Ocean Properties – The Sagamore Resort, Bolton Landing, NY, AYUSA
Experience with agency AYUSA was neutral.
They were ok , not me something thrilled , though I doubt it would be that the agency was thrilled ... For the money that they took not see what I got . I wanted to go to the east coast , but by December when I signed on, almost did not get any offers . Should I go back I would definitely went the self program .
Experience with location Bolton Landing, NY was negative.
The town is very small , the main attraction is The Sagamore Resort where I worked . Other work was very hard to find since too much of people came to work in the Sagamore and all they wanted another job . There are only a couple of small restaurants , which mainly take the local teenagers . Public transport is zero , so it is impossible to find a job in another town type Lake George Village . As for night life , there is only one bar in which Lily 's mostly staring all after work and some call the club Brass Ring which occasionally has some Jamaican Party . Basically , we're hanging out and making party in Rondack - in where most of the students lived .
Experience with employer The Sagamore Resort
Hourly: 8 $ Number of hours per week: 42 Average tip: 50$ I was working dinner in the main restaurant in the resort of La Bella Vita. My shift began at 5p.m. However, while not over, and that is in season for about 11p.m. (Dinner lasts until 10p.m. but we have to wait that all guests leave and escort). The season began in July and as the bass was engaged only in August, so no need to go there in early June because there is no work. The job is not very difficult to get used to everything, even though the season was really bussy and I had to fly from one end of the restaurant on the other. It took a deal and a huge tray of dirty plates and glasses which was not easy, should the power and feeling. But after two weeks and I that in my life I did not litter tray, I got used and relaxed able to wear it without breaking anything. As for the tip, we received 10% of the server only what they had not been checked and they of course could not deprive us. Al eventually I learned when fair remuneration, when not, so I could ask of manager at the server code to be put. In August I started working and in another restaurant in the resort Club Grill, where the tip was much better, but I was in essence drew, because I did not have another job. All in all, it was worth it, I got my investments, I bought what I planned and traveled long ago what was the reason that I'm at all and went to the W&T.
