We're hiring for Summer 2024 at Pahaska!

Dear Prospective Employee,

This is your opportunity to spend the summer in the Shoshone National Forest and just 2 miles from Yellowstone’s East Entrance. Pahaska Tepee Resort is bordered by two crystal clear mountain streams and is directly south of the North Absaroka Wilderness. We are one hour west of the nearest town of Cody, WY.

Historic Pahaska Tepee was built by Buffalo Bill in 1904 and the original hewn log structure still stands. Today Pahaska is a full service resort with 47 rooms. We have an excellent restaurant and bar, one of the best gift shops in the area and a convenience store. We also offer trail rides. Wildlife on the lawns, mountain vistas, blue ribbon trout fishing and miles and miles of hiking trails abound! Best of all, Pahaska is privately owned by the Coe family since 1946. We pride ourselves with not being the corporate environment and being more people/employee oriented.

You’ll find our pay rates very progressive for our region. Wages are based on a 40 hour work week -anything over 40 hours is considered overtime and paid at one and half times your hourly wage. This year we are offering a generous bonus for employees fulfilling their contract date. We also try to give you 2 days off in row so you have plenty of time to take advantage of the many opportunities available in our area. Dorm style room & board are provided to you for a small fee. Sorry, we do not have housing for families or pets. Most dorm rooms will have 2-3 occupants with a shared bathroom.  We have limited wireless internet access for our employees, however we do not have cell phone service.

All employees must be 18 years or older and are expected to exhibit proper hygiene, a neat appearance and to maintain a clean living environment. While we encourage your individuality, facial jewelry (nose, lip, tongue or eyebrow piercings), extreme hair colors and visible tattoos are frowned upon and will not be accepted while on shift or in the public's eye on property. 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 $100.00 room deposit (Deducted from your first check). Pahaska is an equal opportunity employer.

We expect our employees to provide guests with western hospitality and always have a positive “can do” attitude. If you are looking for a true western summer job in the mountains of Wyoming, and are motivated with a strong dedication to honesty, integrity and courtesy, we would be very interested in hiring you. Our summer season runs from May 12th through early October. We look forward to hearing from you!
