Ability to transfer between locations with companies like Aramark, Xanterra, etc.


I've been notified that my corporate work from home job is going away in just over a month.  Still adjusting to that shocking news, but looking at options and trying to decide if I want to continue to pursue a corporate job that is virtual or if it's time to drop out of the corporate rat race.  Not totally ready for retirement yet, I think we would run out of funds and as neither of us can withdraw from our IRAs, pension, 401K, etc.  So, we're trying to evaluate options to get us through the next 5 years until we can start withdrawing from some of our funds that we can't touch now without large tax penalties.

Lots of decision, none of them easy, but as I've looked at various work camping jobs including jobs in national parks, many of them are with companies that have multiple locations such as Xanterra, Aramark, etc.  Understand they are not high paying jobs, but with a cut in cost by staying put, health benefits are available through these companies for full time employees, we're thinking this might be an option to explore.  However we don't want to stay in one place indefinitely and I was wondering if anyone had experience or knowledge regarding the ability to transfer and move from park to park depending on the season, etc.  Something like a job in Death Valley in the winter, Yellowstone in the summer, etc.

The wife and I have looked at the corporate park jobs as well and have the same questions you do.

Hope someone can chime in.

It should be no problem moving around between locations and companies. You will sign a contract with a company to work for a certain amount of time during the season and when that time is up you are free to go to another job.

 I think the OP'r is asking about full-time permanent employment with one of those companies.  That way there would be benefits.

I found some information when I was work camping on MyCoolWorks.com. PIEERE

My husband used to work with Aramark as a driver and it was the worst job ever! I watched them dictate many aspects of his life and he felt stuck for the insurance etc.

Have you heard or considered gas line surveying? We travel working for Southern Cross Corp. They contract with local utility companies. They have to have their gas lines leak surveyed on a periodic basis. They pay each employee $200 per week per diem for rv space, car mileage, and rv mileage to travel from job to job. Only down side is you go where the work is. We are presently in Oklahoma City for a few months. You can tell them your preferences for parts of the country you would like to be in and they will try to honor that. The work is interesting, not physically hard ( lots of walking) and rewarding when you find a big leak and possibly prevent a disaster! We are planning on working March- November and take winters off.
