The Inn At Tomichi Village, Gunnison, Colorado, Ideas

Experience with agency Ideas was positive.
Absolutely satisfied with the agency , from the very beginning and the signing of the first contract until the end of the program

Experience with location Gunnison, CO was positive.
Gunnsion is a small city in the southwest part of Colorado , at 2350m above sea level. It has 5,000 inhabitants , although at the end of August college starts so we hope that there will be more students. Considering that it is a very small town , there is no public transport or taxi. Very good thing is safe ride which operates on Wednesdays , Fridays and Saturdays. Go to a party , get drunk and call safe ride to take you home, free of charge. Another job, we could find very easily considering that almost everybody during July and August here were asking for help . Also, in 40min drive is the Crested Butte , very popular and snazzy mountain town . At least you can expect here is $ 10 / hr.

Experience with employer The Inn At Tomichi Village was positive.
Wage per hour: 10 $ / h Number of hours per week : 50+ Average tip (weekly ) : Housekeeping is the only work I was doing from day one. Begin the morning at 9 and usually ends in 1, so if you have more rooms, more people is working . At the beginning we had training , learned how to make the bed and they all need to be done in the room after leaving or remaining guests. After 10 days you can turn off the brain and mechanically do everything. Guests often leave tips , $ 1- $ 5, sometimes more , which when divided to all those who are working that day is from $ 3- $ 5 daily . Enough for beer. Another very important thing is that our quarters are on the same possession as hotel and restaurant are, so there was no need for any trip . Also , the same accommodation is free.
