Agency: Karavan Travel
Agency Experience: Positive
Everything is respected and completed on time. Last year, I went through the Karavan on full program, this year on self.
Location: Newport, RI
Location Experience: Positive
The city I already described in the previous experience, it is a really nice place, a popular tourist destination, mainly families during the coming season. For accommodation is a little inconvenient if the employer does not provide, Newport takes a lot of students from Ireland and have their own group on Facebook where often seek roommates, but the only thing I can suggest is to consider this option. With that they are prone to making party how I got the impression.
Employer: Castle Hill Inn
Employer Experience: Positive
I debated with myself whether to write this experience because I worked at the same place last year, but still, a small update, just to be a realistic figure. As breakfast server last year hourly wage was $ 12, this year for those who have just started working timetable given $ 10 and only those of us who are here for the second time or permanent workers remained $ 12. Kickback is, but it is not mandatory, it can be from 5 to 25 $ a day, sometimes not. Compared to other job that I worked at the store $ 10.50, which was unthinkable easier, I'm not sure that's enough paid. Plus what they tried to send us home as soon as possible as soon as the crowd, leave only a few people to unpack everything. From this side is not doing well because of a schedule, a view that you shorten the number of hours and do not pay more than you have to. On the other hand it is good because it finished earlier, to 12 say, and then there is time for another job. As busser I made between $ 30 and 60 per shift. Hours $ 6. It was better than last year on this basis that I worked so hard. I worked and how much should be, not as they can, simply because it's not fair to do the biggest part of the job, when you do not get more than the server. Several times I worked as a server. I had around $ 110-120 per shift, with a timetable of 3.96. Surely that is possible and more taken as a server, but since I was a regular in that position, I would not know how some average earnings.
