Robert’s Maine Grill, Kittery, Maine, Prestige

Experience with agency Prestige Education was positive.
For the second year, I go through them, I have no complaints . They did ecerything they sad, that is the most important .

Experience with location Kittery, ME was positive.
Kittery is a very small place. There is almost nothing but a huge outlet. The only thing I really liked was a beautiful nature. A lot of woods, lots of greenery, on the ocean .. Not a place where I could live, but excellent for the work and travel. There are a lot of students, I think most of us Serbs. Additional work is easy to find. There are lots of outlets. Immediately next to the Kittery only 2-3km is the next city, Portsmouth. So that another job can there be found. The city Kittery has some association of pensioners, aka volunteers who have always helped J-1 students. They organized parties, organized a free transport students to Boston, sometimes even further. They also shared every Wednesday free food. The whole city is collecting money for the poorer part of the population, and there was we too :) We took bread, milk, eggs, meat, cosmetics, everything was given. So in essence, except the costs of accommodation, other costs do not exist. In the next city, Portsmouth you have everything else you need. Supermarkets, a cinema, a bowling alley, swimming pool, disco .. Boston is very close too an hour by bus ..

Experience with employer Robert's Maine Grill was neutral.
Wage per hour : 8,75 $ Hours per week: 70-80 Average tip : / The good and bad sides ? We will start with bad sides . The downside is the manager who never came out to meet the students . He considered that the boy and girl should not go on break at the same time , the boy and the girl may not have the same days off , which is found in all objection . Every day was moody and nervous, of course we felt the most . A good side of this is that the manager was fired at the end :) and finally everything was great.
