Great Careers with Banff Lodging Company


Banff Lodging Company - Employee Benefits

"We message strongly to all employees that Banff is a great community – a place to build a career, raise a family, to call home. We recognize why people come here – for the great outdoors – and we cater to those motivations so that they can stay." – Gordon Lozeman, President

Staff Residence

Staff Residence ranges in price from $18 - $28 per day depending on the type of accommodation and is subject to availability. Qualified employees in good standing with Banff Lodging Company will receive a daily subsidy towards this rent starting at $10 per day. This subsidy will decrease by $1.00 per day after every 3 months of employment.

To be eligible to live in our subsidized staff residence, an employee must be at least 18 yrs of age, work a minimum of 30 hrs per week for the company and must provide a criminal record check. All locations are within easy walking distance to work and all town amenities. A security deposit will be collected to ensure the proper upkeep of the property; this money is fully refundable providing the residence is left clean and undamaged. Cleanliness of the common areas (living room, kitchen and bathroom) is the joint responsibility of the staff in residence as a whole. Each staff member is expected to contribute in keeping all common areas clean and to follow the posted cleaning schedules. All Staff Residences are non-smoking. No pets are allowed. No visitors after 9:00 p.m. or before 10:00 a.m.
