Camp life is a great way to save money but you have to commit yourself.
Lodge Maintenance (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 November 2015
A typical day would be reading consumables ( propane, water and sewage levels) and doing any repairs around the camp as requested. You learn how to challenge yourself and adapted to the situations. I found management does not stand behind their employee. Your co-workers become your family members while away from home and you look forward to seeing them. The hardest part is not getting the supplies you need from management because they nickel and dime you and then lie right to your face. You can be called out in the wee hours of the morning at -30 below to unthaw frozen pipes, dig through snow to fix broken sewage lines.
I found the best thing about this job is when your there at the opening of your camp right through to the closing of your camp and looking back at how well you did in keeping issues to a minimum.
Challenging, make new friends, be part of a team, good way to save money.
call out at any hour, cold, dirty, maintenance manager will lie to you, always away from home but thats YOUR choice
