GENERAL INFO

The Surrounding Area
The Tyler Place is located in northwestern Vermont, on Lake Champlain, in the town of Highgate Springs.  The surrounding area is rural and hilly and composed primarily of summer camps, residential homes and small dairy farms.  There is no public transportation, but The Tyler Place has a van that goes into St. Albans and Burlington once or twice per week to give staff an opportunity to shop and do their banking.

Summer Positions
Following is a list of positions available at the resort: Lifeguard, Dock Hand/Water Sports Instructor, Camp Counselor, Housekeeper, Laundry, Sous Chef, Cook, Baker, Prep Cook, Dishwasher, Dining Room Server, Buffet Attendant, Children’s Meal Server, Front Desk Clerk, Bartender, Cocktail Server, Adult Activities Leader, Assistant Nature Guide, Tennis Pro, Photographer, Bicycle Maintenance, Driver and Assistant Gardener. Most jobs are full-time (40 hours per week).

Salaries:
New staff can expect to be paid a minimum of $10.78 per hour (more for returning staff and/or supervisory positions). Most staff work full time (about 40 hours per week) and opportunities exist to make extra income (babysitting, assisting with housekeeping duties, working overtime in your department, etc.). We expect you to take your job seriously and to strive to do your best at all times.  Paychecks are distributed every two weeks.

Housing:
The Tyler Place provides free housing.  Housing is located on The Tyler Place property and is within a 5-15 minute walk to work. Men and women live near each other, but in separate buildings. Most of the dorms have washing machines and dryers (free of charge).  Linens, pillows and towels are provided by The Tyler Place.  Most dorms do not have kitchens but all have a refrigerator, microwave and toaster.  We expect that you will keep your rooms, bathrooms and shared living spaces neat and clean (there’s an inspection once each week).

Meals:
Staff are provided with 3 free meals a day (plus an evening snack). Meals are served buffet style in the Staff Dining Room at the Inn. All staff are expected to bus their own dishes and utensils and keep the dining room and buffet area picked-up.  Staff are given 6 passes to eat in the Guest Dining Room during the summer.

Use of Facilities:
Staff are invited to participate with guests in some scheduled daytime activities when their schedules permit and on a guest first basis. Staff are also welcome to attend evening guest entertainment events and to mingle with guests on a social basis. During scheduled time off, staff may use the pools, canoes, kayaks, sailboards and sunfish as well as the fitness center and tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. However, at all times we ask that you respect our “guest first” policy and to be friendly, helpful and courteous whether on or off duty.

Staff Committee:
The Staff Committee is a small group of your peers who are responsible for planning, organizing, budgeting and executing staff events, trips and parties.  The Tyler Place provides the Staff Committee with a weekly budget to help cover the costs of events.  The Staff Committee members are responsible for getting everyone’s input and ideas and try to plan the timing of events so that all staff members have a chance to attend some of the activities.

Bonus:
All staff are eligible to receive a bonus of up to $400 at the end of the season. The amount of bonus received is based on a variety of factors including (but not limited to): adherence to contract dates, condition of housing, job performance, attitude, proper use of the time clock, punctuality and respect for Tyler Place policies and property.

Days Off:
All staff get one or two full days off each week. Weekends tend to be our busiest time, so plan on being scheduled for Saturdays or Sundays (or both). Due to the length of our season and the difficulty in scheduling, we cannot accommodate special requests for time off.  If you are hired, you will be expected to work the schedule you are given. Should something unexpected come up, your department supervisor will try to accommodate you, depending on the situation and availability of alternate coverage.  Please wait and do your traveling after the season is over. We offer special trips, excursions and events for staff during the summer so you’ll have an opportunity to shop, visit other areas, and experience activities on and away from The Tyler Place property.
