Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, Talkeetna, Aljaska, Work and Travel Group
Experience with agency Work & Travel Group was positive.
They have been disorganized litle bit at the beginning but after that everything was fine
Experience with location Talkeetna, AK was positive.
As for the place itself it is very small and boring. Talkeetna is a village with one street where only rich old men come . Very rarely you can see the younger people . It's very boring and you work a lot. I found another job the next day and immediately began to work . Very good pay and provide easily over time . Time is like with us in the mountains . In September , it was very cold so plan to bring winter jackets :)
Experience with employer Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge
Wage per hour : 8.75 in the first 14 on the second Number of hours per week : 40 in the first , 40-50 in another Average tip : about $ 10 on another job Good things were , that the accommodation was excellent and very inexpensive consideing that an ordinary cabin ( small house , 1 bed, 1 room , bathroom that you share with other people in the camp ), 500 $ per month and accommodation for employees that provides hotel is 170 $ . The bad thing is that they are large corporations with few hotels and they keep an eye on every dollar . Very rarely allow the overtime ( because the laundry does not make a lot of money for the hotel) . A lot of work for little money ... Another job is easy to find and are well paid . I started as a prep cock and after 15 days upgraded to a line cock which is paid very good. If you ever go to this place I suggest " Kahiltna bistro "
