Shoreline Restaurant, Lake George, New York, Work and Travel Group
Experience with agency Work & Travel Group was neutral.
Everything was ok except price, they are quite expensive and they are committed me to buy a ticket through them which I could find a lot cheaper.
Experience with location Lake George, NY was neutral.
Tourist town, very small, but it is a lot of tourists through summer. Can be found another job, is not that difficult. As for living conditions, the nearest walmart in town (Queensbury) close to the bus that goes to work only in season (starts sometime in late June and ends in early September) out of season to be a taxi, there are also the closest McDonald's, Taco bell, Burger King and more. In Lake George has bars and places to go out there and beach but can be boring sometimes because the place is really a little bit not always to go to Queensbury's because it needs to fit in time with work and other things. There is one close to the Outlet which also go by bus and has a few good shops in Queensbury-shopping when they want to buy clothes, shoes, perfumes, and more. Leti is an exhibition of old cars and motorcycle collection that are large-scale, but which can also be interesting to see. City is 4-5 hours away from NY City, at 3.5-4 hours from Boston, 5-6 hours to Niagara Falls, etc. but only to someone who has driven a car because hardly any agency wants to rent a car because we students do not have a credit card, I personally tried several agencies that were closest to but we are not allowed anywhere. Otherwise the nature around is very beautiful but can not be without a car is nothing much to see. One can make nice when that befalls, it may happen that due to a 15000, and 2000 can all depends on the person, taxes in the state are not exactly small, but it generally returns.
Experience with employer Shoreline Restaurant
Who doesn't knows, the food runner position in which 90% of the time is spent in the kitchen. Specifically in this restaurant, my job was to add to the dish sauces that go with certain food and address those to the server. Business is not easy, because sometimes make a little crowded runner working in shifts, and plateaus with food presents the stairs so that once never before carried the plateau with food it will take some time to get used to. When there is nothing that is doing something in the kitchen all the time, cleaned up, packed out and so on. The restaurant has two large fridges (not small refrigerator than the restaurants large refrigerator-sized rooms), and also the twin (also big) in that very often comes because it is my responsibility also was unpacking things when it arrives delivery (every 2 3 days in season and more often). As far as the plate was Payments 9 $ per hour. Tip We were given so that all servers are separated by 5% of the total tip for that shift and to go runner. Now, when I'm working in shifts all the money goes to me, and when they do two or three per shift to be shared. The most I got from 40 to 50 dollars for a day and sometimes does not tip when there are no people in the restaurant. The waiters are mostly a little take the tips ie. give less than should. Business busser in this restaurant is very good because it is a very good tip is certainly a better choice because the job easier than any of the kitchen and more time earning. All in all not a bad restaurant to work, is not as difficult as it is not at all used to it after two or three weeks.
