Whats the most embarrassing situation?You often catch people *** out in the middle of nowhere. And sometimes they're dressed up in ridiculous costumes, like furries or gimp suits, *** like that.
How did you get this position? Favorite thing about the job? Least favorite thing?I wrote the best/worst thing earlier, and I'm in a hurry now b/c I'm actually on my way to work at 3AM now, lol. But I got the position by starting out as a volunteer. Make friends that way, learn a lot about the park, and when the seasonal jobs come along, just keep applying. Definitely start as a volunteer though, or else you will most likely be overlooked for someone who has.
Best and worst parts about your job?Best part obviously is just being out in nature. You get to see so much that it really keeps you grounded to what makes life worth living. The worst part is dealing with the ignorance of some people who just act like they are the only people on the planet and what they do doesn't matter. Leaving trash is a big one, but also trespassing into protected habitat areas, general disregard for laws, no consideration of others either by picking fights or just interrupting tour groups, things of that nature.
