Trained supervisors, job training are non-existent. Management team are lifers who dislike new people coming in. Will make your work environment hostile.

Good work, difficult to get your foot in the door. Once you have a seasonal position, can move around to different parks if you are interested in that. Moving to full time, permanent is very difficult and can be tough since most positions already have a candidate in mind before the posting.

It was a good job. Work life Balance was great. Job was in Denver so it was little tricky to say the pay was good due to cost of living going up rampant in Denver Metro.

independent work schedule. Paid overtime if needed without questions. Trusted employees to do jobs with minimal supervision but always there to help.
