    A Day in the Life of a Laundry Crew Member

    Early Morning

    Rise and shine! Laundry starts bright and early. The washers start up at 6am.

    Mid-Morning

    Get into the groove with some jams while folding, feeding sheets, and making sure things are sparkling clean. Head up to Mammoth at lunch to the Employee Dining Room or bring a lunch to eat at the picnic table while overlooking the Gardiner River.

    Afternoon

    Things start to wind down in the afternoon as the piles of laundry start to get smaller. Get off by late afternoon and have plenty of time to take advantage of the rest of your day to explore the area!

    Evenings

    This is your time to relax, enjoy the area, and socialize with new friends. Take part in one of the evening recreation activities like a sport, hike, movie, or game!

     

     

    Fun Fact

    All of the linens used in our guest rooms and restaurants are sent to our central laundry facility in Gardiner, MT to be cleaned, sorted, folded and sent back out into the park. Our hard-working laundry staff feels a great sense of pride in their work. Check out Laundry Operations on YouTube, our website, or in our blog.

    Candidates interested in laundry services in Yellowstone are drawn to the unique opportunity to work in the world’s first national park. You should be enthusiastic about our sustainability initiatives and mission to provide ‘legendary hospitality with a softer footprint’.
