I was offered a wiating job at Mesa verde. Judging by some of your conversations it does not seem like that great of a place. Do you happen to know if the waiters at the Metate room make good money?

We ended up turing down the Grand Canyon, and accepting Mesa Verde. We'll see what happens! We are in Quartzsite right now, and plan on applying to a few different employers who will be at the rv show. I don't want to put all my eggs in the same basket if you know what I mean. Have you decided where to go this summer?

I'd love to see pictures of the Mesa Verde rv sites if it's not to much trouble. Thanks!!

Thanks for the information! We had our phone interviews last night. I was wondering how the shuttle thing would work out. The HR director said it was about 30 miles, which seemed like a haul to me. They also can't guaranty that we will have the same days off. Kind of a bummer. We also applied at the Grand Canyon South Rim, and want to apply to Sequoia. What's your input on the those two resorts? Have you decided where to go next summer yet?

Hello! I saw an old post that where you mentioned working at Mesa Verde before. We didn't make it out on the road this fall, but WILL be this spring. We where thinking of applying to Mesa Verde as our first seasonal job. Do you have any advice about the place? Good/Bad? What are the employee rv sites like? Any information about other places with rv sites would be really helpful. Thanks!
