What You Can Expect From Us ...
During your leisure time you will be able to explore Kings Canyon National Park and the surrounding Giant Sequoia National Monument. Marked walking trails are plentiful throughout the park for strolling, hiking and backpacking. You will meet and assist people who travel the world over to visit the trees and canyons that you will get to experience every day. Camping, horseback riding, fishing, rock climbing, nature walks, and Park Service programs are just a few of the advantages of working with our company. We value our employees and encourage recreational activities during the summer. In addition to free bear canister rentals for backpacking employees, we offer employee discounts in our gift shops, markets and lodging facilities. Employees need to arrange their own transportation to and from Kings Canyon National Park. There is no public transportation in or out of the park. Employees with their own vehicles will experience more mobility to the nearby towns and surrounding areas. The towns closest to the park are Fresno, Visalia and Sanger; each are one hour away

What We Expect From You
This is one of the most fascinating places you could spend your summer, but it is hard work! While you are on duty, you will work hard, and you should not base your decision to work here on financial gain. Hourly pay will vary based on your experience and your position. California minimum wage is $6.75 an hour and that is what we guarantee all employees. Applicants who can work the entire summer will receive priority consideration upon hiring, but we encourage applicants who wish to be considered for mid and late season replacements to apply also.
Teamwork and cooperative friendliness are necessary both while you are working and when you are not. We encourage you to make the most of your employment with our company, and we try to give employees two consecutive days off when possible. An average workweek is 40 hours, but not guaranteed, and employees must be willing to work weekends, holidays and double shifts if necessary. Living and working in the park is not a vacation; it is a hard and sometimes stressful job, but it is also an exhilarating experience that will stay with you forever.
