Pros

Work with wonderful front line people who are passionate about their work. Satisfaction from preserving a part of history. Meet alot of wonderful visitors. Enjoyable work when on site working with visitors.

Cons

Low pay, too many desk jockeys and not enough people on the front lines. Little opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Management

Get out into the field with your employees more. Treat seasonal employees with more respect.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at National Park Service is that the management and administration are great people to work for. The work environment was also great.

    Some of the downsides of working at National Park Service is that it is a government job and it's hard to get hired on as a full time employee.
