A Staff member who lives on a ranch must have a flexible attitude and have the expectation to help in any area of the ranch operations. A love for all things outdoors is a must! Generally, seasonal employees will live on the ranch in our employee housing, much like a co-ed dorm.
Each employee will have a roommate. Meals are provided during your work days, approximately 5 days per week. The chefs will make breakfast to order, lunch is usually a buffet and served with a salad bar, and dinners are also buffet with at least two proteins.
Staff with food allergies should notify the chefs so they can be sure to accommodate. Each position on the ranch has its own requirements. Depending on your position, you should expect anywhere between hours per week over days. Staff who are wanting to make more can usually pick up additional work on the ranch.
Should you accept extra work, we do ask that you maintain this through the entire summer. The ranch attempts to be flexible as possible, but additional time off during the summer is rare. We staff conservatively to allow our pay to be as good as possible. Staff missing shifts at anytime during the summer means other staff need to pick up your work. In most cases, some part of your uniform will be provided, but each job has certain requirements that employees will have to provide. Most often this would include boots, jeans, water shoes, and typical summer clothing.
