Positions for waitstaff and cook near beautiful Yellowstone National Park for 2018 summer season!

The North Fork Club is a welcoming private community that began in 1902. It is made up of families who have known each other all their lives as did their parents and grandparents before them.

Situated on the banks of the Henry's Fork of the Snake River on 160 acres of forested land in Island Park, Idaho. Yellowstone NP is 22 miles to the northeast.

About North Fork Club

We are a community of folks who will include you in floats on the river or help you hone your casting skills. As employees, you are part of the community for the time you are here as much or as little as you want to be.

The Employee Experience

There are advantages and disadvantages to working in a small operation such as ours. You don't get lost in the shuffle. Our members want to get to know you - in a respectful way because this is their summer home and you are sharing space.

We don't have dorms with shared bathrooms. You have a private room and bath for a small fee.

We rely on our staff to "show up" ready and willing to do what needs to get done. The executive chef encourages a "team approach" which means you play an important role in the successful completion of meals for our membership. The roles in the kitchen are fluid which means you might be out front serving one day and washing dishes the next day. The schedule is a split shift with breakfast from 7:00 - 10:00 and dinner from 5:00 - 9:00.

We make every attempt to allow for time off to explore this amazing area. Yellowstone is a short drive away and the Tetons are less than two hours away. The hiking, biking, fishing opportunities are endless. You can slip a kayak into the river outside your door for a quick paddle in the morning before breakfast or a longer paddle in the middle of the day. 

Room and Board

We offer private rooms with private bathrooms. Our meals consist of the meals we prepare for our members with some variation. We can usually accommodate diets that are exclusive of gluten, dairy, meat, but sometimes we ask that employees purchase their own ingredients if their diets are extremely restrictive.

The charge for room and board is $25/week.

Getting Here and Getting Around

It is beneficial for you to have a car so you can enjoy your time off exploring the area.

Our Jobs

Our season runs approximately from June 5 to Sept. 9. We hire a small crew - only 5 people - we look for folks who have food service experience that involves front of the house and back of the house experience. The executive chef does the bulk of the administrative work and 50% of the hands-on meal preparation.

We hire at least one prep/breakfast cook and 4 waitstaff.

The hours worked each week will vary but they average between 30-35 with a few weeks being closer to 40.

The wage is $12/hour for waitstaff and $15/hour for an experienced cook. We don't collect tips on the job but there is a bonus paid out after the annual meeting of the club board in November.
