    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Xanterra for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Location, Room and board are supplied, consistent schedule, always have days off in a row, great experience.

    Cons

    They purposefully under staff, at the end of the season a lot of the Visa students go back home, so you are usually left with a small staff. If you are not a manager, do not expect to make a great deal of money. Also a lot of employees will either quit or get fired, making the job pretty stressful. Other than that I think Xanterra gets a bad rap sometimes for things that are not their fault.

    I worked at Xanterra full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Obviously the best reason to work with Xanterra is getting to work in such remarkable places. I was in Yellowstone for 2 years, and having that experience alone was well worth it. Xanterra also has many routes to advance your employment level if you are in certain departments.

    Cons

    They can be somewhat bureaucratic. Sometimes the focus is set so squarely on policy that they remove the human element from their decision making
