Job Details

Work Description: There are several jobs at the ranch, you will be placed in the job that best suites you when you arrive. Jobs are kitchen helper/dishwasher, cabin maid/waitress, and laundry. All employees are asked to be flexible in their positions as they may be rotated. 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 wage is $1000.00 per month including room and board. Bonus at end of season upon completion of job.

Work Hours: Approximately 8-9 hours per day, 6 days per week. Our guest week begins and ends on Sundays. Day off per week will be assigned.

NOTE: Conversational English required.
