Lagoon amusment park, FARMINGTON, UTAH, AYUSA
Experience with agency AYUSA was positive.
Always available and honest.
Experience with location Farmington, UT was neutral.
At the airport you have a shuttle that can take you to the accommodation for $ 20. The employer each year has seasonal workers that are accommodated in Layton, which is 20min bus ride from Farmington where the park is. Over the summer most work and travel people live there, the rest are Americans who are completely irrelevant here, you can only see them at night. Utah is normally full of Mormons so nothing works after 9.10PM. Across the place where you live are placed a huge mall, gym, Dollar shop (that we bought plates forks other necessities sometimes food) 10 minutes on foot is market at Target, Ross outlet at 20 minutes from you is Wallmart, it is the least expensive and works non stop . Accommodation is large has 2.3 rooms and 6 beds. Please bring bedding and a blanket or you will buy there it is not expensive. They are looking to put 6 people everywhere.. but it doesn't matter how much of you is there each pays $ 75 a week. There were around 30 people from the Balkans, of which about 20 Serbs ... plus some Bulgarians, Ukrainians, few Thais, Poles and Turks around 30: D but we all got along great and made party: D. By the Wallmart is nearest city bus station, 2.5 $ is a ticket that last for 3 hours and you know you have to have the exact amount, because the change is not coming back. you need about 20 min to Laguna, and about an hour to Salt Lake (which is so small that it can be circled in one day) :) most of us at t-mobile took a kredit for a month, which is $ 30 .. other prices are generally like ours as regards food :) clothes and shoes is a lot cheaper and especially when you capture sales that are frequent :) Rent a car was cheap and every day you can go around Utah because it has beautiful nature so who loves ..
Experience with employer Lagoon Amusement Park
Wage per hour 7.5 $ Number of hours per week: 70 Average tip: / The good thing is because you have a bus that comes every morning at a specific time to Layton and drive you to the Lagoon, in the beginning you have a couple of days training and will receive their cards where you can buy food and souvenirs in the park, it is very simple, I was just literally asking people do they have ticket, let them to enter and check the belts and that's it: D In some serious rides literally just looking for tickets while more experienced do the rest. There I was in the area for children and there everything was my duty, and I had to see if they are tall enough for the ride, and to explain to them how to use it at work, etc ... has a canteen where you can eat but I do not like those burgers so I cook at home. All in all, at the beginning of the season you only know little rides so only those you can do. After I learned a few more, and whenever I had a shift, I went to these rides to ask the people who work whether they want to change them (Americans were mostly always wanted to go home so I worked every day all day) At the end of the season they give you a bonus (a dollar for every hour that you have done, and I had a little over eight hundred hours for exactly three months). That's all you get, since the seasonal job does not pay you overtime and no tip ... I took the time to write all that I remember: D
