Living & Working in Great Places
Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!
Congratulations Elizabeth Mary! What will you be doing there?
I will be going for my first time also so I cannot tell you much. I can tell you that employee housing is located about 10 miles away in a town called Healy. It is known as the Homestead or "The Death Star". It is a three story former hotel that is actually more like a college dorm. Some rooms have private baths some have baths down the hall. I think most people will have at least one roommate, maybe two. The employee dining room, bar, rec room, etc are there also. The run a shuttle bus 24/7 to move employees back and forth.
If you look in the Groups here on Coolworks you will find groups for Princess Denali and The Death Star Crew. Not too many members but there might be a few photos of the housing, etc. there.
It sounds like a pretty good place to spend the summer.
Which restaurant, if the main one, I know of several waitness that have been their over 10 yeas!!
Remember to keep your cool in all situation even when you get hit with 200 guest at one time
On dex days, some days we get over 500 coming in and they will be there for 2 full days.
And everone whats a window booth.
Like I have tolld other, pack and pack again. Keep it simple, but if you take some thing that needs batteries. take a battery charger. 99% of the time the little shop across the street will NOT have what you need. and Fairbanks will be 2 hours away. Unless you have your own carr and you have the time off, which you won't (very offen) the wait to get those batteries, sweater, or hairspary could be full week or more away. Room mates are schedule by HR. they usually do a pretty good job matching age and interest. But if you have trouble with a roommate..Go to Jenny in HR..don't put up with it and get your room changed. There is no smoking in at the HOMe Stead, outside yes, NOT IN side. Makes share each week you have enought changed to do your landuary, There is NO excuse for diry unformss and never ever be late for the bus to the lodge..its long wait or long walk, rather be early and wait for your shift than be late and be docked.
