Located in the beautiful pine forests of the Kaibab plateau in northern Arizona, near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Jacob Lake Inn has been family-owned and operated since it was founded by Harold and Nina Bowman in 1923. We are well known for our cookies, homemade pies, breads, and other baked goods, ample sustaining meals, beautiful Native American rugs, jewelry, pottery, and other works of art, comfortable rooms, and not least of all, for our employees.
Our employees are in partnership with us. The experience they receive in working with the public and each other in organizational dynamics and entrepreneurship, as well as developing basic skills like cooking, maintenance, bookkeeping, etc. are a valuable part of their compensation. Employees earn a minimum of $2527 .00 per month (before taxes), and housing and food are provided while working for us.
We want people to work at Jacob Lake who are hospitable and service-oriented, who want to learn, grow, and increase their confidence, be responsible for themselves, and get experience and training in working at problem solving in an atmosphere of mutually beneficial cooperation. This type of candidate can create and maintain pleasant surroundings for our customers, each other, and the management at the same time. LDS standards (no smoking, alcohol, drugs, etc.) are expected.
You don't need prior experience to apply, though of course, it is welcome. Willingness, maturity, and competence are the primary qualifications. Competence is created by involvement, commitment, and creativity. We need high levels of all three.
But your experience at Jacob Lake Inn is not all business. There are a lot of opportunities for employee recreation, entertainment, and getting those perfect Instagram shots. We are surrounded by major national parks on all sides. The Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion Canyon, Lake Powell, and several national monuments are within easy reach. There are abundant opportunities for hiking, biking, walking, etc. We have a recreation area for volleyball and basketball, an outdoor pool, and an entire forest to wander around in. We have company parties every week, trips to places of interest at company expense, and LDS church services are also available. Bear in mind that this is a group experience which provides a chance to learn to meet the needs of individuals in a group. So be prepared to meet and enjoy the company of your fellow employees and management throughout the season you work with us.
