How much do you make as a park digger?
minimum wage here plus maybe an extra dollar or two for sticking around a few years
Yeah it's usually right around minimum wage. As the guy said above you may see a small increase in wage depending how long you stick around.
Free season pass & proform deals are a big plus though.
low 6 figures, 401k/403b contribution match, full dental and health benefits, hazard pay, death/auto/home insurance, HRA/FSA, EAP on-call.
Minimum wage and little more $$ when driving the snowcat, here in Quebec canada
Definitely enough to start looking into investments like you can either play McDonald’s monopoly or buy 6 sub sandwiches and get the 7th for free
Really a lot of choices when you rake in that park staff mulaaa
Enough to get by on a dirtbags lifestyle.
It's kind of a shitty policy. On the one hand I get keeping the wages down and knowing that you'll have applicants for those jobs when people leave.On the other side it's one of the reasons a lot of people only stick around for a year or two. Good workers find better jobs, and there are plenty of noobs who couldn't spork a takeoff halfway rideable to save their lives.
It's frustrating when I go places and want to take a few park laps and it's very clear that the park crew doesn't give a fuck, are complete idiots, or both.
Also OP. It's a decent gig to do for a bit if you're interested. Honestly if you can shovel or rake with complaining all the time, and have some concept of what park features should look like, you're probably off to a better start than a good percent of day crew guys.
