How I feel about working at the DOI National Park Service
Program Planning Manager (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – August 22, 2017
Rich experience supporting the National Park Service and learning about the volunteeer.gov website portal provided to the public enabling them to apply and register for opportunities that they may never get the opportunity to partake in at another destination. To meet female Rangers who enjoy their jobs and the service they provide to the public. Various offices work on vast tasks continuously and it is ever interesting the missions of the agency and how it stands to preserve our vast lands across many boundaries. Discovering the many partners the agency has to utilize additional services across state divides to bring together the rich culture, history and beauty of this land. I've enjoyed my experience working within the National Park Service of the Department of the Interior.
Enthusiastic, accepting, and tolerant workplace with good people to work with.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Port Alsworth, AK – December 4, 2016
A typical day at work is fun and a learning experience. I didn't need any experience to get the job, I was able to learn on the job. I would meet new people and they would have their own projects. I would help them and learn how to do the work they do myself.
I've learn carpentry and how to build cabins and all the furniture they need inside. I've learned basic electrical work for housing and maintenance work. Finally plumbing, I've learn how to set pipes and drain sewage from leech fields.
My managers made sure we knew what we were doing and didn't hesitate to teach us new things and made sure the work place was safe.
All co-workers where exceptional, diverse and wonderful people to work with.
The hardest part of the jobs was going into the wilderness with minimum tools.
The most enjoyable part was going out into the wilderness and viewing all the mountains, rivers, and beautiful scenery.
