I worked at State of California - Department of Parks part-time (More than a year)

Pros

I got to go to work in the Redwoods everyday, and talk to visitors about the natural history of the area. The staff I worked with enjoyed their jobs, and were wonderful to work with.

Cons

I worked as a park aide for two seasons. There are a few down sides to this job: 1) it is seasonal--and you can't work for another state agency to fill the off season, 2) the pay is low with no benefits.

Advice to Management

The rangers who manage the park are great. I wish the State would allow seasonal aides to work at multiple state agencies.

    I have been working at State of California - Department of Parks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free access to almost all of California's State Parks.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up. The state's testing system is very broken. You basically have to lie to get anywhere, and even then most of the positions for which you are applying the supervisors have already selected who they want to hire.
