How to Apply

The hiring process involves filling out an online application, a short phone interview, and participation in a 5-day interview trip during the month of March. The interview trip typically takes place through Arizona’s Salt River Wilderness or Utah's Labyrinth Canyon on the Green River. The Salt River is one of the best whitewater rivers in the country.  See photos of the Salt River.  Our interview trip is offered at $400 for qualified candidates - a $600 savings over our regular commercial trip cost. 
Applications will be accepted until March 1st. However, there are limited positions available on our interview trips so we encourage you to apply as early as possible.
