When you'll do it:
Starting in August/September and working until March 31, 2023. In March, staffing levels are evaluated and considerations about the next year are made. There may be an opportunity to stay on as a year round employee of the shop based on performance, work ethic, and the needs of the shop.
Peak season schedule (September - March) consists of 4 x 10hr shifts (8AM-6PM) with 2 consecutive days off. Off-season schedule (April - September) consists of 4 x 8hr shifts (8AM-4PM).
