Thank you for your interest in employment with Des Peres Parks and Recreation. Please find open positions and application information below. 
Are you interested in working at The Lodge Des Peres? The Lodge is hosting Recruitment Sessions for potential new employees. Most positions available will be for the summer season, however year round positions will be included as openings become available. Anyone wishing to submit an application will be required to attend a recruitment session before completing an application. The purpose of the session is to give expectations for potential employees to be sure that job requirements match employee expectations. Details about each position will be available including required availability, skills testing and a review of our Lodge Life Values. The Recruitment Sessions will be held on the dates listed below – no appointments necessary. Each session lasts about 30 minutes. There will be no admittance after the session has started. After the session, applications will be handed out to participants. Attending the recruitment session gives you priority over other potential applicants. Applications will not be available to the general public until after the final recruitment session (if any positions are still open). There are many benefits that Lodge employees receive including a membership to The Lodge while employed and certification in CPR and First Aid. The following are the scheduled dates for our upcoming recruitment sessions. Be sure to come to an early session as positions fill quickly! If you have any additional questions, please contact Nikki at 314.835.6160 or email. All staff must be 16 or older at the start of employment. We do not hire summer only or seasonal employees for year round positions. The City of Des Peres is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Reasonable accommodation will be provided as required by law.
