    I worked at Santa Catalina Island Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Housing on Catalina Island came with the job and was automatically deducted from paycheck which was great not to worry abotu rent. Some really great, knowledgeable people work there.

    Cons

    Leadership is all over the place, the company is constantly shifting people around jobs so real connections can't be made within work teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to turn Catalina Island into Rodeo Drive in one fell swoop - it's annoying the locals and creating a bad atmosphere

    Pros

    Get to meet people from all over the world. It is very easy to network with people who are on your Tours and make good connections with them that could lead to job or intern opportunities in the future. Depending on your tours, you can get 0 tip to over $100 of tip on just one tour. You are outdoors all day pretty much hanging out with people and making sure they are safe throughout the tour. If you are in to Fitness, its like a day long workout. You are constantly moving around, throwing and catching people.

    Cons

    I personally found it to be pretty physically and mentally exhausting by the end of the summer working on the Zipline. Being out in the sun 30- 40 hours a week and having to constantly be up beat and energetic wore me down.
