Well, the season is just barely getting started for most. But i'd like to put in my 2 cents about working for Xanterra @ Old Faithful in Yellowstone. WORST COMPANY EVER. For all those people who had given it a bad review, you're right on. I'd thought I'd give it a try because all experiences are different for everyone, but they truly live up to their Xanterrible name. Among all the horrible management issues they have and other things I don't even want to get into right now, my biggest issue with them was that they went on to over hire an absurd amount of people. Because of this, the rest of us had to pay the price and people started getting 3 and even 4 days off a week. Not to mention our hours got cut during the days we worked b/c we had too many people and they always rushed us out. After this started happening, people started quitting, however, they kept hiring! No one can live on 3 days of work. I have never, ever, seen this kind of stupidity in the 3 years that I've been doing seasonal work. Glad I'm outta that s**t hole, and will NEVER look back.

Robert, I agree with you on the Grand Canyon. I worked there 2 seasons and won't go back. The women's housing sucks also. It's supposed to be single sex but there were almost as many guys living there as women. You couldn't go to the bathroom without having to worry about there being a guy in there.
