Turned in my paperwork for Monarch Mountain employment for the ’08-’09 season the other day. The deadline was something like November 1st. I applied for full-time, 90-days (probably means actually working more than 100 days). Monarch Ski and Ride School has 90, 70, 50, 30, 18, and 10 day commitments. The more committed you are the higher on the lesson rotation you are, among other things like years of employment, level of certification, your “return request” rate, etc. Last year I think my rate of return requests was like 50%. That’s not bad for an instructor that does not normally teach Children’s Center lessons (3-6 year olds). Instructors that do teach CC lessons tend to have a higher return rate. I guess once a parent sees that the child is comfortable with you it’s almost a given that they will request you next time. From what I understand there are a limited number of slots for each of the level of commitments. I think there is only room for nine or tem 90-dayers. Good thing I got my paperwork in on time. Employee orientation is November 8th. That’s where we will go over our schedules. Once I have that I’ll post it here. I think there’s a good chance I’ll get hired on as a 90-dayer. This will be my 18 season at Monarch.
