Dairy Queen/ Jolly Roger Water Park, Ocean City, Maryland, Ideas
Experience with agency Ideas was positive.
I am very satisfied with the agency, even though I checked in at the last minute so to speak (end of April) have tried to find me a job very quickly and get things in order so that I could travel by the end of May. Also were patient to answer to my billion stupid questions, which many agencies were not willing to do. In certain than I got the answer, you pay then we can talk. If I may say a big thank Daniel and Mary :)
Experience with location Ocean City, MD was positive.
The reason why I chose the OC, so let's tell it was a fate ? My intention was not to earn millions as the story that students in some places earn, I just wanted to see how looks life in America. Although realistically suspicion that I earned was not small. The city is beautiful, with a beautiful long beach. Summer is very hot and humidity is high, the only thing it was hard to get used to. A well-organized public transport. Plenty of places to go. The only drawback of all clubs work to 2am. The work is relatively easy to find, if you are persistent enough.
Experience with employer Dairy Queen
Dairy Queen - My primary job, that is. business with whom I come from Serbia. Eating unlimited amounts of ice cream as long as you do not get sick. A ? breaks eating receive orders, billing, making shakes, smoothies-yes, ice cream, etc. I think the hourly rate was $ 8.25. Tips of 5 to 30 $ per shift. 40 - 60 h per week. In the beginning I had a lot of problems with the manager for stealing hours, but later when I began to write down and keep a record was all ok. Jolly Roger Water Park - one where you pay to sunbathe and waltz in a bathing ? Essentially position at the beginning ie. on the top of water slide, measuring children's height, weight, showing how to sit in a tire, pushing thick American children. It was a job that I have worked for almost a year, or the greater part, just because it is easy, without any thinking. $ 8.25 without a tip of course :) A large number of hours, if you want to work. But in some cases the money is not important, because the people I met while working there have made me to be essentially no more job satisfaction and fun. Some of the work I have been doing some pizza places, a restaurant in the hotel ... there were so many, and I changed a lot of them, just as he says I was so able :) The reason that neutral experience, because I had both positive and negative experiences, this among a score.
