Experience with agency Experience was negative.
Every seller wants to sell your product, so the agency wants to show you in the best light program that you send to any place only that they were agents of the village. I went twice over these agencies, and clearly pointed out what I want for the second time due to previous experience, but none of that has not been fulfilled. I was looking for something that will not be far from a bigger city that has places to go out, it's not cold and to be infused with our people, it's their special underlined. The first two have met the latter does not. The Agency has spent more time on presentations and lectures about the city that I go and the Romanian agency "All Friends " with which cooperate in Ocean City that was supposed to be our very helpful during our stay in America. During the visit of people from all friends, we just showered words of praise on the Ocean City, and how will our people from these agencies to be like a family, all the fringes of our problems regarding the employer, accommodation, transportation from the airport, guides us do not know you do not I kind of trips .. the truth is transported us from the airport to our accommodation, which we have not been known to momonta when we were kicked out at 4 am in front of a house and banged on the door to people who have already been accommodated here, fulfilled that we able to come to their office and use computers as well as to supplement and to buy sim card but when it came to those wonderful trip for us there was no room .. Accommodation I got in a dilapidated house where they lived only Romanians, and later there are two of our girls of the apartment we were 8. we barely breathe, let alone the city had in the fridge or suitcases. Doors could open a toothpick, parties were not permitted, only one application for noise by neighbors, and fly from accommodation, you could later very difficult to find, because they were overbooked. Accommodation cost us a total of opportunities for the whole season around 1,500 per person, plus 200 deposit that you apparently returned, but being in the house all falling apart you do not return the entire amount even though you are not to blame for this, so that when you take a picture of all the damage come to the house that you would not be blamed for something that you are not spoiled. All in all this presentation that will guide you all the booklets and manuals that will help to grant the famous presentations are just a hoax to you municipality that place, and how do you convince right there to experience the magic of America and spend an unforgettable summer, all this is nonsense, you are cheap labor on which sponzoraska agency and agency broker earn money, unfortunately this was reduced this once wonderful and very good Progarm ..

Experience with location Ocean City, MD was negative.
Ocean City is a city that remains in some 80s 90s tad as rebuilding the rebuilding. The city is too big to get you to work on foot, unless you are some weird but great luck to live near work you get, otherwise you need to buy a bike, or to ride a bus which costs $ 3 a day. If you expect to experience American culture in this city, forget it, this city is alive only during the summer season after the summer there is no living soul, as well as greater nikendate village, it's like you went to Sutomore and expect to cultural upoznanati goods Montenegro. In this town goes middle-class Americans and Chinese. Another drawback of this city is that you store the food very far and you have to go back automusom or by bicycle (which represents one an exhibition, because you have so much time as you work to once every three weeks you can go shopping, and assume that the amount of foods should be transported on a bicycle). When most welcome will delight you long beach with beautiful yellow sand, and the vastness of the ocean where you can not swim, but only to dispose of the waves, because there constantly. Then you realize that the time on the beach there is no single source of shade, although the wind stirs the ocean the sun is so strong that it is enough for 15 minutes to be exposed to the sun whooped like a cancer, if you do not have the protective cream, then somewhere there in July with my family come children who crucify tents on the beach, one-size homes with all the refrigerators, but there's nowhere to put a towel. The ocean is cold as ice, but if you really like to swim as well as I that you would not mind, nor the murky waters of the Danube colored by the fact that in this area there are plenty of "small " sharks that we had a chance to see how people fishing bass from the shallows, but they are not dangerous :) now people who come there .. Not really all that bad, if you live in Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, and somehow you've gotten used to that type of people. If you come in late May early June, you will welcome high school students who could not wait to use your fake ID card to get drunk and take drugs (widely available), and now you if you work in a shop or alcohol as a waiter and sell alcohol underage person even though he has a very convincing ID card follows you quit .. (although there were threats and deportation). When you spend a wave churlish kids why you had to go an hour earlier to work because there is a possibility that you will not fit in the bus as much as any, followed by a wave of elderly gentlemen and the lady who came with no children at home to be well spent and getting drunk at the nearby clubs from morning to night, these people are very difficult as customers and as passengers in public transport, you will see a lot of things ... then comes the golden period mid-July, when they come of families with children, and the peak season when you will earn upwards .. bar so legend says. Now clubs to go out, do not worry there's plenty and they really are great, there are those who make the party all day and it was the best part of Ocean City, or tourists who go there, and not just so, so if you expose students to gather things you work / live and fun is guaranteed.

