Dear Prospective Employee:

We think it is wonderful you're interested in a summer position at Pahaska. We expect you will find your summers at Pahaska are filled with many new friendships and frequent opportunities for wilderness outdoor experiences.

Pahaska is located deep in the Shoshone National Forest just 2 miles outside of Yellowstone National Park's East Entrance and has been owned and operated by the Coe family since 1946. Our highway from Cody is often called the most scenic 50 miles in America. When Buffalo Bill decided on the location for his tourist lodge called Pahaska Tepee, he picked the most beautiful spot in the valley, dense forest with tall mountain peaks and clear mountain streams nearby.

We are currently hiring for our summer season. If you are interested in summer employment, we require our application to be completed including at least three recent job references with phone numbers and the names of supervisors, and you must be at least 18 years of age to be eligible. Employees are expected to exhibit proper hygiene and to have a clean and neat appearance while on shift or in the public's eye on property. While we encourage your individuality, facial jewelry (nose, lip, or eyebrow piercings), extreme hair colors and visible tattoos are frowned upon and will not be accepted. You MUST be able to provide a valid picture ID or Passport, and a social security card before the start of your first shift. We require a $50.00 room deposit (Deducted from your first check). Pahaska is an equal opportunity employer.

Living in our employee housing, Pahaska makes an ideal location for your summer in Yellowstone country. Our rooms are dormitory style with fresh linens available weekly. Room and board is $13.00 a day and will be subtracted from each paycheck. Sorry, but we do not allow children or pets into our employee housing areas. Also Firearms, Controlled Substances & paraphernalia are strictly forbidden in our employee housing.

You might be surprised at our wage structure; we feel we are one of the more progressive employers in the region. Hourly employees will be paid every other Friday, based on a 40 hour time-clock work week; overtime is paid at time and a half. We provide three meals a day; your only meal chore is rinsing and stacking your dishes and keeping your space at the table clean.

If you are looking for a true western summer job high in the mountains of Wyoming, and are motivated with a strong dedication to honesty, customer service, and western hospitality, we would be very interested in hiring you as soon as we can check out your references. Our summer season runs from May 10th through Mid-October.
