Working in a National Park

 

There are no easy jobs with Xanterra Parks & Resorts. The work at times can be hard and demanding.

 

Xanterra Parks & Resorts believes people are our most valuable resource.  Our success depends upon highly motivated, committed, and competent people who share our vision and work together to attain it. Our work environment encourages responsibility for personal growth and promotes pride in each employee. We foster a culture that promotes fairness and diversity, and provides equal opportunities throughout the organization.

 

Working at any one of our locations is not just a job, but an experience of a lifetime. After a day's work, there is so much to do and see at any of our locations. Let your talents get you here, then take advantage of all the splendor our parks and resorts offer.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our national parks, state park lodges, resorts, and railways throughout the country.

 

REQUIREMENTS

Employees must be 18 years of age to live and work in the National Parks due to housing facility regulations. Applicants should be aware that elevations of our parks range from 4,000 to 10,000 feet. Persons who anticipate potential difficulty working at such elevations are discouraged from applying.

Xanterra Parks & Resorts is a drug-free workplace.

Passing a pre-employment drug test or background check is a condition of employment.

Although we appreciate the individuality of our employees, we do have appearance standards common to the hospitality industry. Contact us if you have questions regarding our appearance standards.


Lodging

The state parks and resorts operated by Xanterra Parks & Resorts do not provide employee housing. Employees must have their own lodging accommodations. Most resorts are located near small towns with ample housing opportunities at the cost of the employee.

Meals

Specific meal policies may vary from park to park. Please note that because of the large number of meals prepared each day, we cannot accommodate restricted or vegetarian diets.

Meal programs and costs vary by property.

Availability Dates

Availability dates are a key factor in the selection process. Be realistic and specific about these dates as they will be part of your Employment Agreement. Your chances of being hired increase if you are flexible about your job choices and are available for the entire length of the season. Applicants who can work for the majority of the season will be given priority. Very few applicants can be accommodated who must leave prior to the Labor Day weekend.

Recruiting and hiring seasons vary by property. View a complete list of when jobs are posted and when properties open and close.

International Applicants

International applicants must have a J-1 visa and Social Security card. The Company is unable to sponsor applicants for employment.
