Help Wanted for Spirit Lake Lodge - Summer Employment/Internship Opportunity

4 general workers to help with both the grill and the lodge


JOB DESCRIPTION: Staff members help with the whole resort.  The job includes working in the restaurant: serving, washing dishes, cleaning up, running the register, and helping with cooking.  Additionally, our staff will be serving as cashiers for the store (in the same space as the restaurant). Also, in the morning, they clean the cabins, change sheets, do laundry, and chop wood. They may also help with renting boats and helping on the dock.  Employees must be 18 years or older, but no experience is necessary as we train on the job.  They do need to be able to pass a Criminal Background Check, and cannot use drugs.  Also they cannot use alcohol on the lodge property.

HOURS/SHIFT: Staff members work 3 ½ days per week: 3 twelve-hour shifts and one 4 hour shift.  They split the week, working either: Saturday, Sunday, Monday and 1/2 of Tuesday; or 1/2 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.  The restaurant is open only on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  So each shift has two days of lodge duty/cleaning plus restaurant duty, and a day and a half of lodge duty/cleaning only. The days worked are grouped together so that folks can go backpacking or drive home for a couple of days.

PAY/BENEFITS: Pay is $170 per week, plus tips and board and room.  Payday is every two weeks. Season is from June 1 thru Labor Day (September 7). Employees stay in the Lodge itself, which includes a bathroom.  They can stay in the lodge on their days off as well, but must supply their own food on their days off.  Boat rentals are free for employees (But customers have priority.)

DESCRIPTION OF SPIRIT LAKE LODGE: Our season is basically from Memorial day to Labor Day, but sometimes the snow is too deep to get in before the first week of June.  We are at 10,200 ft elevation, at the East entrance of the High Uintah Wilderness Area and the Highline Trail.  The lodge is where the road ends and the trails start. The Lodge is small, and was built in 1936, so it is an historic spot with lots of folks coming to stay or eat there for generations.  We have 9 cabins, the lodge restaurant/convenience store, and boat rentals (one canoe, two row boats, and a paddle boat).  The cabins are made of log, built in the 1930's/40's and each has a wood stove, which is the only source of heat.  We also heat the lodge itself with two wood stoves.  There is no electricity to the cabins.  We do have a generator for the lodge, which we use to do laundry and run the internet for our mini ipad which we use as a cash register.  Also, cell phones don't work here, so we have a mountain phone (1) that serves as the only phone in the area.  Also, there are two bathrooms with running water, (one men's, one women's) and a shower house that is a bathroom also. 

It is an amazing spot of paradise in a high mountain valley with 8 lakes in the basin and many more all around us.  For someone who wants to gain experience in a wide range of hospitality tasks and loves the outdoors, it is a great summer opportunity.
