The Job
The Hideout has a position available washing dishes at our guest ranch. No experience is necessary - our team is excited to train an enthusiastic person but a strong work ethic is required. We give very personalized service to our guests and create a positive environment in which to work and live. Responsibilities include washing dishes for all meals.

Applicants must be at least 19 years of age and willing to live on the ranch. Very nice housing (not bunkhouse living) is provided as part of our seasonal employment package.  You may share a house with mixed roommates, but you will have your own bedroom with a shared bathroom. No pets are allowed.

Hours and Payment
Employees receive a monthly paycheck with the salary being established when a job offer is made based on your experience and background. A generous end-of-season bonus is paid upon successful completion of the term of employment which will be working through the first full week of November.

Dates of Employment
This job has the potential to begin as early as June 2, 2022, and can run through the second week of November 2022. For the correct applicant, this position has the potential to be a multi-season position.

The core of our culture is what we call The 3 C’s of Character, Conduct, and Competence. We can train someone for Competence, but the other two C’s (Character and Conduct) are inherent and tell a lot about a person based on how they behave and present themselves in all situations. Although we work hard, we also have a lot of fun. Our goal is to be the best. To help us achieve that goal, we try to pick the best staff possible and take care of them to the best of our abilities. Being part of our team will enrich your life experiences and create memories for both you and the guests we serve.

The goal of our staff and management is to make sure our guests have a fantastic time with positive lasting memories. We look for people who are willing to work hard; who operate equally well when working alone or as part of a team; who are honest, friendly, and enthusiastic and have a good sense of humor; who enjoy interacting with guests, and who get a great sense of satisfaction from providing excellent service to our guests. No drug use at all is allowed, and employees are subject to a random drug test on request by employers. No alcohol is to be consumed before or during workdays.

How to Apply

The Hideout has many returning staff each year because of the positive and professional culture of our ranch.
