Well its not as if I have not been hunting for work in this town. According to all the employers here there is "Not enough staff for the jobs available" ... bullshit! I have been around a lot of places these last four weeks looking for work, and most said come back nearer the start of the season.. did that and still nothing!! I have applied to be a bouncer (The man didn't even call me back, and then i broke my arm!!), a Bartender (there was 50 applicants at the open interview), a carwasher (didn't bother calling me back, I put down on the App form that I didn't want to work days!!oops), a garage customer assistant for two different multi-nationals (no response as of yet from them), an Assistant Housekeeper (second in charge of 15 cleaners!! good interview, but I wasn't in NZ long enough for the job!), a Computer Technician (had a very positive interview and awaiting a response) but the best thing so far is a Waiter / Barman. I have heard back from the Manager and he is just needing to speak to the Restaurant Manager before he will offer me the job... fingers crossed... heres the lowdown on the Hotel >>>
Situated only 4 kilometres from the town centre, XXXX XXXX Hotel Queenstown is just 3 kilometres away from the airport (and 250m away from where I live!!). XXXX XXXX has 78 units set in a colonial gold-mining village atmosphere, overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables Mountain Range. All rooms feature a television, heater, tea and coffee maker and many more. Guests can dine in the restaurant that is open for breakfast and evening dining, or enjoy a quiet drink by a roaring fire in the bar. You can also unwind by the outdoor swimming pool in summer or relax in the spa and sauna. Conference facilities for up to 50 persons are also available on site.
Well I will let everyone know how my Waiter / Barman and Computer Tech positions go soon... speak soon!
