Working for Xanterra Resorts and Parks

Has anyone had experience working for this company as a seasonal employee. They apparently have the government contract for the national parks.

As National Park Service (NPS) volunteers for 6 or 7 years, we have worked in close proximity with NPS concessionaire employees, such as Xanterra and Delaware North ... our experience is many of their employees are nice folks, but typically complain about low pay and they have to pay high prices for required meal plans, housing, rv sites. Many complaint about forced overtime, inconsiderate supervisors, inflexible work schedules.

YMMV

I have heard a lot of negitive comments about them but have no first hand knowledge. I always volunteer for the Park Service and never for the concessionaire.

How do you volunteer for the NPS? Do they provide you with a campsite?

Go to volunteer.gov, select "National Park Service" for the Agency drop-down, and "RV/Trailer Pads" for the Housing/Amenities drop-down. That will show you all the listings for NPS that offer a site.
