You will work six days a week, approximately 8-9 hours a day, divided in three parts. (Start10:00-12:30, 15:00-17:00 20:30-00:00). In the beginning of the season you will need to give extra time to rehearse for the evening shows. Your working hours will be given by your Team Leader or Hotel Manager.
