Hilton hotel, Anchorage, Alaska, Work and Travel Group
Experience with agency Work & Travel Group was negative.
Primarily they have chosen the job that was my last wish, but no matter , I agreed , those who first reported through them they get worse position , and those who go through them a few years they get better. Next bad thing was that we were committed to buy a plane ticket through them , which came out $ 300 more expensive than those which were purchased through other agencies and they put us in an apartment that had a rat also was a 45min bike from work which is in Anchorage quite far away for that.
Experience with location Anchorage, AK was positive.
Anchorage is a beautiful city , large , city center is small , the center is not interesting, has one shopping mall , but not something interesting. The city is quiet and peaceful , not too exciting . As for all the aditional work everybody had it but me :) I did not even seek for it because of overtime on the first job.
Experience with employer Hilton
Wage per hour : 12 $ / 18 $ Number of hours per week : minimum 40 Average tip : / The job was initially very difficult , everybody wanted to leave in the first month , is painstaking , they have high demands , but later you get used to it , where you can learn goofing around , so the job becomes pretty easy. Overtime has more than enough . Since I did not have another job I stayed a day from 10 to 14 hours in the hotel . The timetable is $ 12, while all over 40h per week is 18 $ . According to the schedule to give 5 working days , but always , ALWAYS , called these extra 2 days to work. By September , it was so in September is already the end of the season so there is no work and then send employees home early . Also there is a lot of tips for those working in the morning shift.
