SUMMER JOBS PICTUREAs summer rolls around the corner, students prepare to fill out applications to earn a little extra money during the season.

Junior Dejaye Roskos is a returning employee for K9 Country Lodge who looks for forward to working with the dogs during break.

“What I like about working there in the summer is having something to do and the hours fit in with my schedule really good. It’s also nice having an income because I can do fun stuff in the summer that requires money,” said Roskos.

Roskos along with her employers help take care of the dogs that stay there while the dog’s families travel. The summer is usually the busiest month for the lodge.

“The main thing I do at K9 is obviously take care of the dogs, but I also have to deal with customers. We do extras with the dogs which include walking the dogs, one on one playtime, fetch, free runs, jacuzzi time and massages. It makes for a great summer job because the dogs keep you busy,” said Roskos.

Another place that is popular for student applications is Black River Falls’ local Hoffman Aquatic Center. Junior Jayden Gjerseth spent his last summer guarding the pool with a few of his classmates.

“I like working at the pool because of the contrast in stress. It is the mellowest job I’ve ever had, except for when someone is in need of your help then you’re possibly putting someone’s life into your own hands, that’s not very mellow,” said Gjerseth.

Many positions are open at the pool besides lifeguarding. There is always help needed in the concessions and admissions area.

“I think it’s a great place to work just due to the people that work there. Everyone is friendly and always happy to help each other,” said Gjerseth.

Students in search for a summer job may also be leaning towards a fast food restaurant. Junior Liz Lipke has been employed at Mcdonald’s for a little less than two years and really enjoys the skills she has learned.

“It would be good for people to work there because it teaches responsibility and the actuality in working and running a business,” said Lipke.

Other summer job opportunities include Dairy Way, Culver’s, Burger King, Walmart, and Wazee Lake Campground.
