What a Great Way to Spend the Summer!
Are you looking for a job where you can inspire others and make an impact? We are seeking exceptional individuals to help us provide a warm, caring, safe and stress-free environment 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 excellent work ethic, good moral character, and excellent communication skills. We expect a ready smile, willingness to work hard and have fun, integrity, 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 in mid-May 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 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 the guest, other employees, and our family. Because of our rural location, it is highly recommended to have your own vehicle for use on days off. Housing is bunkhouse style, not co-ed; we do not have housing for families or couples and do not allow pets or personal horses.
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 teamwork attitude and help wherever needed regardless of job title. We will provide on-the-job training when and where it is needed.
If you would like to apply for a specific position, please let us know your qualifications and experience for the position. We receive many requests for employment, especially to work with horses, so if interested in joining our team, please be specific. Video is appreciated if you are seeking wrangler positions.
