Jobs at Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park welcomes more than three million visitors each year. This influx of people means that there are numerous opportunities for people who are interested in working at the world’s first national park.



It encompasses over 2 million acres of property and is home to several species of mammals, including the grey wolf, and more than 1,100 species of native plants.

Xanterra Parks and Resorts is the company responsible for operating the hotels, lodges and campgrounds providing accommodation in the Park for visitors each year. The company also runs the tour services, gift shops, marina and horse corrals that are open to the public.

Positions are available from mid-April to the end of October. Preference is given to those who are available to work late into the fall months.
