Vanderbil Grace Hotel, Newport, RI, AYUSA
Experience with agency AYUSA was positive.
I'm pretty satisfied with the agency, all they said, they complied with, always ready to answer all your questions, you will have a lot of them , especially if you are traveling first time and alone like I did :) i had a very good offer for business, warmly recommend it to everyone.
Experience with location Newport, RI was positive.
A little town with a million bars and restaurants, where you'll be better for the first time in the USA in :) The good thing about Newport is that there is a very big chance to find extra work in particular related to catering, servers, housekeeper, and the city can not say more less bourgeois so the earn was very good. On one side of town is beach, on other are yacht tricked into bars on all sides, all in all beautiful! As for shopping there is something like a shopping center nearby where you can find really cheap stuff, I bought a suitcase full of new cloth :) From major cities to Boston's hour and a half by car, so it is always a good option to go shopping and there in a along the way and visit the city that is in my opinion one of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen in America. The downside is that accommodation is quite expensive, but if you try, and here you can very well pass. I met my roommates in the hotel where I worked, the five of us lived in a three-room apartment, paid $ 240 per month, which is an understatement for nothing compared to how much earning ...
Experience with employer Vanderbil Grace Hotel
Hours : 6.75 Hours per week: 35-40 Average tip : 250-400 a week I've served breakfast and lunch , so we shift lasted from 6-8 pm in July and August when the season sometimes up to 10h . In the beginning, before I used to speak fluent English and learned by heart considers mainly the job boils down to setting up the tables , harboring dirty dishes , polishing time , etc. mainly includes everything backserving . Later, the job does not differ much from the work they do - servers taking orders , chat with guests , room service ... honestly quite hard work because the hotel the whole year was really crowded , but worth it ... In addition, I had a very good team , which I think is very important in order not to izdeprimirali at the outset : D