Experience with employer Dead Freddies was negative.
I have received a service position because I am the first, she worked as a server, or in another place. Satnica very bad $ 3.63 / h even though you say you get the tip, it was again very bad, says the timetable is the first year was 5.25, and that's ok when you add tip, 3.63 is a little .. When you sign a contract him send you lots and lots of paper, menus, folders, restaurants as well as the rules and instructions that it is better to study because you will really have a test when you come to training before starting the job. You can not expect just to be kind, provide the best possible service to the customers, but also to sell certain meals from the menu and drinks. Based on this, you will receive the number of tables and sections, as well as gain the opportunity to earn something on a tip, otherwise it will be published from 15 $ per day in tips, because your own tips to share with baser infection, a food runner and bartender, at the end, more money than you earn, as a percentage kickback account based on your daily sales and not on the basis of a tip that you get so often happens that you people do not leave, you have made their money have to give tip. In the kitchen there is a table that is published once a week with the data when it sold much, but even though you might sell the most requested "signature dish " or "signature drink " you will never be able to compete with American servers that come here to work each season. They will always have the best catchment areas (which are the most important, believe me), and the largest number of tables. Now in addition to regular serving guests, selling their "products ", have side work, which will let you become a nightmare, because not only will have to work a job that entitled each server (to clean his own area, set the tables, make do you have a stock of time, straw, equipment for children, whether you are filled with pepper, mustard, ketchup, it all goes to the beginning of the shift, the end of the shift you need to polish the knives and forks, you determine the number of "captains of " American servers, that number is usually about 100, then to clean your area; recharge time inventories, straw, props, cut 6 cans of lemon, lime, orange ... i pray god to exit least a half-1) but will do the job instead Americans, because they are all natural comrade, a US servers "captains " determines who are working, and they are under the managers who have more power to you also by daily tasks, such as what to sell today, do not rub the walls of the restaurant , removing the cigarette butts between the boards on the terrace .. (there is a book of obligations for each day of the week that have to be carried out). Now when you get used to it all and master programs for food messaging via computer, and they treat you like you're poluretardiran and coming from a country where almost withered internet and color TV, and where yesterday ended the war, the big problem is that you can not have a break to eat unless you double shifts, meal these of course is not free, you must not wear a bag to work I aprons, so that uniform for another job should be worn in your hand .. other big problem is the departure from work or completion of shifts, the first shift is from 11-4 second of 4 until all the guests turn out. I never got out of first shift pre 5 6 half Because you go out from work when they charge me all the accounts delis poor tip, you can feed all the extra work and you get a signature on a daily report by the "captain ", which will not give you the signature until all "side work " in the whole restaurant is not finished even though you finished what was your own duty, e then you can get a signature from "captain 's managers and clock-out ovati and go to another job. WHEN you fill PAPER ON ITEM YOU WANT TO ASK QUESTIONS THAT REPLACEMENT, Only record the second shift and place that you are not available for the first shift, for the first shift will not earn anything, and it's hard to find another job because all the other shifts starting from 4 hours and rarely the employer will not tolerate that you're late for work 15 minutes let alone more. Shifts are very scarce each get 20 to 26 hours a week, unless you prayed and begged for another shift possibly get one or the other servers ask you to hand over theirs. Other job try to find the Phillips crab house and rent deck chairs on the beach. All in all not worth so many money, work and aggravation. Do not go to America to forced labor, but to spend an unforgettable year, work under more normal conditions and earn some money for travel, gain an impression of how to live in America, meet new people and enjoy. There are a lot of beautiful cities of Ocean City. Definitely do not recommend this place to go to this program, or if you have already decided on something, ask to be accommodated close to our students, the best accommodation was in the 59 th Street, looking for a job to rent chairs on the beach, Feger's club, Secrets, Phillips crab house .. Go to the city, keep at least one day .. Good luck
