    I have been working at Xanterra full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company has many locations at National Parks all over the US. You can transfer park to park and see the country while enjoying Parks you could only visit not live.

    Cons

    It is difficult to maintain the same status when transferring to a new location and your salary will more than likely change.

    Advice to Management

    Candidates should be selected based on what they can offer and allowed to grow with the company. Remember not only is the company taking a chance with the candidate, but they are also taking a chance with the company. Employer employee relations goes a long way when developing positive experiences and loyalties.

    I worked at Xanterra (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can choose your position whether its housekeeping,front desk, maintenance, kitchen, waiter, hostess or lander keeper if available. You can live on the property in dormitory for employees. It is a good start for those that are young or old or any age who don't have much going for them in there life and want to save up money.

    Cons

    it is isolated. not much to do in the the town.if you are one that has to be in town or shopping everyday this will be a bothersome.
