Jim- It seems much harder to get a job in the Tetons. I am going to try at both Signal Lodge and GTLC. I assume that is due to the fact that both companies hire fewer people to begin with and have a lot of returning employees. Are there any other places in GTNP that I should apply besides those two? And, when should get my application in, December or January? I can work the whole season and I hear that is a positive for seasonal employers and I have lots of retail experience and good computer skills but I am willing to do almost any job. Terry

Most summers I've been emailing the owners back and forth every couple of weeks. But this summer I haven't talked to them since a couple of weeks after the season ended. (And Joe has my facebook and I think checks out my blog once in awhile here too) I know they had at least a couple of people they were talking to about the 2nd cook position, but I have no idea right now how those turned out.

I plan on emailing them next week about some things, and I will ask then. But in the meantime it wouldn't hurt if you emailed them about your interest, The website Just use the info@ email

That's a great gig to have. Keep ahead on your prep work if you can and the rest will follow. If I remember right, business picks up at the end of the month, then there's only two speeds, very busy and *#$& busy. Control your breathing, think of something funny, smile a lot. When the tickets roll, remember you only have to be faster than the servers...

I have a vacation in June and going to NH to visit family. Some I ain't seen in 5+ years. I'll spend the rest of the Summer at the South Rim to save $$$ to leave hopefully next year.

Hi Jim,
There's another cook (another Jim) that used to work in El Tovar that will be going up to the Tetons to work...he is leaving Death Valley next week to go up.

Signal Mountain! You are so lucky! You will have a great summer. DNC came back and offered me a Floor Supervisor position at their Yellowstone Adventures store, but it doesn't start until May 21. In the meantime, I am a Sales Associate/Relief EDR cook at the Yellowstone Adventures store. That's right, they are making me cook the food two days a week here.

Can you give me your opinion on North Rim? Housing or rv parking, work conditions, how isolated? Thanks
