Xanterra came through for me again

Two of my ex-coworkers from GCSR have been at Mt Rushmore for about a month or so now. They talked to someone in a hiring position, named Roy, about me..even gave him my Xanterra I.D.# so he could look me up. 

Well I got a quick call early this morning from Roy, asking when I could be there. He said I could arrive tomorrow or wait 2 weeks if I needed. Well I leave June 5th, to work in F&B at Mt Rushmore. I never even sent in an application for the job. I Have no idea when the job ends, or even which job I will actually be doing. All I know is that it is in F&B. My 2 friends already work in the cafeteria there.

It's strange how most people have to wait 4-6 weeks to even hear back from Xanterra to get jobs. But I waited 4 days when I re-applied while I was in Alaska, and this time I got hired without ever really applying at all. Say what you want and that big company, but somehow they seem to come through for me when I am about at the end of my rope. When life is strangling the air outta me, Xanterra is my breath of fresh air..and my sigh of relief.

Now I already know that room & board will cost a bit more then I would like, I also realize I have to get a roomie, and that housing will not be as good as what I had at the East side of GCSR. Now excuse me but I have to go figure out what I am packing in the 1 bag allowed for carry-on luggage.
