Our Ideal Candidate
Our ideal candidates are adventurous, fun loving people who love interacting with the public and working in the great outdoors. Must be able to work in a high energy, drug free, positive attitude environment.
Room and Board
Housing is provided for guides. Staff dinner parties are held weekly.
Tips are always a great perk to the job. We only work four days a week which gives plenty of time to relax and play.
Getting Here and Getting Around
Most of our employees arrive in their own vehicles. However, if you are planning on flying in from abroad or another state, Tyson McGhee Airport in Knoxville, TN will be the closest airport.
If you plan on arriving by bus, we recommend Megabus also in Knoxville, TN.
We will pick you up from the airport or bus station at no charge.
Once you arrive here getting around is a breeze. Most of our employees have their own vehicles and carpooling seems to be the most popular way. The friendships you create here will most likely result in plenty of options to get around.
Want to get away for the weekend? Several major cities in the area are within a one to four hour drive. They include Gatlinburg TN, Asheville NC, Knoxville TN, Pigeon Forge TN, Nashville, TN and Atlanta GA.
If cities aren't your thing, the Smoky Mountain National Park, Pisgah National Forest, and the Blue Ridge Parkway are in our backyard. Weekend retreats to other rivers are great team building we all enjoy. Come join the largest growing outfitter on the Big Pigeon River!
