Agency Experience: Positive
The agency gives its best to provide the students with everything they need. Everyone who works there has previously participated in the program.
Location: Wildwood, NJ
Location Experience: Positive
Wildwood is a “heaven on Earth”, which is why lots of tourists and J1 students go there. What I like the most about Wildwood is how calm the place is and the fact that the local people have been so nice and unbiased to us. I also had a second job. Generally, it’s easier to find a morning job, since there are plenty of hotels and motels in the city.
Employer: Urie's Waterfront Restaurant
Employer Experience: Positive
Urie’s is one big family. People working there have been part of it for years now. And working there means that you also become a member of “the family”. Urie’s is one of the best restaurants and sometimes people, who come to have a meal there, have to wait for two hours “to be seated.” You have to be a team player in the restaurant, otherwise things just won’t work out well.
