#1  Experience Club Med?  8 Dec '05 at 17:40
Hi,

I was curious if somebody had any experience with working at Club Med.
I applied for barmaid.
I can call them tomorrow, curious what they will say!
Due to circumstances, I just started to look for a job. Hope I can find something!

Thanks!
Bonny

barmaid? club med?

did you include photos in your application? if yes, and they told you to ring 'em, you'll be hired. Congrats on those fab t*** !

(sincerely: it'll be fun if you're into some hanky-panky with the guests. how's that huh!)

What?!

That doesn't sound too good
No, didn't include a photo, so I know for now it's not that.
But is that their reputation?

did one season with 'em in sankt moritz (posherly posh swiss resort, but great skiing) and it kinda loomed in the eyes of the lurking 40-50 yr old female clientes we had... but it can be the fatal attraction of the overly attractive ski instructors we were, of course

But besides all the attention of the 40 yr olds, you had a great season?
Club Med didn't let you work for 80 hours for not enough money?

well, i dunno about the bartenders.. was there as a skiing instructor and they did TRY to get us to do "entertainment" in the evening. the main reason why the "season" became a "almost season" and i walked away at beginning of March.. salary was ok though, better than any other cy i checked that year. On the other hand, i earn *truckloads* more money now being an official instructor..

Belgian vince: Who do you have a qualification with, and what level is it to?

I've got a Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance Level 2 and have been wondering about trying to get work somewhere in Europe, but to get an ISIA certification I'd need to get level 3 (challenge for next season!) Just wondering if you had any experience of CSIA qualifications.

Cheers

Iain

I ate in Club Meds buffet in Les Arcs once. It was okay. Not really sure this helps much, but heck I just finished my first transfer day of the season and feel like commenting

Post time is 5am GMT, which makes Winter Park about 7 hours behind (MST), which makes a transfer day finish of 10pm. Not too bad! But I'll lay good money you'll have much worse to come

@ AK: dunno about CSIA qualifications, but indeed, the alpine countries (italy, austria, switzerland and CERTAINLY france) will require you to have the highest national level first and then allow you to "upgrade" it to one of their national qualifications.

one easy way to bypass this is to get into a level-1 national instructor course in one of those countries, may seem as a waste of time and money but that's how i did it. I had Belgian Level-2 (ánd recognized by ISIA and IVSI) but re-did my Anwärter in South Tyrol (Italy) followed up by Landesskilehrer last year.

I guess that with your own qualification, you could also get a job in either a club or a local ski school but from my experience, the ski school will put you in the Kindergarten for pretty much the entire season

Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.
