Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!

I'm choosing between a summer job (as a housekeeper) at Canyon Village in Yellowstone and at Jackson Lake Lodge at the Grand Tetons. I have never been to either place so I do not know which I'd prefer. If any of you have worked at either place I would love some general information about the work environment and experience. (right now I'm leaning towards Yellowstone because I have always wanted to go there)

Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Bailey I would vote for the grand Tetons... easier to get to and since you would be next door to Yellowstone, actually easy to explore.  Of course, I am biased as I lived at Jackson Lake Lodge for two years.  Where ever you decide, I bet you will enjoy the experience!  Happy trails.

i'm kinda in the same situation as you  even though i work at both places  i can give you a little insight  at canyon the edr is the basement  kinda like the dungeon   the employee pub is very  small at canyon don't know much about the dorms there ,at GTLC  the dorms or OK its  but its all  number   if you a partier  then dorms 1- 7 is for you  8 is all male 10 is all females 11,12 is pretty much the quiet dorms, as Brenda mention before u will move in housekeeping  and they will train you too just listen to what they have to say and you will do fine and  the edr in Jackson lake  the food is OK but less then desirable  most people  go the employee bar to eat the food is a little better,but one thing about Jackson lake i like they charge less then Yellowstone and they doing something different this year  they offering end of the season bonus  which they didn't last year
