Xanterra Strikes Back???

So, I have caused people to become upset and angry well I have done nothing wrong! I have every right as a person and a human to express my opinion on there policy's and the lack of care they show toward these policy's.



I have named no names or expressed any harsh words or ill will toward those who work at Furnace Creek Resort at Death Valley,Ca. They choose to do the things they do and with no punishment or resentment for there actions.



As for Legal Action being taken, None… Continue

Former Xanterra employee

I worked with Ron at Mount Rushmore.He was supposed to be a cook.He never cared about the quality of food he prepared for the employees.My job there was employee security.He confronted me one night as I was doing my job.He felt that you should be able to do what you wanted,regardless of the rules in the employee handbook.To the best of my knowledge,he quit because he couldn't get what he wanted as far as promotion.

Finally...

Well, it seems that I've secured a job at the Seward Windsong Lodge. Out of the THIRTEEN applications I submitted they are the only property to call me, which is great because they were my top choice. However, it seems that I should have heard from at least one of the others since I have plenty of experience and solid references. Has anyone else run into this problem? Properties should really let applicants know when they fill the applied-for position so one can at least weigh and pursue… Continue

Cabin Fever and Adventure Lust

As I read the new jobs available at Coolworks, I have to fight the urge to apply. I would love to be a Pastry Chef in Stehikan! I would love to work the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. How about a season in Kings Canyon? Yosemite, or Grand Tetons!

Right now I am working and driving 15 miles in the snow and ice to my Part-Time- As- Needed Job. It is just that: a part time- I Need It Now- job.

I asked my co-worker why we Americans whine about NO Job Satisfaction. She laughed..."…
