I know this is a really silly question, but how much roughly do you get paid working as a ski/chalet host? We ahve applied to loads of companies - mailnly in France- but none of them mention the rates of pay.

Peaky if you read this, would really welcome some sound advice!!!!

Hi Jools

I believe it is usually around 60 quid a week plus board and lodge and a ski pass.

well... depends what company you go with and the job you do.

the more expensive companys-generally pay more, i.e. tops vs mark warner = 35 vs 55 (or something along those lines) and if your gonna go with a company they sort out your ski pass, ski hire, lodging, food... if you go on your own you gotta sort alot more out. But also if your chalet hosting your gonna get alot more money than being a chalet minion.    
if you've nevr hosted a chalet before beware cos its amazing for some people but you may be on your own in a small chalet, ( which isn't always everyones cup of tea) but hey it depends what you really want out of it-if your hosting you dont get your head housekeeper or restaurant manager nagging you because you are head of house and restaurant!
good luck!

not a clue on wages, sorry buddy, but as i understand some companys pay for ski pases and gear hire and uniform, some companies dont, and they ask for a deposite up front, personally id choose the companies that sort out everything for you

Adidas explained that workers get paid per ball. Wage-records are checked. The piece rate and the amount of balls that can be stitched by one person are determined by the quality of the material. On average, one worker can stitch 5 balls of thin (lower quality) material or 3 balls of thick (higher quality) material per day. One of Adidas's representatives at the NCP meeting has personally confirmed through interviews that workers are able to achieve wages equal to or above the minimum wage within reasonable working hours. Also, the concern of ICN that the middleman takes 10% of the price paid for each kit is not relevant to the workers producing for Adidas, since there are no middlemen in the factories.
