Harbor Grill, Rhode Island, Block Island, Experience agencija, Novi Sad

Beautiful island. Very little number of citizen, a lot of hotels where you can easily find second job. When I watched the island over the images on the Internet is totally different compared to what is shown, ie. in relation to expectations. There are plenty of beautiful beaches and there are plenty of places where you can spend your free time. If you have it at all.

Narraganesett Inn, Block Island, Experience

I'm working on Block Island , an island in the state of RI , which was beautiful , very little, but has a very large number of tourists , and therefore a lot of work . About 90 % of people who wanted another job , find it , some had and 3, 4 jobs.

The island is beautiful , the people are great .. Was so much work that I never had time to sunbathe on the beach or swim . Finding another job is easy , but sometimes it's just a job and sufficient .

Building blocks, Block island, Rhode island, Experience

The island is very nice, I was thrilled, the nature is great, with long sandy beaches and lots of lakes. The weather is great, the temperature of 25-30 degrees, the only thing that has bothered me is the high humidity, but I'm used to anyway. Everything is close and all can be reached on foot, what I really mean, because I worked three jobs, and we were away after 5-10 minutes of each other, as well as accommodation. As for night life, mostly we went every day in the pubs for a drink, and 1-2 times a week in the main disco. All works to 1, which is convenient because we all worked a lot, so you again how much had time in the morning to get some sleep. We organized the party and with the domestic music, because the island was about 250 of our students, so we went out very nice. The possibility of finding another job is great, just make the job should start looking as early as possible, because they are already in mid-June, almost all the seats are filled. The food is quite expensive, there is no classical fast food, all the type of restaurant, but there is only one shop she also all too expensive. Many went ashore when they had a day off and then buy food, but since I have worked in two restaurants I had every day free food there, and I did not spend much money on it. As for earnings, it all depends on how much someone is willing to work. It used to be really hard, I was in the season happened to work up to 15 hours a day, but since I had a really excellent jobs with great atmosphere, I managed to stand it. Basically all ok last as for the money, I say again, all is how resourceful you are and you're lucky you find a good job. For me, the entire stay there left a really strong impression, I met many new people and experience is really invaluable, and back again to the same place. I recommend Block Island, as it is for me something really perfect.

Atlantic Inn, Block Island, RI, American Adventure

Block Island is a practical piece of land in the ocean . Beautiful, intact , expensive piece of land . No matter which is extremely small , the city itself was beautiful . Beaches are only in August crowded with tourists, but in most cases you feel like you 're on vacation when you have a day off. Nightlife in terms of places to go , there are a total of 2-3. Parties last up to one and it is a madhouse if you like the commercial music, but even for us who do not prefer , they are quite solid . There are a lot of our own, but really, really. The more you will speak Serbian than English . Some will give you discounts , in any case, a great thing . The city is extremely expensive , I repeat, you have no ordinary burger under $ 10 , pizza for 4 of us 22 accommodation usually despair , especially Eureka , but if you are already working all day , you just need a bed and you want it to cost less .

Atlantic Inn, Block Island, Rhode Island, Experience

The island is beautiful and peaceful . To me definitely the biggest advantage was the safety. But again, it si a very small island ( " center" has restaurants , and 5 shops ... that's it : D ) , and whoever seeks big cities and city life , it could be boring , it si more more for nature lovers (ocean , beach , stars, Lakes) . Nightlife - 2-3 Clubs and everything works until 1 al exactly , 1:00 and split . To me, it was not even that bad , we went out more often by little , just a little fun and dance , and yet you're willing to work tomorrow and get some sleep . Very expensive island , mainly people eat in restaurants and hotels where they work, etc. And like this they reduce their costs. Who wanted to find another job and it allowed him to schedule the first job , he could find it without a problem.

