Tons of fun, but horrible hours and very low pay.

Pros

Tons of fun. I made some amazing friends while working for Guided Discoveries. I am still close with several of them. My co-workers were some of the best people I have met.

Cons

Hours are horrible and inconsistent for instructors, and some of the other positions aren't much better. Pay is very low, though room and board is included so it keeps your costs down. Management dealt with issues (even SAFETY issues) if and when they felt like it. Employees who were not upper management are tossed to the curb if they are injured or would like to have a family status other than 'single'.

    I have been working at Guided Discoveries as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The staff is young. The job is fun and rewarding if you enjoy teaching kids. Food and lodging are included in your pay. The job involves teaching kids physics and astronomy concepts in fun ways and running ropes course elements.

    Cons

    The hours are long and you often start around 8am and do not finish until after 9pm with breaks throughout the day. The hourly wage isn't great and during slow parts of the season income is very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs more training.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
