Any 2013 Mckinley Village Lodge/Resort summer employees out there?
We worked at McKinley the summer of 2010. Would love to hear from anyone working in the area as we loved this area,
Last summer (2012) my husband and I were hired at Delaware North at Mammoth with the RV site in Gardiner where they said I could also stay even though not working for them. I was hired by Xanterra in Mammoth also, but their allotment of RV sites were already taken, and they had no jobs available for my husband so that we could use the dorms (we preferred the RV site anyway). We did not take the positions later because I had to have some minor skin surgery and couldn't get it done in time for the job. We had to cancel.
So, we worked in South Dakota part-time at an RV Park where I got my minor surgery done. However, while there, my husband suffered a near fatal heart attack with cardiac arrest twice from a blood clot, but luckily survived because we were so near help in Rapid City, SD, and not in an isolated area. We are members of the older and bolder crowd as you can guess, as he is 73 and I am 68, which we ALWAYS have told our employers. For some reason, they seem to think we are lying I guess. Anyway, he was doing outside maintenance work in extreme heat, because another senior who was 20 years younger but on disability couldn't do. I think they thought my husband was younger as he is very fit. It is frustrating that this happens as we would like jobs where we could get the normal breaks and considerations that other people of our age receive. We always give our all on our jobs. Anyone know of any jobs that are age-appropriate for us. He sincerely wishes to work, just not in maintenance, and has experience in retail, etc too. He has a stent now, like a lot of seniors, and is doing amazing. We need something too where he could work part time or not at all, and where I could do full time. Any ideas anyone? He feels the is ok in Yellowstone or Alaska, or ??
