Exhausting but fun

Server (Former Employee)
Yellowstone National Park, WY

ProsGood money (tipped positions only). Getting to live in Yellowstone and meet awesome people makes all the cons worth it.

ConsTerrible company. Terrible wages for non-tipped employees. The food sucks and have to pay for three meals a day even if you don't eat them. Almost everyone is inexperienced and pretty bad their jobs (cooks, servers, management). You will work LONG hours, especially at the end of the season. But as soon as it's over you'll starting missing the park and missing your friends want to go back next summer.

Advice to Senior ManagementCare about the people that work for you at least a little bit. Get better food.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

There were no negative (or positive) reinforcements for teamwork, so many… More
