Continental Pools, Annapolis, Maryland, Work Abroad
Experience with agency Work Abroad was positive.
Regarding the agencies have only words of praise. First of all I want to emphasize professionalism Dusan Stojanovic . Fast and short , yet complete and concise answers, the quality of communication with this guy . Its availability from the moment of registration in the program to return to Serbia is a story in itself . Most I mean sincerity of his words and complete openness in which I presented the program is absolutely real and without the instant of exaggeration ! And during the program , the level of communication with his hand was on the same or even higher level . In a word any professional you will rarely find in Serbia ( Works as an American ! : D ) !
Experience with location Annapolis, MD was positive.
Annapolis is a small and family-oriented place. Still has its own story and specialty once briefly was the capital. Here in the center you will find small building typical of American history from the earliest period of the Freemasons, and around the center of the family home with auto driveways and lawns as well as from the films. Especially interesting are those millions more houses along the coast, with a private dock in the back yard where they parked the beautiful specimens of vessels, from yachts to sailboats. Nightlife is satisfactory, however Annapolis is indeed primarily a quiet and family place! In the center you can find bars that are more or less retained unchanged appearance since their inception to the present. I would single out the most interesting Pussers whose bar is literally on the dock, and Rams Head Tavern where you can enjoy a good draft beer and practical Celtic atmosphere. Also in Annapolis is the United States Naval Academy, a university city, again as from the films which do not fall behind the Ivy League. So you'll be in town during the night is not rare to see young students (and pretty stuentkinje xD) walking around in white uniforms (some might get lucky!: P). Connections with DC-om is poor, or there must be sick of it several times, but the one-way trip takes up to an hour, but My friend posduje auto me this is not a problem. In the center of the restaurant you can taste interesting and high quality seafood from the nearby port. Extra work is not hard to find, because it is a rich city of Annapolis I would say, as it the most wealthy Americans who live mostly working for the government. However, although additional work is not hard to find, it is difficult to reconcile with the primary job of rescuers, but who does not mind working part time or night shift, go ahead will be easy to find a job and be nice to earn. My second job was the work of the Japanese cuisine restaurant Katana, the same I usually handing out flyers, but I worked to assist in the kitchen, washing dishes and cleaning. Hours 10 dollars. The boss and manager Steve Katana's a great guy, and I love all the jobs in the restaurant, look for it and personally ask for a job, help him always needed! I was busing tables from the parking to the parking lot when I was handing out flyers at every break and we bring a new ice water to freshen trčaranja from the sun. Is preparing great meals gratis when I worked as an aid in the restaurant (Sushi is excellent!). So, well, you're welcome, I'm glad that I have found another job. ;): P
Experience with employer Continental Pools
Hours : Regular time: 7.25 $ . Over time: 10,875 $ Number of hours per week : 58 Average tip : A single tip was checked at the end of the season from 100 $ from a family with two beautiful children who regularly visited the pool throughout the year. When you come to work primarily for inclocking (who understands will understand)! ;) Then comes the opening of the pool, check the pump, and the levels of chemicals in water and, if necessary, adding them. Cleaning the pool surface and depth. Cleaning toilets and dressing room. Littering. Setting board for registration and check-out guests. Opening the gates. To all this got to do the job you need to come earlier, and this time you also paid. After opening routine, the job boils down to a classic guarding, and checking levels of chemicals in the water every hour. When a guest is no, then you are on holiday, sunbathing and swimming to the full! After the end of the shift, closing routine is more or less the same as the opening routine, which does not do evening awaits you in the morning, so ... Earnings were 7.25 usd the first 40 working hours per week and every hour over the 40 th payable 10,875 usd to the end of the seventh day, and then it starts from the beginning. As for the number of hours, it was Sunday when I had barely 42h, but it was Sunday when I was over 73h, so my average for each week of the season at the end amounted to 58h. Salary is paid on two weeks and the same is dismissed accommodation which is on a daily basis was 14 usd. When the same company in question, again nothing but praise! Vice President Nick Terrebrood is a remarkable man. Works like a machine! And, if necessary, climbs into the chair Lifeguard personally! For him to each of our employer could see. When you see how people here do understand why they are where they are, and we are where we are. What I would point out first of all and that is related to this company is the fact that everyone here is busy doing it from the bottom . Of course, not everything is so rosy and shiny. And here, as in every other What I would point out first of all and that is related to this company is the fact that everyone here is busy doing it from the bottom . Of course, not everything is so rosy and shiny. And here, as in every other institution that is growing and developing at this pace , there are problems , but certainly not like those you encounter when you are doing something at home in Serbia. To be honest at this agency , this job and this company, will appeal only to people who have never nothing tablespoons weight raised , ie . who never did nothing in my life before this job , so spoiled and bored nothing to do and to have someone to do more and wages. The second type of people who can appeal to those who live under the illusion that in America to get rich in less than three months. If you do not belong to one of these two groups , surely awaits an unforgettable year! New friends , new adventures , and after expiry of the contract a great trip ! ; ) that is growing and developing at this pace , there are problems , but certainly not like those you encounter when you are doing something at home in Serbia.
