    Pros

    Great Pay. Long time coming. Saying used to be you were paid with sunsets. Now provides a good wage

    Cons

    Work weekends, nights, and holidays

    Advice to Management

    Keep customer service and public relations in the Job. It used too be that the Rangers were highly respected and the State Troopers were looked down on. That has changed.

    I worked at National Park Service full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The park service is awesome in that you have a great mix of people, they usually love their job, you get to see/be in cool places. I also appreciate that the salary is competitive, and they are definitely not taking advantage of employees. Supervisors are upfront about the government funding situation, and try to be as helpful as they can in helping you land more permanent employment.

    Cons

    With recent government funding issues, permanent jobs are nearly impossible to get, most jobs are seasonal or for a limited term, and the paperwork is relatively horrendous.
