High Sierra pools, Washington, DC, Ayusa
Experience with agency AYUSA was positive.
Great experience with the agency from the beginning to the end of the program. They are very professional, but at the same time very friendly, they try (or are simply good at it: D) to remember the names of the participants of the program, introduce them despite the professional, have a friendly attitude. Preparing for an interview with the employer at the embassy, and I go to the USA are well designed and very helpful, especially for students who for the first time participate in the program. Another big plus (for me) is that they do not compel students to them over the piles of flights, but certainly advise shopping around. Real are when they talk about the possible result and situations that are waiting for you at work. I noticed, too, that this year the pass rate of students from the agency on the sighting was quite large and I believe it has to do with reputation and tradition that the agency has. Especially, I pointed out that we during some potentially problematic situation in America Marko and Dusan courtesy, although the situation was not even their responsibility, nor were they required to help us, but they are really misplaced it all goes right, as later i was. Excellent communication and support during the lifetime of the program. :) Really all praise (I sound like an advertisement, Hahahaha)
Experience with location Washington, DC was positive.
Washington is a beautiful city that has a lot to offer, both in terms of finding another job, and from the tourist point of view. Every day can be used in a thousand ways, tours of the museum (admission is usually free of charge), monuments, going on a trip to the nearby cities on the ocean ... good metro connections, is easily reached from city to city, the architecture is beautiful, has a great places to go out :) As for the chances of another job, and there are plenty of options and anyone who had a desire to find another job, he managed that without much trouble :)
Experience with employer High Sierra Pools
Large and well-organized company with many employees. Checks are always and without exception, arriving on time, supervisors were mostly excellent, the job is fairly lightweight (bad side is that it can be sooo bored and I struggled to fall asleep in a chair: D). The biggest plus of this company are activities organized for employees (trip to Ocean city, going to the games, sports tournaments ....), which makes the job easier and allows you to meet with a large number of people (and this is for me one of the greatest values of this program).
This review represents personal opinion of Marina Miloradović who was participating Work & Travel program in year of 2016 with agency AYUSA, working at High Sierra Pools in Washington, DC.
