So, the pay isn't much, but the weather is hard to beat 9 months out of the year... except for the occasional tornado... but the food is good, the music is great, the girls are pretty and the guys are all good looking. If seriously interested apply today or tomorrow. I anticipate another opening or two in the next few weeks, since some surrounding agencies are now paying more than we are.
