2017 Summer - Yellowstone Club (Shuttle Driver) - Montana (Housing in Winter)

2017/18 Winter - Yellowstone Club (Shuttle Driver) - Montana (Housing)

2018 Summer - Summer Off 

All the places listed above all had housing that was provided by the resort that I worked at. Yellowstone Club can become tricky in the summer because they do not have that much housing in the summer. Its really hard to say what my favorite places are and I have honestly been pretty happy at all those places above. I don't spend that much money and enjoy saving money because its like a game to me to see how much I can save each season.

So if you are thinking about going to any of those places feel free to drop me a message and I check my account here like once a week or so. I am more than happy to answer any questions that you may have about any of those places above. I have stayed in Big Sky area for the longest and the area is amazing if you can find a way to stay year round. The area is really growing. If its between Big Sky and Yellowstone Club I would pick Yellowstone Club because you will make more money at the YC.

If I had to pick my favorite season I would have to say winter because if you are a ski bum or a ski bum that works being a Lift Operator is the way to go, get paid to ski and enjoy the ski resort atmosphere. 




Giving up my home

2018-03-18T22:53:21.348Z

HI everyone, ,

Just wondering if anyone has had success in giving up their "homebase" and doing seasonal work only. I would like to rent out my home for one year, or longer and focus on working only seasonal jobs with room and board.  Just wondering how feasible it is, I worry if there ended up being a large gap between gigs/seasons I would have no where to land.  I could visit family, but that would really only work for a few weeks.  

My main goal is to save money and to do…

My main goal is to save money and to do some travel.  I have a summer/fall job in Vermont that will begin May 8th and ends Oct 26.  Looks like most winter gigs begin December/January, which would not be to bad.

Any feedback advice or experience you are will to share is welcome!!

Thank you

Judi

Estimated Income for First Timer

2018-03-08T02:08:45.474Z

I'm thinking about closing my business and seeking a National Park job with a concessionaire during the 2019 spring to fall season. First, I need to do some financial planning. If anyone can give me a rough estimate of an hourly or weekly wage for an entry level position, I'd appreciate it. I'm thinking I might like working as a clerk in a store, front desk in a hotel, or a tour guide. I've tried to find salary information on job descriptions, but that information does not seem to be…

Has anyone been a server in Yellowstone??

2018-02-13T19:36:16.183Z

I just received a job offer from Yellowstone as  server. I was looking over all the information and was just curious if I could find someone else who has done that job before to fill me in.

pannamint springs

2018-01-26T11:14:09.624Z

panamint springs is advertising for cooks and housekeeping. If you consider yourself a professional cook, don't bother with this place. The hardest thing that's cooked there is a burger. yep, it's a tourist deadend over priced pizza slop house. Just outside of the employee housing area is a junkyard of old broken down kitchen, store supplies, vehicles and general B.S. Area. Next to the living area is a polluted little creek and what they call a pool. the pool is full of some kind of growth.…

Just outside of the employee housing area is a junkyard of old broken down kitchen, store supplies, vehicles and general B.S. Area. Next to the living area is a polluted little creek and what they call a pool. the pool is full of some kind of growth. it's a nasty unsafe environment. the kitchen has electrical wiring hanging from the ceiling, pure filth! I spent a whole 3 weeks there. It cost me more to get there and home than I made. I've done a lot of seasonal work. ( am a kitchen mgr. elsewhere this coming season) I've never worked at such a dump in my life! I should have sued

Yep, pots legal in Cali. Great! But it doesn't belong in the work place. After work, well... yooohoooo! but not while your working. Not at this place, if ya aren't stoned while there ya cant tolerate your surroundings. 

housekeeping peeps, the rooms are 100 years old, dusty, worn out, filthy ------------! Most of housekeeping work is done outside or in an old semi trailer that's been converted into a store room. 

There's NO professionalism at this place.
