I worked at Delaware North full-time (More than a year)
Yosemite National Park brings in a LOT of tourists, and Tenaya Lodge happens to be in the perfect location between Oakhurst and Yosemite Valley. Because of this, there is plenty of work and overtime during the tourist season. If you live locally it is a reliable place to work with minimal commute for us mountain folks. You will often gt to meet celebrities and other people of interest that are visiting the Park.
VERY dependent on tourist season. Sure you sometimes have foreigners in the off season but it is usually not enough to keep everyone working a full 40hr work week. Because of this there is often mass turn over. Either you get laid off for periods of time, or you are barely working part time hours. Each season is a little different of course. Weather! Tenaya Lodge is well over 5,000 ft. elevation and you can get snowed in at work! Even if you have a 4x4, sometimes the road gets closed due to the extreme conditions or accidents blocking the road. When this happens, you are expected to work back to back shifts often many days strait to "cover" for other employees that cant make it in to work. Tenaya will usually comp a vacant room for you if you are stuck there, but you may be sharing that room with other employees depending on how many vacancies there are when this happens. Management in most departments was very difficult to deal with at the time I worked. They either managed with fear, demanded that you did extra work off the clock, or just plain didn't know what they were doing. Some of this is due to management using work politics to promote their friends into management and supervisor positions. So as a result there are lots of shady management methods, personal junk, and sometimes even threats.
Advice to Management
Stop promoting friends into supervisory/managerial positions if they don't have the skills to properly perform their job duties. Manage your staff with respect. Happy workers = quality work performance. In turn happy patrons become repeat patrons which also benefits the company/workplace and circles back to the employees in the form of more work hours available. In short, treat your staff fairly and you will reap the rewards.
