Live and Play at Grand Canyon
We live along the South Rim of the canyon, at a 7,000-foot elevation in the Ponderosa Pine Forest. Most new employees will reside in dormitory-style housing while sharing a room with another employee. The dorm rent is $16 per week, which is deducted from the employee’s paycheck. Employees who stay for long-term and/or have a higher job grade can qualify to live in an apartment setting. Sites for RV/trailers are also available.
No pets are allowed in dormitory housing. Couples’ housing is available, but housing for families is not immediately available.
The employee meal plan is based on a pay-as-you-go system. We have an Employee Cafeteria, which offers a set menu, plus daily specials that include vegetarian specials. Meals are sold at near cost in the “E-Caf.” A 50% discount on the menu price is extended to employees in our public cafeterias. A minimal amount of cooking is allowed in the dormitory housing. Grand Canyon has basic services available such as shopping, banking, post office, medical clinic, church services and a community library.
The secrets of the inner canyon, the slick rock plateaus, the heavily forested rim country – these are the worlds of Grand Canyon for you to explore in your free time. Hiking, biking, camping, skiing, photography, wildlife viewing and athletics are just a few of the recreational activities happening at Grand Canyon. C’mon play with us on over 700 miles of hiking trails and countless miles of back roads for biking. A year-round-outdoor playground is waiting for you. A community recreation center provides indoor activities such as weight/fitness center, computer lab, evening classes, basketball, volleyball and co-ed softball.
