What a Great Way to Spend the Summer!
Each year we look for exceptional individuals to help us provide a warm, caring, safe and stress free envirnoment for the guests that we serve. Our employees are important to us and become part of the family. We strive for excellence and the best service in the industry so we look for employees with the same qualities. If you are a self-proclaimed slacker, stop reading now. However, if you are a self-motivated, high energy, problem-solving person with a passion for the outdoors and people, we would like to hear from you!
We average around 20 guests per week at the Ranch and 8-10 guests on the pack-trips. Our size allows us to give each guest special attention. Often our guests say that this was the best vacation they have ever had, and it is our goal that this is true for every guest. To ensure that goal, we seek employees who are mature, outgoing individuals with an excellent work ethic, good moral character and excellent communication skills. We expect a ready smile, willingness to work hard and have fun, and a love of the outdoors and people. This requires a self-starting individual with physical stamina to put in long hours and hard work. All employees need to be organized, willing to take initiative, and have a “can do” attitude.
Working at a guest ranch can be hard work, but it’s also a lot of fun. You’ll meet new people from all over the world and see beautiful, pristine country. During your time off, you can ride, fish, hike and explore the surrounding area. A ranch job is not for everyone, but it is a job that will have many lasting friendships and memories.
We hire seasonally - with arrival from late May to early June and departure in late August through September. If you must leave before the 3rd week of August, please do not apply! Our ranch season runs through September/early October so there are some positions that we will only hire employees that can stay through the entire season.
As with most dude ranches, we compensate you in several ways. You will receive full room and board and monetary compensation. Meals and housing are provided at no cost. Working and living together on a 24 hour basis is not always easy and requires that certain policies be observed out of respect for other employees and our family. Because of our rural location, it is highly recommended to have your own vehicle for use on days' off.
The atmosphere at the Ranch is western. Our guests expect to see cowboys and cowgirls so your appearance needs to reflect this. Good social skills, table manners and a neat and clean appearance are necessary.
We require our staff has a current CPR card (Basic Life Saving for Adults and Children) before beginning employment. We provide First Aid classes at the beginning of the season specific to our industry.
Job placement is determined by the abilities and past job experience of each applicant. All of our employees must have a team work attitude and help wherever needed regardless of job title. We will provide on the job training when and where it is needed.
We are now taking resumes for the 2018 season, but will give our repeat employees first chance. If you would like to apply for a specific position for 2018, please let us know of your qualifications and experience for the position, we welcome your resume at email@example.com. If we have the position available, we will email you the job description and application. We receive many requests for employment, especially to work with horses, so if interested in joining our team, please be specific.
