Good company to work for however, to move up you must be willing to relocate.

Pros

Laid back work environment but, management with the support of the associates get the job done! The company has a mix of associate age ranges which creates an interesting associate population.

Cons

The work hours are rough because many of the jobs are seasonal positions. The corporate office does not really understand what is happening in the field during prime seasons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More work life balance outside corporate offices in Buffalo,New York. Better compensation for seasonal jobs due to the demanding hours.

    Pros

    The location of the actual business, such as the concessions in Yosemite National Park, Sequoia National Park. It's a beautiful office.

    Cons

    They continually under staff, which in turn adds up to a bad customer experience. They cram their customer service program down the employees throats but don't "walk the walk". They have a monopoly in the different National Parks and they know it. If guests are displeased and don't return, others are eager to replace them. Managers are expected to work 50+ hour work weeks are encouraged not to fraternize with their employees in spite of the fact that this is a small community in which all/most employees live in company housing and work in the same area. Managers seem to be required to take a course in micro managing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Nearly one quarter of the 40,000 Delaware North associates who serve the world at everything from the Australian Open and Yosemite National Park to the 2004 Democratic National Convention and the 2006 World Series were alive in 1958 when Alaska became a state. Coincidentally, that was the year that the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) – and organization that has recognized Delaware North for being one of the best company’s for older workers -- was founded.

    Cons

    I am working at fast phase International Airport with long hours including weekends and holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time with lower management and listen to the associates needs
