Weekapaug Inn,Westerly, Rhode Island, Karavan Travel
Experience with agency Karavan Travel was positive.
I would commend the agent from Nis , which are constantly asking us , advise us and urged me to fast respond to e-mails :). The only criticism is the agency that what I was told to work in OH , and I worked in WI .
Experience with location Westerly, RI was positive.
Westerly is a quiet, "small " town without any entertainment. All bars are open until 1h , except in Connecticat where are working to 2h . The bike you will definitely need if you want to go to the beach , find another job , go shopping , but watch to make friends with the shuttle drivers (mini van that drives you to work ) and will take you no problem : ) ... J1 students do u live in a motel WI Ambassador . Motel has 10 rooms , all rooms have two beds , a common living room , kitchen and dining room. A second job can be found just need to be persistent and that you schedule the first work permit to work ( in my case , I have only 1 or 2 days to do another job because I worked every night WI , a third job I've found only last month ) .
Experience with employer Weekapaug Inn
Hours: 9.5 Hours per week: 40 Average tip: 300 Description Employer: Not at all, or can not accept this position unless you do not find another job. Job as a business is not difficult but you need thick nerves manager for housekeeping. The woman is unprecedented jerk who has harassed every day. No who is not crying for her. She was blackmailing me the visa, I'm not allowed to go to the break (which you use, or do they reject you), gave me one free day for every question I know the answer in advance - NOOOOOOOO !!! My shift was from the 12h, 13h, 14h, 15h, 17: 30h to 21: 30h (depending on the day), so I had different working hours every day, and when you do this kind of shift you lose a whole day. And if you mention her another job or change your shift, you're doing the morning, it is difficult for you. I have to mention that she speaks everything with a smile, even when she yelling :). All in all, the horror. All other managers and employees were really great. I could have anyone to turn to, everyone was willing to help me. General manager is a woman dragon. I really recommend this hotel because the people in it are phenomenal, normal hosts, just watch that you do not do housekeeping. Oh yes, my position ... turndown starts at 17: 30h. It comes as a refresh room, change your towels if you are hosting a shower, make bed, put some papers, candy, coasters under the time, they made things if they are scattered, bring me ice're bringing clean linens from the utility room and garage at the end of cystic same ( throwing dirty linens and ice) ... nothing strenuous. I was also room and public area attendent, or if you want information for these two positions, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All in all an unforgettable experience! Good luck! :)
