I've received an email from Thredbo, they've given me a start date, being the 6th of June. Nice and early!
I have not worked at thredbo, or at the snow before, but I've worked at a bar for the past 3 years and I agreed to driving the 'troop' bus, for other bar staff, up to Thredbo and back, at the beginning and end of shifts.
This gives me some extra pay, saves myself on petrol and KMS on my car, and I'd have been driving anyway, perhaps! So I agreed, and Nick (a manager), said this would get me there earlier in the season, and it seems it has; as many staff don't start until the 17th of June, I believe.
I believe I am working at the 'Hotel'. Whether that is an official name for the place, or I've just assumed wrongly, I don't know.
Haha, can't wait!
Yes and I already had bought an early-bird season pass last year! Before I had decided on working at Thredbo. I wonder if I can get a refund or something; perhaps transfer it to a friend, if not, that's a fair whack of money down the drain :(
The penalty rates will be excellent. Despite working in the hospitality industry for 3 years, while studying and such, I haven't received penalty rates, yet. this is due to some BS 'rewards agreement'... Oh well, I guess!
Yes, tips should hopefully be plentiful
Edit, Holy crap Ozgirl, I love your profile picture. haha. Is that mean, that I like it!? haha.
