental and vision insurance can be as little as $69 per month (individual) or  $295 (family).

We strive to take care of our employees in unexpected times. Employees working at least 20 hours per week are eligible for both short-term and long-term disability coverage. 

We provide term life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance to employees who work 20 hours or more per week. You can buy additional insurance if you want. 

We value work-life balance for our staff. You'll be eligible for four weeks-plus of paid time off in your first year on the job. That goes up after two years and again after five years, topping out at an enviable six weeks a year.

We observe all the usual holidays plus three more. In 2023, our employees will enjoy 14 days of paid holiday time.

Long-term financial planning is important, and our employee savings plan is a great vehicle. Eligible employees can join after just 90 days on the job, and we offer a generous match.

Your family is just as important to us as you are. The tribe's own Head Start and summer Little Feathers program provide excellence in early learning for children of tribal members and employees alike. (Limited to space available.)

We want to support you to stay active and healthy. So we reimburse employees as much as $75 per month ($150 for family memberships) for health clubs and fitness activities. 

During workdays, you can enjoy half-priced meals at The Mill Casino & RV Park. 

We're worth relocating for!

Why the Coquille Tribe?

The tribe and its businesses value health, education and community. We welcome each employee as part of our tribal family. Our values carry over in the form of work-life balance, a generous benefits package and a caring workplace.

Why Coos Bay?

Often called the "gateway to Oregon's Adventure Coast," the Coos Bay area offers historic charm, natural beauty and outdoor adventure. The largest town on the Oregon Coast has access to beaches, endless hiking, world-class golf, hunting, fishing and more.

Why Eugene?

Eugene is at the south end of Oregon's Willamette Valley where two large rivers and many smaller ones converge. It's a place of converging ideas, too. A university town, Eugene is full of artists, innovators and visionaries.
