I'm going to be working for The Delaware North Company at their Canyon retail store May through October. I'm sort of ignorant about Yellowstone, as I have never worked or even visited there. Not that I haven't wanted to(I've wanted to since Yogi Bear was stealing picinic baskets on Saturday Mornings). It's just that the oppurtunity never came up. Being a southern boy whose father is a gambler, it seems that the closest my family ever came was Vegas. Recently, though I have discovered the wonderful world of seasonal work, and it has opened a door of possibilities I hadn't considered plausible at this point in my life. Anyhow, I digress.
I have been doing as much internet reading as I can, but I know that this pales in comparison to actual interaction with former and current employees of the park. I understand that the Canyon is a pretty central location in the park, and that I'll be working retail there. It would be nice to know if anyone had any thoughts, tips, warnings, tales, etc. about what I might expect to encounter there. Also, if anyone else will be working there around the same time, I'd love to converse. I'm going to get around to seeing as much of the park as I possibly can, but I have a feeling that things will tend to revolve around the Canyon area for me on most days . Anyways thanks.

I have no clue about winter work at Yellowstone. I know there aren't near as many people working in the winter as there are in the other seasons.
