KERHONKSON – The new Pine Ridge Dude Ranch, located at 30 Cherrytown Road in Kerhonkson, will be hosting a Job Fair on Saturday Mar. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The ranch expects to employ over 80 people; including 40 year-round employees and more than 40 seasonal employees.
There will be immediate full and part time positions available in all departments; Sales and Marketing, Front Desk and Office Personnel, Dining Room, Kitchen, Stables, Activities, Lifeguards, Bartenders, Maintenance and Grounds, Day camp, Licensed Massage Therapists, General Store and Starbucks.
The new management team will use local talent for their workforce.
“The ranches’ closure was a devastating loss to so many people,” said owner Mike Offner. “From the tremendous hit to the local economy to disappointed guests who have visited the resort for years, I knew we could not just let the memory or impact of the ranch disappear.”
Rochester Town Supervisor, Mike Baden said, “I’m thrilled the Pine Ridge Dude Ranch will be open and doing business this Spring.” He added, “A great job by Mike Offner and his team for their perseverance . . . Because of this fine group the Town will be seeing a new and improved vacation resort that will employ hundreds of area residents and will establish the Rondout Valley as a first-class tourism destination.”
The ranch is opening for guests on April 1, 2018.
