Dream Job

Trip Leader (Former Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

ProsGet paid to hike, bike, and show people a good time in the best places on Earth. The guests tend to be very nice people who are enjoyable to spend time with. The co-workers are *AMAZING*. Hands down best job experience I've had.

ConsNomadic lifestyle, never home for holidays, hard to maintain personal relationships. Sometimes very long hours (but the work and people are so awesome that often isn't so bad).

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice to upper management - Tom and crew do a great job of making the best out of every situation.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
