Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!
I really appreciate you responding. 1000-1100 is actually about what I was looking for, although the room and board costs seem a bit high. A couple more questions if you have the time; You mentioned 7-8 shifts a week what are the total hours a week like? and also are the day shifts 5 am breakfasts or lunches? Finally what is the social life like (how many people are there roughly, are there a lot of young people etc)? Thanks again, this has been extremely helpful.
I have not worked there, im in canyon for the 3rd year with dnc... old f has the most people, age will vary.
it is always very very crowded there the inn is ok not the best but not the worst like the cafeterias yuk
hours will always vary sometimes busy sometimes slow.. tips with xanterra is shared...
the dorms can b very crazy .. they have young dorms and then the old dorms.. but the experience is priceless/// have fun
There are break-lunch shifts, Lunch-dinner shifts, and break-dinner shifts. you will get 3 nights (sometimes 4) and the rest will be a mixture according to the manager. Get in good with the hostess so you can get the front section...They usually fill the front and work their way back. Accept being the checker because you will get more tables as they cut servers.
The social life is the best!...young and middle and old all with similar attitude. Chinese, Russian. Argentianian, short, blond, .... there are more cool poeple there than you can imagine (BTW Denali in Alaska is the same way). All on an adventure.....
Imagine visiting foreign countries all over and having a friend to crash out with and show you the good spots. It is great fun..... Don't expect anything less then serious corporate though. It is a big business so you will meet buttheads also. Ignore that and then meet poeple and play! Also save your $$$ forthe time you are not working....
