Pros

Get great experience. Awesome people to work for and work with.

Cons

Only thing is most of these type of jobs are temporary. Its hard to get a permanent job unless someone retires or there is a person who leaves.

    Pros

    It is a relatively laid back work environment. I worked in a small office at a relatively small park. For the most part everyone seemed to get along very well and was satisfied with their career. No one was overworked and hours were pretty flexible. From what I saw if you want a satisfying career with a good work-life balance, this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to get a government job and the Park Service is no different. Pay is generally lower in government jobs, not that I would know much about this since I was an intern.

    Pros

    Great if you like the outdoors, historical lands and monuments. Also great if you are a history buff! Extremely fun job

    Cons

    Depending on what landmark, park, or monument you go to, could be difficult if you are handicapped.
