I was just offered a position at Coulter Bay and I was wondering if anyone had any information, either worked there before or knew someone who had. Seems like they start wages pretty low. I've been a seasonal worker for two years now, this summer I'm looking in the Tetons and Yellowstone. Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys
As Brenda said . Even though you have worked in many other areas of seasonal work places. Most new employees in new companies will start out in base wages unless you have more then one year of experience in the same field / job type . Good luck looking in the Tetons , I've applied there and haven't heard back at from either companies :( oh well . I'll be in Yellowstone at Old faithfill with DNC!
I worked in Colter Bay the last two summers. I don't know what you're doing, but I was cooking, and I was started off at $9.10 per hour, which I thought was totally decent. Grand Teton Lodge Company is a pretty good company to work for. It's pretty big, so there are many perks and programs they hook you up with for free, like lake cruises, kayaking, etc., and you can meet a ton of different people. Also, Colter is their best location to work at IMO, being that the Jackson Lake Lodge and Jenny Lake get a lot more traffic and attention from the higher-ups. Hope this helps.
I got offered a poistion in the EDR at Colter Bay. I have a lot of experience as a kitchen worker, so maybe thats why I was so suprised at the rate of pay. But I guess with free housing and all the perks it works out. I'm still waiting to hear back from one other job I aplied for, supposed to have an interview with Flathead Lake Lodge in a few weeks and than I'll make my final decision. If I do end up at GTLC I'll see some of your guys there!
