The state has great benefits. Lots of time off and holidays. The pay is competitive but once you reach the max for your position, you no longer get pay increases besides a small cost of living... increase.
You don't really get rewarded for working hard. Everyone gets the same compensation for their position and years worked.
Work outside, friendly coworkers, good interactions with park goers.
Somewhat low pay, hours could be inconvienient for some individuals (weekends/evenings often required).
