Polar Bear Gifts, Anchorage, Alaska, Ayusa
Experience with agency AYUSA was positive.
The positive experience as pertain cooperation with the agency. Here were the answers to all my questions (and there were maybe too much: D) in the shortest period of time. I would especially commend Dusan.
Experience with location Anchorage, AK was neutral.
Now that everything is finished, I can say that it was ok, but I wouldn't go back again to Alaska. It is good as regards earnings and because you have nowhere to spend the money if your goal is to earn and return as much as possible. Alaska is not a "that America" that we all imagine and there literally do not have what to do other than to work :D All you have to see and visit can done it in a few days and to make the most of the end of June while still beautiful weather, but in mid-July has started to rain and is not stopped until the middle of September until I was there. What would I recommend and what should not be missed if you're already, there is a tour of the glacier.
Experience with employer Polar Bear Gift Shop
Experience with employers is utterly neutral. If you are lucky to work first or second shift, you'll be able to work a second job, if you stay in inter-shifts the entire season (as some) will not be able to work a second job. The work in the gift shop is not something difficult, but it is very boring. Fixed timetable, without tips.
This review represents personal opinion of Katatina Babic who was participating Work & Travel program in year of 2016 with agency AYUSA, working at Polar Bear Gift Shop in Anchorage, AK.
