We currently have openings for Line Cooks and Prep Cooks to complete our exceptional food & beverage team at the Evergreen Lodge at Yosemite and Rush Creek Lodge at Yosemite. We look for warm, friendly people with healthy, active lifestyles, high standards and high integrity, who have been top performers in their previous roles.

Evergreen & Rush Creek Lodge prides themselves in serving fresh, healthful food that far exceeds expectations given our remote setting. Given our location, most of our 800+ guests eat with us in our relaxed mountain environment each night, in addition to 50-100 locals. Both lodges are a coveted venue for weddings, reunions and small group events.
The ideal individuals have significant line cooking experience, culinary training (formal or informal), are excited to support a great staff environment in a professional yet "down-home" way, and embrace working in a rustic environment in a relationship-oriented business.

EVERGREEN & RUSH CREEK'S INTERN PROGRAM
In addition to its primary function as tourist Lodges, the Evergreen & Rush Creek run a Youth Employment Program in which 18-24 year-old young adults from urban backgrounds join our staff for a program of career-oriented training and work experience in a healthy, supportive community, coupled with exposure to outdoor and recreational life experiences.
Although providing a great guest experience is our first priority, our Intern Program is central to what we do at the both Lodges, and we are proud to run an enterprise with both a business and a social mission. Our Program's success hinges on our ability to find exceptional managers and hourly staff who provide support and mentoring for our interns. Those who are most successful and happy at the Evergreen & Rush Creek are genuinely excited about helping others and feel our Intern Program enriches their job, rather than adding an additional burden to an already challenging operating role.
Evergreen Lodge is also a founding Certified B Corporation, having met rigorous, independent standards of social and environmental performance. Rush Creek has also become a certified B Corporation as well, working like the Evergreen to use business as a force for good.
Both lodges also host an innovative onsite hospitality apprenticeship degree program in partnership with our local community college, providing yet another vehicle for social impact. The combination of hospitality, recreation, culture, idyllic setting, environmental sensibility and social mission make the lodges very special and unique places.
