Program Details

We work hard and play hard. During August, we play host to the world as people stop by on their way to Burning Man. It's non-stop. We are looking for folks we can trust, and there's definitely potential to move in to a reception/lobby position. Most of us are Jack-of-all-Trades and pitch in if something needs to be done, whether it's flip a room, show someone to a room, rake the yard, do dishes, or water the garden.

Activities & Shift

Housekeeping shifts are daily from 11am-3pm at the latest. We run 24/7. Lobby shifts are 9-12, 12-3, 306 and 6-10pm. We are located in the heart of downtown Reno with many cool and interesting activities happening perpetually in easy walking distance.


When you are working, you will share the same reality as those who are clean and sober. Personal hygiene is expected, be willing to learn, be a team player and open to interacting with our guests. We would prefer those who have experienced or have been to Burning Man, or are willing to learn our culture.
