Live

Grand Teton National Park is located in the northwest corner of Wyoming, just south of Yellowstone National Park and just north of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Medical Attention

Work-related injuries are covered by state-maintained Worker's Compensation Insurance. A medical clinic is located at Jackson Lake Lodge and a hospital is in the town of Jackson. If you are under medical care we encourage you to consult with your doctor as our location is at an elevation of approximately 6,800 feet.

Banks

There are many local banks in the town of Jackson. There are no banks within the Park, so you will need to go to town to set up a bank account. If you choose to have your paycheck deposited directly into a bank account, you can set this up at check-in or at any time during the season. It takes two pay periods to be activated. Please note that there is NO Bank of America in Jackson.  The closest one is 2.5 hours away in Idaho Falls, ID.  You can utilize the Employee Shuttle to open up a bank account in town!  Wells Fargo is directly across the street from Albertsons where the shuttle stops.

Get paid

Paychecks are distributed every 2 weeks on Fridays (one week after pay period end). It is possible, depending on your arrival date, to work 2-3 weeks before receiving your first paycheck, so please try to arrive with some extra money to cover this time period for any expenditures you might have.
