Job Details

Work Description: Housekeeper – works on the campground cleaning bathhouses, showers and cabins. Is responsible for making sure restrooms facilities at the property are sparkling clean. Some other light maintenance jobs are available. It has been our experience that it is better to wait until a student arrives and determine at that time which position best suits the student. Job interest, previous work experiences and language skills are indicators as to where the student will be most happy and productive. Quite often we like to assign a student to two different areas so there is variety to their work experience. If, however, a student indicates a preference we will certainly try and accommodate his or her desire.

Salary and Bonuses: The starting wage rate is $7.50 per hour for all jobs except cabin cleaning. $4.00 per cabin cleaned, the potential to earn more per hour is based on your willingness to work efficiently and smart. A year-end bonus of $3.00 per day worked is available if you fulfill your commitment.

      Hello Marcus, if you are a full-time university/college student, simply apply for this program: http://www.apex-foundation.org/work-and-travel-usa-apuwtfs/ The best time to apply is in October. Keep in mind though, as it’s explained in the program description, that being placed in or near Yellowstone is considered your preference, and there is no guarantee that your preference will be met! It’s simply impossible to guarantee that any of the employers in the area will select your application.

Questions? Ask below :-) In English, please.
