Permanent Employment Opportunities? Don't hesitate to ask! You never know what our current manpower needs might be. Rates of pay, bonus plans, and housing can vary from the seasonal program described below.
Seasonal Positions Available:
Retail Store (Ranch Shop - Jackson)
During the busy summer season the Ranch Shop is open daily from 9:00 AM until 9:00 PM. Winter store hours are much shorter. Employees will work approximately 40 hours per week with overtime being a possibility. Scheduling depends upon operating conditions, personnel needs, and the overall business climate. Don't worry, days off are also a must!
Entry level seasonal wages range from $8.00 to $8.50/hr and depending on the situation, a season end bonus between $1.50 - $2.00/hr can be offered. The bonus is paid only if the terms of your employment contract are met. Merit raises are possible and store discounts are available.
Motel (The Ranch Inn - Jackson and The Flying Saddle Resort - Alpine, Wyoming)
Desk Clerks, Room & Laundry Attendants, Restaurant/Bar Staff, Kitchen Help, and Light Maintenance
Like the retail store, the Ranch Inn and the Flying Saddle Resort are extremely busy during the summer vacation and winter sports seasons. They're open 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Employee benefits are basically the same as those provided to our retail employees. Entry level seasonal wages range from $8.00 to $8.50/hr and depending on the situation, a season end bonus between $1.50 - $2.00/hr can be offered. The bonus is paid only if the terms of your employment contract are met.
Simply put, we are looking for honest, friendly, hardworking individuals who like to have fun and enjoy themselves. A positive attitude and the ability to work with people is a must - period! We ask that you work hard and be responsible during your stay, but we also want you to play hard and enjoy this beautiful area. If you are not a "people person" with an outgoing personality, this may not be the place for you.
We ask that our employees maintain a conservative, conventional, business-like appearance while on the job. Appearance (dress and grooming) is critical in a tourist environment.
Your work schedule will change throughout the season, especially during the early and late summer months when employees are arriving and departing. If you live in company housing, you will be expected to work the posted schedule. We will not work around a second employer's schedule ~ no exceptions! If you have a second job and there is a scheduling conflict, you must work the conflict out with your second employer. Realize that you may be asked to work any shift, any hours, any day - and split shifts are possible.
Please understand that we have a very short summer season in Jackson Hole. Therefore, limited accommodations can be made for employees who cannot work the schedule we require and/or request special periods of time off (other than normal days off) during the summer.
We offer housing to most seasonal employees. For the retail store, we have two and three bedroom, furnished apartments located approximately nine blocks from the store. Ranch Inn employees have housing located on the property or at our two and three bedroom apartment location. Flying Saddle Resort employees live in two bedroom apartments located on the property. All apartments are somewhat dormitory-style in that two individuals share a bedroom along with shared bathrooms, kitchens, living areas, etc. Up to four employees are housed in our two bedroom apartments while five individuals can be assigned to the three bedroom units. All apartments are equipped with necessary furnishings. Employees must bring personal items such as linens, bedding, cooking utensils, televisions, stereos, etc. Telephone and TV/Cable hookups are available should you so choose.
The cost for our housing ranges from $35.00 - $40.00 per week during the summer ($50.00 per week winter) and covers costs for rent and utilities. Payment is handled through payroll deduction. An individual must work full time (40 hrs. per week) for Garaman, Inc. to be eligible to live in our housing. There is also a $100.00 damage/cleaning deposit required ($25.00 of this amount is non-refundable).
Be aware that housing for male employees and couples can sometimes become limited.
Jackson is very busy in the summer, and parking is limited. Bicycles have proven to be an excellent means for both transportation and recreation. Bike racks are provided at all locations.
