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®!
this is a great site for dorm photos and property maps.
unfortunately, no oe has posted pics of the interiors of the dorm rooms they really all vary, so hopefully someone who has stayed at Lake has some pics to share.
Generally, 2 twin beds, some sort of drawers and closet (loose term) rare occasions have a private bath, usually only "couples" rooms, otherwise 2 rooms (4 people) share a bath inbetween, or there is a communal bathroom (I think much better in that you always have availability) in which case, a waterproof type container for your bath supplies is a bonus.
Oh, and don't think you won't be working more than 40 hrs a week!!! people quit, they get shorthanded and guess who gets scheduled???? YOU!!!
however, since that restaurant is only open at night, there is a limit on how many hours you could actually work.....One of the busiest restaurants in Yellowstone next to the OF dining room.
I got schedlued to work 8 days in a row and I wasn't happy about it. this was at the end of the season and they were short handed. But they don't like paying overtime. they figure some way to finagle it so it spreads over 2week periods so the overtime is at a minimum.
Your cell phone makes a great alarm clock, as long as it's charged and on......1 less thing to pack.
extra batteries - expensive at the general store....there are some "comfort items" you won't know you need until you get there.
Oh!!! extension cord, andor one of those mulitple outlet things. We found alot of rooms only had 1 outlet, and it was difficult to plug in phones, computers, lights, etc.
if you're a reader (and you might become one without TV) some sort of clip on light for your bed.....Lots of books available from previous employees. Every dorm and the rec room has a library so check them ALL out!!
really helpful, j-thanks!
He said he was working Fine Dining. I was thinking that room was only open in the evenings, becuase thats what we took reservations for. My Bad, I was mistaken. Well Ashton, if you've been a sous chef, then you know what a cook 3 is.......I'm surprised they didn't scoop you up. But hang in there. If you are qualified they will move you up. And hey, you might deide to do something else in F&B that gives you more time for fun!!!
