The Employee Experience

Our employees come not only from Montana, but from all across the United States, Europe, and Asia.  Meeting new people, creating custom guest experiences, trying new activities, and taking advantage of all The Ranch and the local community has to offer is part of a typical employee experience.

The Ranch is located in a very remote area, and those seeking the hustle and bustle of city life should not look here.  Successful employees enjoy the rural beauty of the area and the outdoor activities it provides.


Ideal Candidate

Candidates should have a strong luxury hospitality mindset.   Our most successful employees are those who are self-motivated, confident, good at multi-tasking and creating special connections, and who, above all, show impeccable work ethic.  A love of the outdoors and an adventuresome spirit are crucial. The desire to work as a team and go above and beyond the call of duty when necessary is what makes our Ranch so special.

Room and Board

Housing is available for $8/day.  Breakfast and lunch are provided at no charge.  Breakfast is continental style (bagels, cereal, yogurt, etc).  Lunch is prepared daily.  While vegetarian and gluten-free choices are sometimes provided, we are unable to cater to strict dietary concerns.  Employees are responsible for their own dinners, and kitchens are available for use, either in the unit or in a common area.   Company housing is shared and houses anywhere from 3-6 people depending on the structure.  Private or co-ed housing is not available. Pets are not allowed.

Those who wish to live off-site may find rentals in Philipsburg, MT.  

Employee Perks

Employees have access to TV, movies, games, and WiFi in a common recreation area. Employees are encouraged to take advantage of activities offered at The Ranch, which includes fly fishing, horseback riding, snowshoeing, archery, ropes course and more.  Hiking and biking abound in the local area.   Bicycles are provided for all employees in the summer months to get you around The Ranch.  Employees may also participate in our Rodeo held each Tuesday during the summer.

Employees who successfully complete the season will be eligible for a bonus.

Full-time, year-round employees enjoy a benefits package that includes insurance, PTO, 401(k) and holidays.


Getting Here and Getting Around

All employees are encouraged to bring a vehicle, as it will allow you to explore the surrounding areas.

For Fun

The Ranch at Rock Creek staff enjoys Montana at its finest. There is exceptional access to hiking, camping and backpacking in the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness. There are plenty of chances to try new hobbies, such as horseback riding, archery, ice skating or sapphire mining. Southwest Montana is an excellent place for budding photographers, who will see some of the most diverse wildlife in the United States.

In addition, staff members will find themselves steps away from Rock Creek, one of the world’s only Blue Ribbon trout streams. More fishing access is enjoyed on Flint Creek and Georgetown Lake. If you love to fly fish, there is almost no better place in the world to spend a season. Just 25 minutes away, Discovery Ski Area is an alpine skiing destination that becomes a mountain biking mecca in the summer.
