WORK AT ELKHORN
Around 18 seasonal crew work in the office, dining room, housekeeping, kitchen, groundskeeping and maintenance and barn. Most people arrive in early October to help open the ranch for the winter season and then depart at the end of April or early May. The ranch is open to guests from the week before Thanksgiving to the last Sunday in April.
Elkhorn Ranch compensation consists of a monthly salary and guaranteed portion of the gratuity pool and full room and board (with linens provided). Everyone has their own room and shares a bathroom. The ranch contributes to a portion of medical insurance premiums for second season and beyond employees.
We encourage you to apply for winter season positions in June or July. Returning crew confirm their plans by August 1 of each summer and we begin hiring for the new season at that time.
HOW TO APPLY
Elkhorn Ranch will accept applications during July and early August, and beyond until all positions are filled. We ask that our returning crew confirm their plans for the upcoming season by July 31st of each year. We should know by then exactly what positions are open, and we will begin serious review of applications by August 1st. Please feel free to contact us, preferably by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, to check on the status of your application.

The Miller Family & Ranch Crew
27000 W. Elkhorn Ranch Rd.
Tucson, AZ 85736
Around 18 seasonal crew work plus the Miller Family work in the office, dining room, housekeeping, kitchen, grounds-keeping, maintenance, driving and barn/guiding areas. Our crew is small. We aim to have well defined jobs and roles, but occasionally we must pitch in to help in other departments. Our family works in the thick of it with our crew. When we hire crew, we fully expect everyone to make a commitment for the full season — from ranch opening in October through the end of April. We bring people on about a month ahead of opening day to “open” the ranch, and we view this as an important team-building time. All the 2018/2019 season jobs are filled, but we will keep all applications in case something changes.
Good luck with your job hunt!
Thanks, The Miller Family
