The Great Outdoor Shop in Pinedale, Wyoming is seeking fun, motivated folks to join our crew for the 2022 summer season.
We have been inspiring adventurers everywhere since 1976-pick your passion and follow it West.
We are looking for motivated shop staff to fit into a busy retail environment. Professionalism, courtesy, a strong work ethic, and a desire to learn are required. The right candidate(s) are experienced outdoor recreationists and will be able to enthusiastically and effectively assist customers in an upbeat, friendly retail setting. Applicants with specialty outdoor retail sales experience and knowledge of outdoor products will be primarily considered. Our environment is dynamic – on a given day, shop staff may wear many hats and flexibility is key.
Some employees at the Great Outdoor Shop are eligible for free housing. Our flexible schedule accommodates 3-day weekends for each employee, providing ample time to explore our backyard mountain range. Applicants who are self-motivated adventurers, and who are dedicated to exploring the area on their days off will be considered over others.
To keep you inspired, the Winds alone claim 19 of Wyoming’s 20 highest peaks, with Gannett Peak topping the list at 13, 804 feet above sea level. There are more than 400, 000 acres of Federally-designated Wilderness, over 180 active glaciers (including the largest glacier in the American Rockies), and over 3, 000 alpine lakes accessible by 9 different trailheads within close proximity to town. Pinedale is Wyoming’s first Gateway Community to the Continental Divide Trail. Each summer the Great Outdoor Shop hosts the Wind River Mountain Festival and the Surly Pika Adventure Race. Each winter, we also host The Drift, a winter race series, which includes the highest elevation winter ultramarathon in the United States.
