The manager of guest services and amenities will work directly under the General Ranch Managers. This is a full time, permanent position at the Lazy K Bar Ranch, located along Big Timber Creek in Big Timber Canyon at the base of the highest peaks in the Crazy Mountains, approx 25 miles from Big Timber, MT.
While the responsibilities vary by season, there are three main parts to this position: guest services, facilities maintenance, and employee supervision. During the pre-season (spring) you will assist in the hiring of employees, oversee the setup of the ranch for the summer season and help arrange guests' trips. The summer is busy supervising and helping the seasonal staff ensure that the guests are cared for and the cabins and common areas are kept to the ranch’s high standards of cleanliness and orderliness. After the summer season this position will assist remaining summer staff in the facilities shut down and preparation for winter. The off season is when we prepare for the next year, do special projects, keep up with the cleaning and orderliness of some of the buildings, and occasionally host out of season guests.
SALARY AND BENEFITS –
Competitive monthly salary and generous benefits to be discussed with qualified candidates. Health insurance, 401k, and other employee benefits are included.

Whenever possible we like to participate in group activities and enjoy the surroundings as a team, horseback riding, rafting trips, camping, etc. While this position will likely have limited time off in the summer, the off season will allow plenty of time to spend multiple days a week enjoying this country. An active energetic person that craves the outdoors, with the attention to detail required, will be a great fit.
