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 $18 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 not currently 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.
