Experience with location Deadwood, SD was positive.
South Dakota is beautiful! Small tourist town (Deadwood, Sturgis, Wall) in the center of Lakota American-Indian beautiful culture, beautiful nature. Another job can be easily found. In August, pay particular attention to Sturges (Sturgis) festival! I'm supposed to be primarily in the Wall, but I was at the airport when they greeted me and told me that I am going to Deadwood, that was not so far from the Wall. They kept changing working hours and I could for the first month to find another job because of it. They called me from the State Department to verify that everything is in order. The first two weeks of August, we were in Sturges, which is really cool place, much bacchanalies "to see once in a lifetime," and then I was transferred after 3 days in Wall. Now, Wall is the smallest town of the three mentioned, but we were there very much, because I have made many friends, Americans, a lot of wonderful friends, found another little job in a restaurant, and I would eventually like to go back there, because the Badlands National park that is next to the Wall - breathtaking! <3
Experience with employer Pandora's Box
Wage per hour: 8.5 Hours per week: 36 Average tip: Description Employer: Employer owns 3 stores of colorful names at 3 locations in places Wall, Deadwood, and during the Sturges fest , Sturges work for 2 weeks. The working position is meant refilling operations, cleaning, charging customers, etc., For a time of terrible Sturges festival in August, we worked more, but it was worth it because we saw on the streets absolutely everything - and what should and what should not (this will not detail , google , you will understand: D). It is interesting because a lot of people come during the season, so it is possible to meet everyone. Especially when Indians ran into it with all the costumes, it's priceless =) I have not received paychecks like everyone else, but cash on hands. They were counting on me 6 hours 6 days a week, and during the festival Sturges 12, 13 hours. Since the end of August to the end of September I worked 8 to 10 hours because they had no one else besides me there. In the end I had no proof of what I did, so I had trouble with tax return. Boss gave me to run the store alone for a month while they were in Florida! : D
