    I worked at DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Inept? Enjoy being disempowered and disrespected? Then you'll love DNC in Yosemite! If I had a daughter I would NOT allow her to go to work here.

    Cons

    Living in a disgusting 75 sf room in a *condemned* FEMA trailer with residents who deficate in the community shower stalls. However, if you're *lucky* you might get a small tent to share with 2 other people. Keep in mind, chances are at least one of your new roommates will be a hard drug user or ex-con. My friend lived with a heroin addict!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP HIRING PEOPLE WALKING FRESH OUT OF PRISON. AND STOP PROMOTING INEPT FOOLS INTO MANAGEMENT/LEADERSHIP.

    I worked at DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Outdoors in one of the most beautiful parks in the world. Surrounded by constant companionships, you are almost always going to find at least one person who you connect with fully. Peace and tranquility, especially in the Fall and Winter. Opportunity to practice or master a second language and work in a global environment.

    I miss Yosemite every day.

    Cons

    The company can have some major internal miscommunications at times. During the summer the park is PACKED with tourists and so at times it is almost like disneyland rather than an escape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team leadership and spirit building training and exercises for new leaders.

    I have been working at DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite

    Pros

    Amazing executive leadership at the local level. I love being able to work with smart, capable people. Decent benefits - especially the one where you get to live and work in such an amazing and beautiful place. Excellent community. Great opportunities to move around and gain experience in different areas. Strong focus on personal development and allowing associates to learn and grow. Living and working with the same small community of people is a plus and a minus.

    Cons

    Limited housing opportunities makes it difficult to choose where and how you'd like to live.
    Living and working with the same small community of people is a plus and a minus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the focus and support for environmentally responsible programs. GreenPath is a program we can really be proud of. Keep looking for sincere ways to show appreciation and respect for associates.
