Server in Yellowstone National Park

Server (Former Employee)
Yellowstone National Park, WY

ProsLive and work in the park! I got the chance to spend the entire season in Yellowstone. I met so many awesome people from around the world, while making REALLY good money.

ConsAs a server we did 48-50 hour work weeks. Many times you work until 11-12 at night and are expected to work breakfast at 6 AM. Lots of people got fired for things done outside of work. I.E. Underage drinking, drugs, public intox and so on. How you behave yourself outside of work does matter a lot here. With so many people being fired, and no one new being hired, the work loads and shifts continued to get heavier. Dorm living isn't terrible. Employee dining room wasn't the best.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage more teamwork! There were no negative (or positive) reinforcements for teamwork, so many people only worked the 'bare minimum', which is really frustrating in a FOH position.

    I worked at Xanterra full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Free food, cheap housing, opportunities for advancement, friendly and well… Cons: There are properties run by Xanterra all over the country, corporate Xanterra seems either unaware or unconcerned with whats going on at their properties.
