West Yellowstone

What is West Yellowstone like?
West Yellowstone is a gateway community located adjacent to the West entrance of Yellowstone National Park. It has the character of a small Montana town with a year-round population of approximately 1,000 people. With over 3.5 million visitors each year, West Yellowstone has many of the amenities you would expect in a much larger community. There are many choices in restaurants and cafes and two well stocked grocery stores. For fun there is the wonderful playhouse theater, IMAX theater and museum.  Public services include a library, post office, banks, veterinary and a health clinic. West Yellowstone is approximately 100 miles from both Bozeman, Montana to the north and Idaho Falls, Idaho to the south.

Our minimum age for employees is 16 years of age upon arrival. While most of our employees are retirees in their fifties and sixties.

Our base rate may change from year to year but is above the minimum wage rate for Montana. We do offer an alumni premium for those who return to work with us year after year. The pay rate for specialized positions is determined by the responsibility involved.

Naturally, experience is important, but is not a requirement for most positions. We pride ourselves on the quality of our employees and our primary concern is that they have initiative, a willingness to learn, are dependable and possess a pleasant, cooperative personality. Excellent customer service is paramount at Ventures West. We are looking for eager and enthusiastic applicants who can adapt to new and different situations and will not be afraid to assist in whatever job is asked of them.

We understand that most employees are here to work for us for the opportunity to experience Yellowstone National Park. You would be scheduled for two consecutive days off every week. Couples would have the same day as their partner.

Most employees either live in their own self-contained RV or in a fully furnished apartment. We do require that you have a roommate with a co-worker. There is a nominal charge for housing and it is taken out of your bi-weekly paycheck. Please inquire for current rates.

We pride ourselves in offering our employees the finest housing available whether in an apartment or RV/Trailer site. All employees will receive free WiFi internet, DirecTV and laundry facilities.  Of course power, water & sewer is included.
