Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!

Well, we've just been notified of two things. Number one, our housing ( no food program except 20% discount at restaurants on location) went up by 59 bucks a month. So, for a room in a four-plex its now going to be $579 per month. as of January. Then, they've cut back our hours, hoping for snow or else its going to be real lean. Even our pastry shop is going to be closed at least one day a week.

I'm kinda looking around for other options.

Anyone thinking of applying for work here, remember housing is hard to find. They tell me people camp in the summer. I can see why.

the hostel is 25 bucks a night

my main reason in posting is to alert seasonal workers to this economic situation.

there are two times during the year its really slow, meaning you'll be paying full rent yet getting few hours. Some employees actually go into a negative balance, a sad state of affairs

just a heads up, is all

Thanks for the link, James. I wanted employee housing so when its 20 below and 7 feet of snow on the ground I can just walk across the parking lot. Many seasonal employers that I've encountered have way better housing solutions, and very affordable. Just want to let folks know before they sign up for this adventure. We even have some new employees "couch surfing" cause everything is full and there is nothing out there that's affordable for an entry level person. I may end up on a long ski adventure...they tell me the hostels are full.

Hey Carol, Have you checked into Hostels in Girdwood or is that not an option.
