    Tip Three

    Dont discuss work online

    ...always be polite to Wangs and Telecrags who you will see alot of.

    Does not discussing work online include bitching about workmates?

    Hey Hey,,, I thought it would have been a NICE way to get to know each other not an opportunity to turn something into a negative opp to talk down an organisation. But thanks for the link. I guess I will meet you all on the induction day!

    Have a good one

    [​IMG] Paranoid much?

    [​IMG]


    Unfortunately they are correct Serendipity. Always err to the side of caution.

    Just rely on media and marketing for the truth. [​IMG]

    Rule #1 applies to every resort.

    Rule #4 is listen, learn, do not speak

    The rule applies to all work places IMHO

    But as for this site, don't think that your bosses aren't aware of these forums and can't figure out who each of you are

    The Duck is wise... heed the advice!

    Just remember Bob is good, Graham is bad.

    And Rocky will look after you.

    I've applied to be a snowboarding instructor at both Perisher and Thredbo, so still have to attend the hiring clinics for both. Been snowboarding for 6 years, absolutely love it.

    Can't wait, and hope to be down for the season!

    Hey guys, I’m going to be in some area of F&B. I’m making the trip over from Adelaide and will be at the Saturday 23rd training day. Anyone else driving from the West or South?

    Serendipity, You need not worry about looking “embarrassingly hopelessâ€. I’m so bad at anything physical that I even make walking look hard.
