    Pros

    Working as a Trails Laborer is a great job. It's a 4-10 week, so you have three day weekends and paid federal holidays off. The crews I worked with were all great people, and the projects and skills that you learn are very valuable. A lot of fun, and the pay is good too.

    Cons

    If you don't like hiking or manual labor, this isnt the job for you. We work in a lot of areas where power tools aren't allowed, so everything is done by hand. I really enjoyed that aspect, but other might not. Be ready to hike several miles in and out of your jobsite as well.

    Pros

    National Parking Service involved situations that were rapidly changing and had unexpected issues arise constantly. This truely challenges ones ability to adapt to an environment and keep a positive attitude.

    Cons

    The downfall to the entire industry is working hours that the rest of the city is off work. Our peek hours were 5pm-4am.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! National keeps growing in strength and numbers constantly. It has been a pleasure to watch it develope into the company it is now. I see nothing but positive expantion in the future.
