Working at Windells
I mailed in an application to windells last week or so, and have been so stoked about the thought of possibly working there this summer that I had to make a thread.
I applied to the kitchen staff, I was a former camper, I have experience in a kitchen, and im a college student etc etc. Basically im just wondering if anyone has applied and gotten a job at windells through an application alone. I can imagine they get tons of applications, so are the chances of getting a job there slim to none? Do you basically need a connection to get in?
looking for some reassurance, id be the happiest person alive if I got to spend the summer out there

how often would one typically ski if they worked there? (not as a coach)
When I went, I crapped once for the whole week. I hope you know how to cook, because they really need someone that can. No one can survive on only cereal and grilled cheese.
great question. the website says they pay for your tickets to timberline and obviously you can hit windells park, but I wonder how often it would be
you get to ride everyday all summer, unless your specific job requires you to be at camp on arrival and departure days...also depends on if they are buying you day tickets or a summer pass, obviously if you have a pass then you can ski t-line on days off in between sessions. My experience was that to get hired you need to know someone on the inside...
It's symbolizes what I feel. I'm at war with the haters.
sounds pretty sick
I highly doubt this. Starting kitchen pay is probably minimum wage, which is like $8/hr in Oregon. But if you're doing this kind of thing to make bank, then you're doing it for the wrong reasons. You get paid little, but you accept it because of all the other perks, like free food and housing and the ability to ski in the summer. I make well below min wage, but I consider myself rich, because I have the opportunity to experience a lifestyle that is the best fucking thing in the world.
In regards to the original question, being a camper and having previous kitchen experience will probably help you a lot, but knowing someone on the inside is often better. People running these places don't want sketchy people around the kids, so being a known quantity is an advantage.
Plus it's just like any job. Keep contacting them and show your enthusiasm. People who want the job are more likely to put in the work to keep it.
