EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES: **NOTE: We have all our staff for our 2013 season. Thanks to everyone who applied and to a group of return employees that make such a difference for us!
We hire around 10 employees each summer to help us provide our guests with an unforgettable experience filled with new adventures, camaraderie, and an opportunity to relax and recharge in spectacular country. Our crew is a vital component of the guest ranch and we’ve been fortunate over the years to have outstanding employees who have made life-long friends here and who we consider part of our family. Jobs include: wranglers, handyman, cooks and housekeeping.
A guest ranch job is a wonderful way to spend the summer, but it is also a lot of work! We look for employees who are self-starters with a strong work ethic, and who are safety-conscious, fun-loving, friendly and outgoing. Work days start early and employees, while hired for a specific job, are expected to pitch in where needed to get work done regardless of the job title.
All our employees should be First Aid and CPR certified. We offer some training on the ranch, but expect that all employees will acquire these certifications prior to employment. Our season will start around June 1 and end in mid-September, so consideration is given first to those employees able to stay all season. We hire for the guest season only, and do not hire for the cattle ranch during the winter. While we do hire some college students who have to leave in late August, please do not apply if you can only come for a month or six weeks. Conversely, please do not apply if you are looking for year-round employment.
All our employees are paid a monthly salary, get free room and board (living on the ranch is required as the nearest town is 40 miles away), and are paid a share of the gratuity pool. Employees are expected to be mature and responsible, able to live in close quarters with other employees, and to interact respectfully with one another. Employees are welcome to take part in all ranch activities, and to ride, fish, and hike when you have time off.
Our guests are the reason we have been in this business for so long. Sweet Grass Ranch is part of a working ranch in addition to being a guest ranch and the two ranches are great complements to one another and provide a host of opportunities for riding and adventure. We hope that each of our guests will become personal friends, and we strive to ensure they have an amazing vacation and learn something about our way of life. If you share these goals and think this sort of job would be a good fit, then please send a resume, cover letter explaining your job interest and background, and references to:
