Year of travel: 2016
Agency: AYUSA
Agency Experience: Positive

Everything was good, always up to date, although I did not like how they send business proposals and how these offerings are described but very good experience with them, probably the best agency judging by the experiences of people with whom I worked.

Location: Fairbanks, AK
Location Experience: Neutral

The town is small, but still bulky and you need a car because it often rains and still get wet. It's beautiful in the summer, the temperature rarely goes above 30, the city is practically in the woods, and when you go down the street you do not have the feeling that you are in the city .. People are mostly immigrants from the south in search of better life with plenty Eskimos and Atabaskans.

Employer: Fountainhead development
Employer Experience: Positive

We always had 40 hours, hourly rate plus 10.5 $ 0.5 bonus for each completed hour ... A lot of us, it was a job J1 sometimes insufficient or they had to comply with, and so we give them a huge plus.. Otherwise hotel like that is not overly no looks from the outside while the inside is very nicely arranged with a decent equipment ... hotel complex is quite large, I think there are 10 buildings, managers and supervisors were ok, the mood of the story, Howdy Doody, for socializing or when you make a mistake at work be punished no matter what you do it intentionally or not, the penalty is known and respected. It must be nonstop, but the hotel is large and it is difficult to control the 40 people in the room every day but if you are caught going home, 4 times if you get caught you're sitting / listening to music / cackle phone / not wearing appropriate clothing or sleeping on the job, lose job and accommodation that was provided to us and very polite (three in an apartment for $ 62 a week).

Comment: So, I'm in Fairbanks was 2016. It was just a lot of students in town maybe even around 300. There are plenty of hotels and restaurants where you can find another job. I have found another job at Walmart, worked the cash register for $ 12 night shift (40 hours, never less) ... Easy work, night shifts, few people come to the counter and when there is no work to go to the cash register going back edge of the shelf, low and controlled, meet more people, tourists from around the world (Irish, English, Germans, French, Spaniards, Filipinos, Chinese, Japanese), when there is work pace is very strong but when there used to be and you gonna be bored, I'm Walmart remained in good memory, although we thieves kept stealing bikes, I witnessed the arrest of the thief by police, arguing etc. but all this help you figure out what the American people and how they differ from us. Best of all, no one's forcing you to do, do all you want at your own pace. All in all extra experience, I hope to go back again and recommend to all who want and are able to go after the program I was in Vegas and New York the following few days, Vegas is nice and all, but NY is the law. I made about $ 11,000 or so-called net 17,000 gross (enough right now to tell you, because in some parts of the USA people earn barely cover costs) and there have been extreme cases where an aquaintance in Denali earned over $ 25,000 (server + busser).
