Former Employee - Cashier in Bar Harbor, ME

I worked at The Acadia Corporation full-time for less than a year

Pros

People from around the country come here to work, so all the employees have a lot in common which makes for good friendships. The managers were all very reasonable and easy to get along with. Also, a lot of people lived right in the national park and were near to all the hiking trails and beautiful scenery.
Though the pay isn't phenomenal, you can pick up open shifts in any of the company's other stores.

Cons

The main issue for me was that you're dealing with tourists all day long. It would get exhausting since people don't always act logically when on vacation. Also, Bar Harbor is a cruise ship town, so at the peak of the season, you're getting 3-4 ships in a day. So it gets very, very hectic for a few hours each day.
There isn't a lot of room for advancement, but you do get a raise each season you return.
