Yippeee!...........Shenandoah called me

Posted on February 17, 2010 at 8:56am 1 Comment

Shenandoah called me and offered me a bellman position. It was a long job hunt, but it's finally over for me.

Anyone ever worked at Shenandoah ?

Posted on January 24, 2010 at 2:25pm 0 Comments

I have applied to Shenandoah and I am wondering if there is anyone out there who has worked there? any advice is greatly appreciated

Mt. Rainier

I would not recommend Mt. Rainier to anyone. The housing is the worse of any Park that I have worked in. (4 or more people per room in some cases), 25 people sharing one shower. The work atmosphere is bad at Mt. Rainier too. There is alot of apathy in senior management and favoritism. The stress is so bad, a guest asked a fellow employee what is wrong with the staff. There are many Parks, i recommend you go somewhere else.

Hey Dale, happy to hear you took the job with Shenandoah! When is your start date? I'm heading up there March 15th and arriving on the 16th leaving out of Atlanta. I'm going to be working in one of the campgrounds selling firewood and maintaining the pay-shower and laundry facilities! My e-mail address is Braveheart812@gmail.com if you want to e-mail, more easily.
Thanks and see you soon,
William
