B Bar Ranch...YUCK!

They cram eight of you in a small four bedroom house. There cheap! 8.25 an hour and they had me doing everything from chasing cattle through a swamp where there were moose w/young, Logging, Moving a one hundred year old cabin........the list goes on! I was hired for guest services to boot.....ktchn/server/housekeeper. They also call themselves a "non profit" ranch. We saw a check for 70,000 for a group of 25 that stayed less then two weeks. This is the only ranch that I have ever heard of…

Gunflint Lodge

This is a warning from someone who has pretty much chose lodge employment as a career. I have worked numerous lodging jobs over the past ten years. Gunflint Lodge is by far the worst I have encountered. Especially if you will be a housekeeper! That is unless you enjoy working under a psychotic individual and when I say Psychotic it is not an understatement. As I said it's just a warning. Have a good one!
