    Pros

    great company to work for, beautiful environment to live, work and play in, enjoyed living in the dorm, liked the food options available, loved working with the staff and guests, enjoyed meeting people from all over, lots of great biking and hiking

    Cons

    part of a union, so there are union dues, and those who have worked there longer than you can move into your department and bump you out of the hours you had been getting, especially when moving into the slower season.

    The hours are inflexible, the pay is low, and most hourly employees are not treated as valuable team members.

    I worked at DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The park is beautiful. It is a great place if you love the outdoors. Great hiking, camping, fishing and sightseeing. I have no Pros for DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite. Well, maybe; DNC losing their contract to serve Yosemite National Park is the best thing that has happened for Yosemite and their guest.

    Cons

    Management is corrupt, incompetent, dishonest and immoral; especially the HR department . A culture of bullying, intimidation, harassment and mobbing. This organization has no regard for employee rights, state or federal laws, health and safety. If you do not go along with the statuesque of corruption, incompetence and favoritism you will be targeted, setup and illegally terminated. This organization believes they are above the law. I am 56 yo, a solid work history, an Army Veteran and have never worked with such a despicable company and it's employees.

    Advice to Management

    Turn yourselves over to law enforcement for your crimes. This goes for your New York offices all the way to Yosemite California. Your incompetence, corruption, dishonesty and lack of morals lost your a continued contract in Yosemite National park.

    Pros

    I loved working in Yosemite but the concessionaire is not very good in keeping up with their employees.

    Cons

    Not offering position back after said employee is released off of medical leave.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the program when a employee goes out on workmens compensation and is returned back to work they should follow the rules and offer the position back to the employee out on medical leave.
