Applied for security at Yellowstone with Xanterra and got called for an interview and was asked to look at the different locations. Been reading up on them and havent heard very many flattering reviews about them but many were dated and was wondering who had up to date info. Best place to work there? Best dorms? Anybody working there this season? etc.
best dorms-grant but dont spend your time in the room
best location in my opinion is canyon close second is lake
old faithful is the busiest
I worked at Canyon last summer and had no problems with Xanterra. Don't expect much from the dorm rooms, they are small and kind of run down. Just a place to sleep and change clothes. Spend your free time enjoying the park. Most of the employees that got fired was for the abuse of alcohol and drugs and the resulting behavior afterwards. The rules are made clear during the first few days. Nobody that I know of was unjustly terminated, they broke the rules and got caught. I commend Xanterra for being swift and fair in removing an employee that is difficult to work and live with.
"Be nice to each other, be nice to the guest, be nice to the park". I think that's the phrase they used.
Have fun! Yellowstone is a magical place.
I like Lake, Roosevelt, and Canyon.
Lake is flat hiking with Elk everywhere. Fishing and boating give Lake extra bonuses. Remote hiking across the lake.
Roosevelt has horseback-riding and a lot of mountainous areas. Beautiful area and excellent hiking. Small property.
Canyon is close to 10,000 Washburn and close to lake. My first seasonal job was here. Lots of Buffalo...
