We hire university students from all across Canada and working in Waterton will be an unforgettable experience and a great way to meet friends. We have the highest staff return rate in the park!
In order to staff all of these areas, we will be hiring the following positions:
Front Desk Staff
Gift Shop Clerks
We attempt to match your background and skills to the openings available, but this may not always be the case, so it is advisable that you remain flexible relative to your job selection and we will attempt to place you in the best position for you and the organization. The applicants who are “open” concerning their job choices will often be hired over those with specific requirements as to job classification. We encourage Travel & Tourism, Hotel-Restaurant, Management and Business students who receive summer credit for on-the-job experience.
We pay employees direct deposit biweekly (twice per month) with all of the necessary deductions. You must provide a void cheque or a letter from your bank as we only pay direct deposit.
Each position has either an incentive bonus or gratuities. Incentive bonuses, as well as gratuities received from group functions, bus tours, and weddings, are held in trust by the company until the end of your contract date. If you quit before your contract end date, you forfeit your tips and they are given to charity. The reason that we hold your tips is because we are a seasonal business and require a commitment from our staff to stay until the end of their contract date. If staff decide to quit in the middle of our season, it is very difficult for us to fill these positions. Gratuities earned by servers in restaurants nightly are paid out and NOT held by the company. If you have questions about this policy, please ask! We like to have complete transparency with our team!
