Ever tried being on early shift when one or more "roomies/strangers" come home pissed at 3am, with company and start some grunting and sweating.

We think we offer a good deal, and some do understand that, but others treat it like a place to trash & not fix the damage..... This is whay many businesses no longer provide staff accom - it's just not worth it, you can go backwards very easily. Most places at Hotham will only hire you now if you already have accom......
In all due respect I think any instructor working for free undermines the principles and conditions faced by all instructors - especially the serious professional ones who face fairly difficult working circumstances in Australia. There are also indemnity issues, OH&S, etc ...fallscreek_hotham said:gday guys,
thinking of heading up and working for the ski school (ski instructor) on school holis and weekends (plus a little extra here and there) All i want out of it is a season pass and a level 1 cert.
is that realistic to expect?
also can i get staff accom for the weekends?
and what would i expect to be paid as an un qualified instructor?
note im not in it to make money..im aware of the use and abuse policy of resorts.
