Foot Hills Lodge and Cabins
(Foot Hills Lodge and Cabins Staff)
Foot Hills Lodge and Cabins a cabin property with 15 guest cabins. Our property is near Wolf Creek Ski Area in Colorado. We are central to all outdoor sports year round. We are a small, family run property.
Main qualification for working with us is attitude. We seek people with smiles and a "can do" attitude. We are looking for team players willing to work at anything needing attention from painting inside/out, lawns (we really need sprucing up outdoors with some beautification projects and flowers), window cleaning, caulking, grouting, minor repairs, hot tub maintenance, carpet cleaning, housekeeping, laundry, front desk, available in the event of middle of the night guest emergencies (not often, perhaps a few times a year). If anything needs done, you must be willing to cheerfully take care of it.
To work at Foot Hills Lodge and Cabins, you will need to be great with people. We look for genuinely happy people with smiles and "can do" attitudes, who are happy and willing to work at any task. To work at Foot Hills Lodge and Cabins, you must love animals (we have six).
No smoking. No problem drinkers.
Experience has taught us only happy, flexible people fit in here. We will, unfortunately, not be able to keep anyone with less than cheerful attitudes coming here to work and live.
The real return here is the awesome quality of life this area affords. No one is going to get rich here. We live in a gorgeous place.
Only those able to self direct and work independently will be considered. We require self starters able to organize work needing done, present work to us for prioritization, then carry out the work efficiently and quickly.
Pay is minimum wage ($7.25 per hour at this time in Colorado). Ten hours per week in exchange for housing in our employee quarters. Employees quarters is a studio type set up. Housing includes cable TV, wifi, local telephone, utilities, and use of snowshoes when not in use.
Hours are negotiable, up to 40 hours per week. Desired hours will be negotiated with you prior to hiring with the understanding there can be some variation in the number of hours according to our occupancy. Actual hours worked may vary according to guest needs (may be a few hours more or less in any given week according to guest and property needs). Although we will try to adhere to a schedule, we need to remain flexible as to actual hours worked. The best example might be if we agreed to a 20 hour week, one week could be 18 hours with the next week being 22 hours (with the goal to provide a 20 hour week if that is what we negotiated). We will strive to meet a schedule but experience has taught us there are variations from week to week.
The general hours we work are anywhere from 8am to 9pm (the hours we are open). Although, most work is done between the hours of 9am-5pm. We work weekends and holidays.
Sometimes, there are guest tips.
If a couple is hired, each of you will be working at separate tasks, not together, most of the time. Although we will make every attempt to schedule you similar hours, it may not always work out. For example, one person may be working on lawns while the other is working at the front desk, housekeeping or laundry. There may be times one is scheduled to work and the other is not due to occupancy levels.
