Working with People
The visitor center is three stories with air conditioning and an elevator. This position is mostly indoors, except for tours. The dam is ¾ of a mile long, so you will need to be prepared to walk at least a few miles each day. Tours can take place when it is hot and sunny or cool and rainy; must be prepared for all kinds of weather.
