Fairly flexible schedule! A lot of fun people!
The flexibility of the schedule can be a downside if sickness or unforeseen circumstances arise

The experience alone is worth it to me. I love the ability to work outdoors and I love that I'm able to see new sights every day. On top of all that, I'm able to keep learning and I get paid for all training courses that I do. I'm able to ride in UTV's, use Drip Torches, climb mountains, and drive cross country to assist other forests with Firefighting. I may not get much pay yet but I love this job.
The pay sucks. You get paid the very bottom unless you have some sort of diploma or service history that would grant you the ability to start at a higher grade. And the length in between pay raises gets wider and wider every increase. You also devote a lot of time to this job. It is known to destroy relationships and families from lack of work-life balance. If you want time with family and loved ones then this isn't necessarily the job for you.
