Ocean House, Westerly, Rhode Island, Karavan Travel

Experience with agency Karavan Travel was positive.
I went through the agency Karavan Travel and I must admit that helped me a lot to find a good work offer. Special thanks go to Desire from the agency in Banja Luka, which is a great job with her . Of great help and advice can be people who have already been in where you go , so after receiving an offer of employment certainly try to contact students who have already been there .

Experience with location Westerly, RI was positive.
Westerly is a very small town , but also very nice . Who loves nature , walks and chilling on the beach certainly will not regret it. Night life is not high , only a few clubs on the beach who usually work up to 1 hour after midnight . A good time is certainly not absent because the rules are mainly parties and fooling around in the motel where we lived . In essence it is all up to you , if I manage will not be bored. In addition, the motel was a few hundred meters from the beach , so we have free time during the day mostly spent there. The possibility of finding another job is large, so that all those who wanted to , find another job. The climate is similar to ours , temperatures go up to 35 degrees, but it was also a large number of rainy days in a seaside town . I had a very good experience with the locals , always ready to help , very polite and cultured world .

Experience with employer Ocean House was positive.
Hours 8 $ + tips Hours per week: 32-38 Average tip: $ 100 per week You will have a few days training where they will explain to you what to do and what they expect from you. Work starts very early, around 7 am in the morning and ends about 3 pm. Most of the work is between 7 and 11, when preparing the whole beach and the Dune Cottage for guests. Your job is to set umbrellas, beach chairs, open, clean the deck, tables and bring all the necessary things for the day. (Ice, towels, food, etc.). After that, usually followed by a break of half an hour, after which help the servers, collect dirty towels and trash from the beach. Work can be very physically demanding because the nose heavy things and you're constantly in the sun. It takes a solid knowledge of the English language because you will be in constant contact with guests, they will ask and ask you anything. The good side of the business that you work outdoors, the job is not monotonous, there is always something going on, and in the end you will spend 3 months in the ocean and watch the pretty girls on the beach. :)
