Only 39 days until we leave, i get progressively more excited everyday. I really can't wait!! Trip planning is underway, the people who got lifeguard positions are a little frustrated because it turn out their wages are much lower than expected. We were told that lifeguards make more than the other positions because they have more responsibility. When they got their info packages, their wages were lower than everyone else's. My position's wages are the highest, I'm assuming it's because we do front desk as well as hospitality concierge. At the end of the day, none of the wages are high and it's the experience that we're really going for but it still is dissapointing to think you're getting a decent wage and then find out it's lower. The lifeguard position is also not a tipped position so no extra income there. The concierge and front desk positions get tips which i'm super grateful for!! More later!!
