Yeah, dude, I remember ya! What's your name again? I'm Eddy (disregard the Charles haha). I was a barista at OFI. And I remember you working at Signal and taking off not long after you got there. I ended up spending three summers at Signal, and for the most part, loved it. It was just time for a change of scenery. I was actually offered a job at Signal again, but decided that the lack of upward mobility wasn't working. I worked the Campground, managed it the following year, and then worked in maintenance last year. They wanted me to bus tables this year, and when Glacier called and offered me a management position, I couldn't refuse. I am actually going to be working at Many Glacier, managing their espresso cafe there. Heidi's, I think. I'm pretty stoked. They also told me I would most likely have my own room. So I'm thinking I was worrying for nothing. Do you remember Keith and Becky from Old Filthy? They're gonna be working at Lake McDonald this year. In the bar, maybe? Anyway, it's good reconnecting, dude. Thanks for all the info!
lol. sounds like you are getting closer to making a choice... signal is the way to go. i know the tetons well and that is what i have to say on that!!! lol. im going to be working for forever resorts at the north rim of the grand canyon so we might work together sometime in the future if you go that way!! peace out man, write when ever you have a question or just keep me updated!!
I was wondering how and why have you not gotten on with any of those three companies yet. have they not gotten back to you with a sure position for the season? i know that the three places are some of the most respected places to work and to work for in the parks in the food and beverage departments and am baffled that since your posting of needed info that your not in somewhere. i was hired on at jenny lake in 08 in late jan. and know that signal only needs to rehire a small group due to previous employee returns. you sure that you still have positions open with them? the season is right around the corner and mostly all positions are filled with agreements. just kinda curious since i'm familiar with there places and the hiring process.
hey~ well the servers at jenny lake lodge earn more than most seasonal jobs in the nation for slow paced and proper work. in peak season were talking about almost 400 a night! in the beginging of the season it starts slow but still 175 easy for the first month then the increase in guests occurs. so that is a plus. huge bucks. very hard to get ajob there since they hire a very small staff. and putting jenny lake on a resume you can work at any restaurant in the whole seasonal world and almost in most city establishment really. glacier i have no idea about. just know that i had a friend that worked there that said that place makes the tetons look like redheaded step children. lol that was long ago:) i really disliked the housing at jenny lake alot. and colter bay fit me much better. jackson lake lodge you can make about 200 a night. colter about that there too. well keep me up to date on what you do man. im heading to Bryce Canyon as of right now. but waiting two weeks to hear from GTLC. ttyl!
hey, jenny lake sits at one of the most beautiful spots ive ever seen; tucked up against the Teton range it is ranked one of the top 5 resorts in the country. the restaurant works on a revolving prefixed menu for five days then circles back again. all meals are included in the price of the cabins for the guests so wine sells cocktails will help boost up the ticket prices. very very professional enviroment. employe cabins are super rustic with about 4 people per cabin. the bathrooms are detached and bath sandles and a rob are needed items to bring. there is a little rec room that had tv with cable and thats about it. a run down pig pong table too if its there. very small crew that works there and in the restaurant as a server split shifts are common.
anything else about jackson lake or colter you wanna know just ask. i wish they would call me back!!! lol... waiting for the second interview for colter bay right now.:)
I don't know what the plan is. I just got back from the doc and he thinks I have mono... which would suck!!! I am supposed to be leaving next Thurs morning but the results won't be in until a couple days after that so I might call tomorrow and see if I can start a few days later.... I'll let you know what I'm doing for sure as soon as I find out.
