Archive for the tag “seasonal jobs”

again with the spring time in Alaska

The days are over 16 hours long, the sun is out, temperatures are above freezing at night and the seasonal work is upon us!  Right now I’m holding on to 3 jobs but one will be going away soon.  The soon to be extinct job is for the catering service, “Groovy Girls”, for Chilkat Guides.  I’m trying to get the new manager up to speed… she’s a mom so she won’t listen to this non mom person.  I know, not all moms are like that but L. thinks I have no credibility because I haven’t spawned.  What ever, if she doesn’t hear me tell her what we learned about the wheel that is g.g. she can reinvent it all she wants.

CDL training for Alaska Nature Tours is the second job, it’s humming along… if we keep the boss on track.  He tends to wander off in a haze of former workers and ancient colleagues.  A good guy though, it will be good working for him.  Today, with luck we get to drive the busses after another practice walk around.  To get a commercial drivers license you not only have to drive a bus but have a small level of understanding of the mechanics of the vehicle and air brakes and (who’da thought?) safety.
