    Great place if you like the events your cooking for.

    Most of the Chef's I worked with couldn't even use a knife correctly also they wanted me to work from 8am to 10pm and bounce back at 8 the next morning to do it again.Didn't hire strong cooks.

    Teach your Chef's how to talk to the cooks,stop being so arrogant.

    I have been working at Delaware North full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Experience Yellowstone National Park in all its glory, lots of trips out of the park and to other areas of the park possible.

    Cons

    Split shifts, pay is really bad. If you're expecting to get paid well, this is the kind of work you don't want.

    Advice to Management

    If you just raised the wage probably $1 more or so, more people would come back. A lot of folks I've talked to will not be back next season.
