However they are usually pretty poorly paid and involve long hours.Bar jobs are normally 6 days giving 1 free day off a week. It helps if you have experience or some previous training.
Restaurant Work In Meribel.
There are many restaurant jobs each season in Meribel. Chefs,waiters,waitresses,kitchen staff,cleaning staff. Many are French owned. In these cases French language is normally necessary.The English owned restaurants will noramlly prefer English staff with the right to work in France. Hours are long. Money is poor. 1 day a week off is normal.
Meribel Season Work – Chalet Staff:
Chalet staff work long hours for little pay. However they normally get accommodation, food, and lift pass with ski hire included. The chalets have vacancies for a chef or cook with training or experience. Often the chalets need drivers, so there are now many driving jobs.(age 23+). Some chalets employ nannies for the season. Some will need a general maintenance man also if they have many chalets to look after.Again, no matter what the role season work in Meribel very rarely pays much.This is because the jobs are much sought after, even with low pay.
