PIB Ventures DBA Mossbacks, Put in Bay, Karavan Travel
Experience with agency Karavan Travel was positive.
All were done as is expected, I am satisfied and I go over them again .
Experience with location Put In Bay, OH was positive.
Residents-very pleasant and sociable (the island is very small, we all know each other and it is very safe) Climate-if you do not like the tropics and the heat this is the right place for you, around 26-28C moderate throughout the year, I felt 3 times that it was hot to me. Nightlife-chaos on Fridays and Saturdays, during the week a little less, because this is a weekend party island, but if you are not 21 years old you will miss a lot, but then again you will not spend a lot of money on alcoholic drinks in clubs, which are too expensive. Getting food is a problem for all students, because the price of food on the island is very high, so most students go once a month, month and a half on land to Walmart and buy up the mountain of food. Of course you needs to pay for the ferry and taxi so they pulle out a little more money. Most of the students on the island comes from Bulgaria so that the atmosphere on the island is "Balkan". There is also a Bulgarian disco which organizes weekly Balkan partys. Employer provided bike, with whom I went to work. The island is small so that the bike is quite enough to move around the island. There is no anu busses. Another job - if you come to the island before June you will have a better chance of finding another job. It all depends on how much luck you have and how persistent you are in search for additional work. All in all a wonderful and memorable experience.
Experience with employer Mossbacks
Wage per hour 8.10 $ Hours per week: 40-55 Average tip (weekly ): 0 The team at the restaurant was great , which is a factor that makes it easier. Cooking and helping the chefs in preparing food and maintaining the level of hygiene in the kitchen are the main tasks . Job is nothing too hard, we had a feminine kitchen helper during the summer so that it was no problem for them to finish the job without problems. At the end of August a chirstmas party was organized by the employer for employees in the restaurant. They also took us to the cedar point ( roller coaster park) so that before the end of the year employer dropped fair , although we did not get any bonuses for the end of the season. We had a free meal after a double shift at the restaurant (2-3 times per week) .
