$3,000.00 - $4,000.00 / month + tips
Some experience required
Start Date:
Starts in 3 months. (Jun 05, 2024)

Join our crew spending a summer in the beautiful Crazy Mountains of southcentral Montana!  We own and operate a multi-generational guest ranch, where fun-loving guests and crew make for amazing experiences and lifelong friendships.  Our season runs from June 9 to September 21, 2024.

We are looking for independent, outgoing and creative chefs or home cooks.   Meals are family-style and we are happy to provide sample menus to applicants.  The level of experience is not as important as enthusiasm and initiative-we have lots of great recipes if you are just getting started on your culinary career and we are happy to incorporate some ideas and recipes from the more experienced chefs.  We have a small crew and expect everyone to be friendly, cooperative self-starters.  Absolutely no drama, please!  Chefs are responsible for preparing meals for about 25 guests and 15 crew/family per day, keeping a clean and sanitary kitchen and inventory.  The cooking job can require lifting up to 50 lbs. and being on your feet for much of your shift, so please be sure that you are able to handle the physical requirements when applying.

This is an opportunity to live and play in an incredible mountain setting, 40 miles from the nearest town but with good Wi-Fi (and poor cell coverage).   We encourage our crew to take advantage of the wealth of recreational opportunities while here as well as bonding experiences for the crew with some off ranch activities, as well.

If interested, please inquire for a more comprehensive job description.  Salary is dependent on experience. This job provides room, board, salary, tips and a possible end of the season performance bonus. Shared crew accommodations.  This job opportunity is only available to US citizens, at this time.
