I worked at Delaware North full-time (More than a year)
Mostly minimum wage, but after first year pay goes up. Minimum wage is acceptable here though, because in Yosemite, housing is available and is super cheap. If you don't have a car and use the optional meal plan in conjunction with the 50% at restaurants, you can pay almost all your monthly bills on a single minimum wage paycheck. Save the other 3 each month and you'll have quite the savings account in no time. Not to mention that you can tell people you live in Yosemite, which in itself is an amazing experience. Days off you can go hiking, rafting, climbing, whatever.
Honestly- management is sloppy. Standards are low, and employees can get away with basically anything. Get into an argument with a coworker on the sales floor? Standing around talking with friends most of your shift? Show up late to work every day? No worries, management will just waggle their finger and say "Don't do it again", and not much else. Also- as much as I like the idea of what a union stands for, Unite Here does nothing but protect bad employees. There are people that have worked in Yosemite for decades, and so they get special protections, even though they hardly can do their job anymore (both from severely poor attitude or age). Also, policies are rarely upheld except on inspection days, which we are all given advance notice on. A week prior to inspections, we are all given tons of extra cleaning jobs on things that should be cleaned regularly anyways (but typically aren't). My other issue is less with the company itself and more about the employee housing (which is operated by DNC). There are waaaay too many employees that need to learn to appreciate their surroundings better. When you walk around the housing regions, everyone's smoking or drinking (and they waste a huge amount of money, as the employee discount does NOT work for cigarettes or alcohol). It's a bad habit, and while I believe everyone should be entitled to do what they want, I still say that most employees are a bit excessive on these habits. You can save as much as $800/month on a minimum wage job if you're smart.
Advice to Management
Be consistent, don't wait for inspections to shape up.
