your best bet is to go to www.yellowstone.net. go to the forums and search posts on jobs at the park. I know that several of the folks there are familiar with with park jobs. some even work there themselve.

A couple summers ago we went to Yellowstone and dined at several of the places there. I always loved meeting the people from all over the country that worked there. We had the biggest sweet heart from Thailand, so polite and attentive. She said she loved working there and her experiences....

You will have a blast, stay safe and enjoy yourself

We went in 2000 and talked with quite a few workers, mostly young adults. From what we were told they got pd close to Minimum wage but lodgeing was provided and of course the experience. Everyone we talked to LOVED it there, some come back yr after yr.
I hope you have a wonderful experience, I bet you'll enjoy it, especially if you love nature!!!

i worked as a server at lake for 5 years. it was awesome. it is like college without school, and a lot of money. you will become pretty close to all the 400 employees in the location. the money is the best in the park as a server there. this was my first exposure out in the west, and i have not left. i moved to bozeman afterwards. anyways what do you want to know? i can give you the lowdown. try to get a room in PELICAN dorm. it will be quieter than OSPREY. the servers are pretty close, you will make friends for life, and have places to stay all over the world. don't let the xanterra management get you down. they always have sucked and still do. just take it in stride, as a seasonal worker you are disposable, and they know that. don't be one of those people who gets stupidly drunk on their first night and gets fired for doing something dumb. i met my wife down there in 2005, and we have been on many an adventure since then. good times. tell pee-wee i say hi, mike from bozeman. ask me some more specifics....

Actually they like bells and pepper spray.
That way they can hear the dinner bells and get lots of spice with their meal.
