Poor management, beautiful place
Retail Associate (Former Employee) – Estes Park, CO – April 26, 2016
Working in a national park is a very unique experience. I worked in a wonderful park, Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, and ended up hiking on more than half of my days off. It gave me some great scenery and outdoor experience that is invaluable. The management at Xanterra is very slow and does not communicate however. As a government contractor, they do not need to compete against other companies, so they have little incentive to be an efficient corporation and it shows. Other than the park, Xanterra has little to no pros.
Great location if you're okay with only seeing it from the windows.
Short breaks if you get a break at all, long hours, mandatory overtime, short days off, mostly incompetent managers, conflicting responsibilities