The 1661 Rita Draper, ostrvo Block Island, Experience

The experiences that I have at the beginning were very tense, but given the circumstances , but later everything turned into one big adventure. I met a lot of people, made ​​friends during my entire stay in America we were all like one big family . I anyone who has the opportunity should try because it was all a great experience and worth all this a try, just before leaving to carry out all necessary inspections , as in case of injury insurance covers only contracted to the forest.

The Surf Hotel, Block island, RI, Experience

Who wants to work , he can always find second job .. Ask for the shift schedule for the entire season , as soon as arrive, insist , even if you have to ask 5x daily for it . Of course, in July - August when the season starts it's a little harder to find because relatively all positions are filled already to the end of August , beginning of September, when Americans are returning to school so until then there aren't almoust any open new positions. As for the island , it's not to big , but if you work you will not have time to see everything (it happened to me the first year ) : D The island is very nice and has a lot to be seen . In May, it's seriously cold , at least it was for the last two years .. There are a few pubs where you can go out, mainly Serbs gathered on Wednesday in Kittens , there vere even Serbian parties .. In the beginning it was very difficult , there is no work , it look like season never to begin ... but then when it starts, you're asking God to end it : D This year I worked until October , and the most I earned was in September ! So my advice to you, is to stay as long as possible to work.

Harborside Inn, Block Island, American Adventure

A small town so do not expect a multitude of clubs or a large number of students from different countries so it is not boring :) As for the other work could be found , almost all of them worked two jobs . Who does not like big cities a good destination .

Bethany’s Airport Diner,Block Island, Experience

The first time I was in America and I'm delighted . I worked on the island called Block Island, on the east coast of America. It's very easy to find a job , I worked in the kitchen, washing dishes , baser and was host at the restaurant. At work, there were many Serbs, so that in the kitchen, waved Serbian flags and listened only Serbian music . Time passed quickly and we had a great spent . I went to the vigorous Novak Djokovic in the final of the US Open , he visited New York , New York, Boston and Miami in the end that is really something amazing, in my opinion the best city in the world. There were a lot of interesting experiences, but they are not for the public. I met many interesting people , of which I became a really good friend. I can not wait to come back next year.

The Oar, block island,RI, Experience

Island . 25km2 .. seasonal . touristic . Beautiful nature and nothing more . A lot of seasonal jobs. You can make nice money. You can work overtime... if you are working job with tips, you're lucky. island like every island, everything is little bit more expensive. but OK. not a big deal in general for recommendation. of course. everything is individual and it depends on you and your goals .. otherwise the acomodation on island is disaster. mostly .. although you can find something that is ok .. but you just use only to sleep over.

National Hotel, Block Island, RI, Experience

Block Island, a beautiful little island with plenty of hotels , restaurants , usually in the hotel. To the island usualy come family and older people , mainly the rich . :-D As for finding another job, is easy , the food is a bit expensive but you'll survive . :-) Climate is great, in July and August is over 30 degrees. Beaches are great water is little colder. As for its nightlife the island has 4 clubs for going out and all work until 1:00 . The locals are great. Most Serbs coming to the island to work , so we can safely say that it is Serbian . :-) The only bad thing is that from the island to the mainland takes some 50 minutes by ferry , and the first major city such as Providence is about an hour and a half , to two.

A quiet island, with a very pleasant climate, ocean , and I never had a problem with climate though I have asthma. You can find second job with help of sponsoring agency or you can find it by yourself , if you can inquire at hotels and restaurants.

Harborside Inn, Block Island, Wizantiana

Block Island is a small island , located an hour from Rhode Island. To the island can be reached ferijem.Mogao 're easy to find another job , if you come before the season (end of May ) , and then a little harder percent of people in a lot of time looking for work and the island is much more limited. On the island there are two clubs in which we ugalvnom out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Society I was super , so we made ​​every night party at the hotel where we were accommodated . :) Accommodation: We were all together accommodated at the hotel on three floors . Each floor had two bathrooms, although Ujut was impossible to use because of the large number of people. Each room had two beds, a microwave , refrigerator and flat-screen TV . Accommodation , we paid $ 75 a week
