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

Pros

The work is very dynamic. Your days are split between working in the visitor center, the entrance fee station, checking campground sites, and hiking trails. You're always busy and in a beautiful place, and you get the added benefit of feeling good about yourself for helping protect the environment!

Cons

The uniform you are required to wear is ugly, and they don't let you keep your body piercings.

Advice to Management

Make hiring more accessible to non-veterans

    I have been working at National Park Service full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
