CO: Foothills Lodge and Cabins
(Needs a Working Assistant Innkeeper Couple)
Foothills Lodge and Cabins is a small, family run cabin property in Colorado. Wolf Creek Ski Area is 17 miles up the mountain. We are situated at 8200’ above sea level, central to all outdoor sports year round: snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sledding, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, ice climbing, mountain biking, hiking, Gold Medal fishing, hunting, 4-wheeling, ATVing, golf, and more.
Foothills Lodge and Cabins needs a working assistant innkeeper couple. This position is being offered as a long term position of one year or more, although we will consider seasonal applicants if we are unable to fill this position with permanent personnel.
Position requires working in all aspects of the business, including but not limited to: housekeeping, laundry, guest check in/check out, guest relations, repairs, hot tub maintenance, lawn maintenance, errands, reservations, painting, carpet cleaning, being available for cabin emergencies, helping with snow clearing, baking cookies for guests, maybe even some sewing repairs. All employees on property work together at all tasks and are cross trained. If anything needs done, you must be willing to jump right in and cheerfully take care of it. You need to be genuinely happy people with smiles that are great with people and animals and with a positive "can do" attitude. It's vital that you are happy and willing to work at any task.
This Foothills Lodge and Cabins position offers a minimum of 20 hours per person per week (in slow seasons/off season) to 40 hours a week in busier seasons. There is a possibility you may be asked to work more than 40 hours some weeks due to heavy guest traffic. Hours will vary week to week according to occupancy. We work weekends and holidays. Actual hours worked vary according to guest needs. Although we will try to adhere to a schedule, we must remain flexible as to actual hours worked.
You may not be scheduled to work the same hours together on any given day. This position does not anticipate a couple works together every day but we strive to offer two days off together
each week. You may be working at different tasks on any given day. One week might be 25 hours with the next week being 35 hours or more with a minimum guarantee of not less than 20 hours per week. Please be prepared to be flexible and enjoy the great outdoors that surrounds us.
Housing offered is a small rustic style (tongue and groove walls/ceiling) furnished studio type cabin set up with kitchen. Five hours per week per person will be worked in exchange for housing. All other hours are paid hours. Housing includes utilities, use of phones (local calls), free wifi, cable TV, and use of laundry facilities.
Only those able to take direction and then work independently to follow through on those directions can be considered for employment at Foothills Lodge and Cabins. We require self starters able to organize work needing done and carry out the work efficiently and quickly.
Pay is $7.50 per hour (per person). There are minimal tips to be split between employees.
The couple hired for this position will be considered essential personnel and must be very responsible, guest service oriented, and willing to go the extra mile if/when required.
Our business philosophy is based on bonuses for work well done. You may receive bonuses at management discretion.
Experience has taught us only happy, flexible people fit in here at Foothills Lodge and Cabins, and we will, unfortunately, not be able to keep anyone with less than cheerful attitudes coming here to work and live. We are only able to consider non smokers, non drug users, and people that are not problem drinkers. We are a small, family oriented property. Our property is focused on a healthy environment for our guests.
