  • Description


    Come help me serve my customers at my Hot Dog & Snowcone stand in Groveland California. Groveland is the northern gateway to Yosemite National Park. I need light help with the day to day operation of my business. It's easy work for two, a huge task for me alone. I appreciate any help very much and it is rewarded kindly with a competitive wage. I have a room for someone to stay in or I can offer cash in exchange for your help with the hot dog cart... or both.
    I pay $13 per hour and thus is much more than minimum wage in California. Lunch and or dinner is also included. Tasks include keeping the eating area clean, greeting customers, making change for purchases, hospitality and helping with keeping soda cans and bags of chips fully stocked.
    3 Weeks ago I injured my back while moving a pool table. At the same time I had 6 puppies that were two weeks from showing for sale & going thier new homes. I couldn't open my hot dog cart for almost two weeks and I struggled to keep up with the puppies & the daily cleaning of the house in general. I am still struggling with many aspects of existence.😜🤪😝 I now need the help of several people for my new plan. I have two long and comfortable couches and plenty of space for inflatable mattresses! The house needs a top to bottom cleaning to be ready for guests & parties. PLEASE HELP?!?

    Here's my plan:
    I plan to hold several private parties that include food, poker, pool & beer for an entry fee. I also plan to pick up a load of pumpkins to sell at the property for Halloween as well. I have a Instagram Photo spot that will need an attendant to sell printed postcards of the image to tourists (see photo) and someone to help with the poker & pool games. The local Mar-Val grocery store 1/4 mile away is hiring for full & part time positions if anyone needs to earn additional funds. There are many other jobs available in the area. I plan to hold a VIP Thanksgiving dinner for a prepaid fee and in December I plan to sell Christmas trees. As you can tell, I have many plans and I need a lot of help. Are you up for it? Yosemite National Park is amazing this time of year and everyone will have ample time to enjoy it and the surrounding areas.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My businesses close proximity to Yosemite Nation Park means that people from all over the world stop at my hot dog stand. It is amazing to meet such a diverse group of people on a day to day basis while serving the best quality Hot Dogs & Sausages with VEGAN options too! LIVE MUSIC is often played here and you can perform too if you are talented in that regard. Learn about entrepreneurship and how a small business like mine can be so prosperous. Practice your English among those that love to help teach. No stress or drama. Peaceful & happy.
