Elkins Resort on Priest Lake
Summer Jobs on Priest Lake in Idaho
Elkins Resort is a family destination resort located on the sandy shores of Priest Lake. We offer family vacations, conferences, retreats and weddings. The resort has a restaurant, lounge, gift shop, store, marina and 32 log cabins on 30 acres of forested land.
We offer a positive upbeat environment located in a pristine wilderness lakefront setting. We are looking for outgoing energetic people to interact with our customers to provide an outstanding vacation.
Many of our summer staff are college students and are eager to participate in group activities. We invite you to become a part of our team here at Elkins Resort on Priest Lake.
Our ideal candidate is someone who is willing to work hard, but also play hard. We are located in one of the most beautiful spots in the world and want all of our employees to enjoy what nature has surrounded us with.
Our summer season is extremely busy though, and we need employees who are willing to work in whatever department is necessary to help out and keep things running smooth. We prefer candidates who are hardworking, outgoing, easy to get along with (and live with), who are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done, and who will appreciate the outdoors so they can better serve the guests who are coming to the area for that reason. Most of our guests are returning, and we have built a long-standing relationship with them - so we want people that can fit not only our criteria of a good employee, but also theirs as well.
Room and Board
Employee housing is part cabins, part 8×12 bunk houses and for the adventurous we have a group camp site. We provide bedding in employee housing but not for the camp sites.
Most seasonal employees work five days a week, with two days off during their work weeks. Seasonal bonuses are available for those who fulfill their contracts. Employees receive 30% off meals and in the gift shop.
