Well I turned down a job offer for Ceder Point. Had to have 100.00 up front deposit for housing. Never heard of being charged a deposit before. I'll stick with Grand Hotel.
You have probably chosen the better option. But I have had deposits in a few places.
Thanks for writting. I love Grand Hotel and am glad to be a part of the Grand Hotel. No deposits there.
Thank you for your thoughts.
It's not so unusual, but you know what your limits are. From an employer stand point, people not taking good care of their summer homes is a big deal. You'd get your $$ back in the end - it's a little insurance policy. I'm sure the Grand is lovely, too ! Have a GREAT summer !
you might have ask to see if they could take it out of your paycheck that would an be interesting place to work at that is on my list for next summer
I was offered a job without meeting anyone.
Majority of the time they just want a check or something and won't deposit it until you arrive and other times they will deposit to make sure that you don't back out of the job and even if you do you just contact them and tell them and they will refund your money even though it might take 4 to 6 weeks, lol. The one place where I had to pay like almost a grand was Telluride and it was sooooo worth it. I had to pay first months rent along with a deposit before I got there. The town is amazing and the skiing is EPIC. Like when I got the paperwork from North Rim they said I needed to include my deposit of $100 and I emailed them asking if I could pay it on arrival and they said that was cool. You just gotta talk to the people and they can work it out with you.
there is a few places that I've work had to pay a deposit to move in for example Jackson lake lodge but i got it back end of the season though so places do some places don't,some will work with you on it to when i work at keystone ski resort i had to pay alot to move in but since i was in housekeeping they let have an payment arraignment ,
