Work with wonderful front line people who are passionate about their work. Satisfaction from preserving a part of history. Meet alot of wonderful visitors. Enjoyable work when on site working with visitors.

Low pay, too many desk jockeys and not enough people on the front lines. Little opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Management

Get out into the field with your employees more. Treat seasonal employees with more respect.
