The Employee Experience

You will be living in one of the most unique locations in the world!

Historic Pahaska Tepee, Buffalo Bill's 1904 "Gem of the Rockies", was built in the heart of our nation's first National Forest (Shoshone), next to our nation's first National Park (Yellowstone), and on both sides are America's two largest wilderness areas in the lower 48 states (North Absaroka and Washakie)! Our frequent visitors are buffalo, moose, bears, foxes and occasionally, wolves.

Pahaska Tepee is a family-owned business with a peak season staff of about 50 employees.  You'll know everybody's name and we'll know yours.  You will not be just a number on the corporate payroll.  We all work together, live together, play together and form friendships that can last forever. To quote a past employee, "Where else can you have breakfast, lunch, and dinner with 40 friends every day?"

Ideal Candidate

We expect our employees to provide guests with western hospitality and always have a positive “can-do” attitude.  Leave the negative attitudes at home and come enjoy Wyoming's great outdoors!  Our summer season runs from May 7th through early October.  We look forward to hearing you!

Room and Board

Our housing is dormitory style and non-smoking.  Most likely you will have one or two same-sex roommates and a shared bathroom.  Sorry, we do not have housing for families or pets. In our employee dining room, we provide three well-balanced meals per day for a small fee.

Employee Perks

We work hard to give you 2 days off in a row so you can take advantage of this great country!  

We have an employee TV and rec room, limited satellite internet access but no cell phone service.

Employees are encouraged to take a 1 or 2-hour trail ride at no charge.  Additional rides are 50% off. Employees are also given a 20% discount in our gift shop.  Visiting family will receive generous discounts on accommodations.

Getting Here and Getting Around
