If you’re hardworking, energetic, and want to make a positive commitment to the excellent service standards of our Ranch, in one of the country’s most spectacular recreation areas, we welcome your application. The Ranch fosters a respectful environment where all are comfortable working, recreating and enjoying the camaraderie of fellow employees and guests. We’re committed to an authentic team approach, where all employees are willing and expected to jump in to assist wherever and whenever needed, working cooperatively to maintain the standards of excellence for which the Ranch is known. Training is provided and while prior experience and demonstrated skill are considered in evaluating applicants, desire to learn, be a positive contributing member of the team, and your match to the attributes of our ideal employee are most important.

There are no “elite positions” at the Ranch; all positions are equally valued and all require daily chores whose completion is a necessary part of our service program. For example, cleaning, sweeping, and mopping of various Ranch areas are done by all departments. While some positions require more contact with the guests, all employees are expected to be congenial and respectful when encountering guests, always emanating the welcoming Idaho Rocky vibe. Employees will be cross trained to be able to fill more than one position. All employees must be willing to work split shifts as needed.

* Upbeat, enthusiastic, hardworking, responsible, mature, flexible.
* Has the stamina to sustain quality performance and a positive attitude for our 13 week guest season.
* Sincerely interested in meeting and interacting with people of all ages – guests, fellow employees and community members.
* Energized by people and providing hospitable service.
* Happily willing to be part of a Ranch team, doing whatever it takes to get the job done.
