I worked at Santa Catalina Island Company full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Get to meet people from all over the world. It is very easy to network with people who are on your Tours and make good connections with them that could lead to job or intern opportunities in the future. Depending on your tours, you can get 0 tip to over $100 of tip on just one tour. You are outdoors all day pretty much hanging out with people and making sure they are safe throughout the tour. If you are in to Fitness, its like a day long workout. You are constantly moving around, throwing and catching people.

Cons

I personally found it to be pretty physically and mentally exhausting by the end of the summer working on the Zipline. Being out in the sun 30- 40 hours a week and having to constantly be up beat and energetic wore me down.

    I worked at Santa Catalina Island Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was great working for a well established company serving the many visitors to Catalina Island. Beautiful area with great weather. Positive work culture. Fast paced environment. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Housing options could improve significantly.

    Advice to Management

    Cross departmental cooperation could improve. So could upper management's involvement with existing operations. Much attention is given to new high profile projects, which can distract from existing departmental needs and goals.
