This serving position was Seasonal. It had a beautiful beginning, and a memorable ending (Dinner & Wine) It was a good time, for the most part. A sweet emotion, free of long term commitment!
No pressure, no diamonds though!
Truth is, every seasonal job has it’s challenges, especially in a remote National Park. This was a full time position, with options of overtime. July & Aug were peak months. Not everyone was experienced, but as an amateur your given the chance to learn and grow. Every years been a little different. By the last month, your really thankful that as a team, you all made it through together. As a Server, you rely on the kitchen A LOT. They’re the backbone of the establishment; and probably not given enough tribute at times. Chef was always very resilient.
The tour groups were mostly Americans. I remember being surprised by the culture in the dining room.
Living accomodations can be challenging as well. If it’s your first time away from home, your gonna be paying out of pocket, and living with people who are strangers to you. Laundry was extra, the meal plan was the most economical option. There was a Shuttle provided for free if you needed to use the Walmart or the Co-op. By May long weekend most things were available in the village.
Would I work for Bayshore Resort again?
Down to earth friends, Cash injection BONUS!
Heavy lifting, picking up the slack. Not always a strong motivated team.
