At Great Wolf, our pack comes first and culture, training, career growth and benefits are core to our Pack Member Promise. Our Pack Member Promise is our commitment to each pack member ensuring your experience working with Great Wolf is the absolute best and that working with Great Wolf is more than a job…it’s a career, and sometimes, even a family.
It’s all about our Pack Members…
Even if you do not have experience in the job you’ve applied for, that’s ok! We will provide you all of the training you will need to be successful in the role.
We believe that, in order to operate effectively and give our people as many opportunities as possible to grow, that cross training is essential for Pack Members. For example, our Housekeeping “A Team” is trained in multiple rooms functions and even has the ability to self-inspect, meaning these Pack Members receive additional compensation and act as Leaders within the department.
Career Path & Mobility
As Great Wolf Lodge opens new properties each year, the potential to advance your career is limitless. Whether you’re looking to gain hospitality and entertainment experience in various departments or prefer to advance within a specific function, you have the opportunity to do both at Great Wolf Lodge.
We have General Managers who started with Great Wolf as Lifeguards, and Department Leaders who joined us as students working part-time. These Pack Members have been able to create a path and grow their career with Great Wolf.
Leadership & Development
Whether you are in your first Supervisor role or you’ve been managing people for years, we will provide ongoing Leadership Development and education to help you become the best Leader you can be. This includes dedicated training for positions Supervisor through General Manager. All Pack Leaders will have the opportunity to learn and grow.
