I love this job.
Assistant Backcountry Park Ranger (Former Employee), Mammoth Hot Springs AreaAugust 31, 2013
Pros: riding horses, seeing wildlife and protecting the national parks
This position allowed me to be in the outdoors 99% of the time working hard and enjoying nature. Trails need to be cleared of fallen trees for hikers. Horses are mainly used as the mode of transportation into the backcountry. Campsites need to be checked, hikers need to be educated and rules need to be enforced. Greatest job.

Server (Former Employee), Yellowstone National Park, WyomingMay 22, 2013
Pros: free breakfast, lunch, and dinner. benefits, the yellowstone experience.
Cons: long hours, extra shifts, low pay, favoritism displayed by the management.
It was a hard job. Our hours were long and we closed the first three nights of the our work week and then opened the last two days of our work week. By doing this it would give us an a longer weekend. It was server wages of $1.65 and hour plus tips; however, the majority of people we waited on did not tip well. The older clientele did not know the going – more... rate to tip and the foreigners which were many did not know they were to tip us. Still we had to claim 8 % of our sales that did not even equal what we really got in tips. It was less, but we had medical benefits and was able to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner for free. Our room and board was extremely low costing. It made up for the lack of actual money I made. It was so incredible to be part of the park experience. The animals, nature, and there was no TV or radio reception in the park. The mail was very slow and on our weekend many of us went out of the park to the areas around to get to see what they were like and to get hotel rooms where we could watch TV and meet the local communities. For all the negative that the job held it was still an incredible experience. The management showed favoritism to certain work groups. We had groups that had certain days they worked and certain days off. My example I had Sunday and Mondays off. I would be done on Saturday around 1 pm and not have to return until Monday around 5 pm. We worked with the same group of people, until near the end when there was a shortage of servers then we worked all the time with one day off and multiple shifts but only certain groups had to work that way. Those who were in the group of the longest running employees did not have to work all the overtime. – less

A wonderful place to work
Cartographic Technician (Former Employee), Mammoth Hot SpringsSeptember 17, 2012
If you love the outdoors and the natural environment, your going to love working at Yellowstone. The NPS is a government job that comes with the typical government bureaucracy, but, your working at Yellowstone.

Seasonal Supervisor- Bill (Former Employee), YNP WyomingJuly 2, 2012
Pros: yellowstone national park!
Cons: a cafeteria that does not cook to your needs. (lactose intolerant)
I worked as a line cook and it was a wonderful experience. Never having cooked before, I was obviously nervous, but by the end I was highly skilled. I was able to accomplish the impossible when it comes to stress and this just goes to show the great people they hire! Besides the job, Yellowstone National Park is great! It is the most beautiful place – more... on earth! – less
