Part-Time Helping Hands: Spring

Imagine how great it would be to experience (live and work) in Yellowstone National Park. You can make it a reality as we are offering part-time jobs that let you split your time in Yellowstone between working and exploring by offering a “Helping Hand.” Our Helping Hands program provides you the opportunity to work part-time and assist us in opening up our summer season strong.

Helping Hands is even better when you bring a buddy. If you have a spouse, partner, or friend to join you, you can work the 20 hours (or more if you’d like) and then enjoy Yellowstone together for the rest of the week.

The Details:

  • Dates
    • Arrival on mid-end April and depart end-May 2020.
  • Schedule
    • Part-time (minimum of 20 hours/week). Depending on our business needs, you could work between 4-8 hours a day. If you want to work more, you are certainly welcome to.
  • Job
    • You could be assigned to the LodgingorFood & BeverageDepartment.
    • Your job will be whatever is needed for the day: housekeeper, dishwasher, busser, host or whatever is needed. Training will occur for each position. Each day it may be something different, so flexibility is key.
      • Room attendant (clean and prepare guest rooms)
      • Kitchen crew (prep, set-up, service, clean up, and restocking of food service areas)
      • Host (provide excellent guest service in an efficient manner)
  • Location
  •  Wage
    • Starting $10.10/hr
  • Tips on Shoes to Bring
    • Shoes must be black, full coverage, closed-toe, with slip-resistant outsoles. Material must be leather or non-porous material. Canvas or cloth is not permitted for safety reasons. Shoes can be purchased online at Shoes For Crews.

Your Perks Include:

  • Living, working, and exploring in the world’s first National Park
  • Free access to the park for the time you’re actively employed
  • Low-cost housing (dormitory style) and meals (cafeteria style) provided.
  • Wi-Fi (limited bandwidth) provided
  • Free Employee Recreation Program (hiking, photography, camping, wildlife watching, and more!)
  • Discounts in and around Yellowstone

“The [Helping Hands] program has been great. I have interacted with all of them and [they] are truly a pleasure to work with. They have been a huge help in all of the departments and I only wish that we had received more of them, especially here at Old Faithful.”

Cody Lockner, Old Faithful Location Operations Manager

“My wife Debra and I worked for the Helping Hands program from September 4 to October 11, 2018 at the Lake Yellowstone Hotel, where we thoroughly enjoyed meeting the hotel staff. They are a great bunch of individuals who make a super team. To be honest, we did not know what to expect before we checked in, but we were very pleasantly surprised.

[The food was] always plenty, always well prepared, always a good variety, always very tasty. [The accommodations were] very much adequate to our needs. Again, we did not know what to expect, but what was given to us was excellent.

Our overall impression was that we had a great time…we love the Helping Hands program and hope that you will continue the program.”
