Today I had an online interview for a tour job based 1 mile outside of Denali. I thought it was a 3 month job as that what was on the website. Before the phone call I was thinking what questions I wanted to ask. If I took the job, I would miss my daughters high school graduation and wouldn't be able to take her to college for the first time. Her choice school is Vanderbilt in TN.
Before we could get into the money part, the interviewer said I fit the job with my past experience but the dates on the website were wrong. It would be April 8 to October mid month. I just cant be away for that long at this time.
For $15 a day, you share a room with someone and get 3 meals at any of the 3 resorts.  The company has a contract with Holland American and Princess Cruise lines.

Wow, that could be a good retirement gig.
Once the kids are in college. I'm sure they have openings every year.

Now is the vanderbuilt extension in Nashville?
If so we'll have to get together, I'm only 1hr from down town.

I don't know where it is. My wife and daughter visited the college while I worked on the house in the summer.

I wonder how long the work day is and how long the work week is. Assuming a cruise ship is outside territorial waters, they probably get to make up their own labor rules. Looks like there are scammers promising jobs only to collect fees. It could be fun as long as you don't get norovirus or get in the middle of a drunken brawl. Maybe they have a gentleman's escort service for those wealthy lonely women. Smile

Work day is 9 - 11 hours. You can be sent to Fairbanks which is an overnight trip. They have drivers that work all 3 shifts, run a 24 hour employee shuttle. 3 months yes, six months no.

They hire a lot of people. I was the first interview. I was told on Tuesday that interviews will last until next Wednesday. That is only for drivers.

Be a good gig to get away but with kids 6 months is an awful long time.

I can see if I miss either my daughters high school graduation, or taking her to college but not both. She did an early application for Vanderbilt so I would have to pack my truck and take her. It's a no win situation for me.

That's pretty cool! I am currently looking for a new job. I am considering going on the road, but I don't think my mom could handle it. I went away for a week and by the second day she was asking when I was getting home.

While I was away in Georgia this week, they called my house asking if I was still interested. If they shorten the 6 months down to 3 months I will do it.
