We encourage you to ask questions and learn as much about this business as you desire, as well as our employees, to have open and warm dialogue with our guests. Your knowledge of the area: Where to eat, hike, explore, and “what is going on” becomes invaluable to the guest experience.
Please make note of, and address, any maintenance issues immediately to help us stay on top of the property and avoid an “unhappy” guest experience. If you don’t know the answer, don’t be afraid to ask!
Seasonal Positions are needed to be filled from mid-May through mid-October.
A typical day-time schedule is from 9 AM till 2 or 3 PM depending on the “busy-ness” of the day. 6 days a week, and your day off may vary from week to week depending on workload. (So, 30-36/hrs. weeks can be expected) This leaves your afternoons and evenings available for exploring and hiking in the park, picking up another part-time job in town, or just relaxing. On a particularly busy day, you may be asked to come in early but will be notified a day or two before. Flexibility and communication are key. It also may be necessary for you to switch a day off from time to time and is perfectly acceptable if worked out with manager.
All staff will receive a 1⁄2 hour lunch break each day, and are expected to bring your own lunch as there won’t be time to run and get one. Occasionally we will have “staff lunches” in which case lunch is provided. All staff gather and eat together in common areas at each of the lodges.
**Additional, Non-paid, day’s off may be scheduled through the office on a need and mutually agreed upon basis
