Maintenance/Carpentry Position/Hunt Guide: (1 position open)

We are looking for a skilled maintenance/carpentry worker preferably with elk hunting guide experience to join our team for the 2020 guest season, which begins in April  and ends in mid to late November. 

This position's main responsibility will be providing maintenance services on the ranch which includes all aspects of residential repairs and construction, operating hand and power tools, operating large equipment such as dump truck, tractors, and skid steer, assisting ranch mechanic as needed, road and trail maintenance projects, fixing fence, assisting with hay operation, and any other project or task that is assigned by ranch manager.  From September to the end of the season in November, we would like to have the individual in this position also guide both archery and rifle elk hunts.  This requires someone in excellent physical condition that hasn't only elk hunted extensively themselves, but has guided others on elk hunts and has the references to attest to ethical and correct hunting practices. It is preferable that the previous guiding experience was done in Colorado or the surrounding areas. 

Our hours are long and days off vary throughout our season. This is not a "punch in at 8 and out at 5" type job.   We are a guest ranch so there are times that emergency maintenance or repairs must be taken care of at all hours of the day and sometimes even at night. We need someone willing to go the extra mile to ensure our guests' experiences are top notch at all times.  We need a team player that doesn't cause drama and stays positive regardless of the situation at hand.  Sometimes situations such as a backed up septic system may arise or a guest needing heavy luggage carried to their room.  Hospitality is extremely important and our mantra "guests first, coworkers second and ourselves last" must be upheld.  

Compensation includes a salary that varies depending on experience and skills (typically around $2000/mo - $2300/mo), share of the tip pool (historically averages around $700/mo), housing (no pets, please don't ask), meals, season end bonus, access to ranch amenities on days off and complimentary nights for personal guests to come stay as guests of the Bar NI Ranch. 

Applicants must pass a thorough and complete background check before being hired. We take our guests' and staffs' safety very seriously and will not hire anyone with a criminal or questionable background so please don't waste our time or yours by applying if this will be a problem for you.

If you are qualified and interested, please apply by sending a detailed resume to that clearly shows the skills and experience that are necessary for this position, along with several strong references.
