I worked at Xanterra full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Free food, cheap housing, opportunities for advancement, friendly and well traveled co-workers, beautiful locations

Cons

There are properties run by Xanterra all over the country, corporate Xanterra seems either unaware or unconcerned with whats going on at their properties. IE If you have a terrible GM (which I did) he can run a place into the ground. With the properties remote locations there seems to be highly unqualified and unmotivated people running departments.

Advice to Management

Find out whats really going on at your properties (especially Furnace Creek)

    Pros

    Lots of work for every type of employee. Easy training, good treatment, great way to meet people from all over the world

    Cons

    Lackluster management team. I became a relief manager very quickly because my actual manager was too busy with his own life. Asked for his job, to no avail

    Advice to Management

    Don't run off the people doing the most work.
