Question:
help please!!! I don't understand this assignment!!! Thanks!!! Choose a House and Senate committee that deal with a similar policy area (foreign affairs/relations) and explore their functions. What kinds of issues does the committee you chose deal with? Give some examples. What strikes you about the scope of their jurisdiction?

Answer:

House Un-American Activities Committee (Red Hunt) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_Un-American_Activities_Committee United States Congressional committee http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Congressional_committee There are three main types of committees—standing, select or special, and joint. Standing committees are permanent panels identified as such in chamber rules (House Rule X, Senate Rule XXV). Select or special committees are established generally by a separate resolution of the chamber, sometimes to conduct investigations and studies, and, on other occasions, also to consider measures. Joint committees are permanent panels that include members from both chambers, which generally conduct studies or perform housekeeping tasks rather than consider measures.

How to get a job at a casino/hotel?

Question:
I'm a guy in my late 20s and i never had a job ever in my life. I do like to go to casinos a lot and like the atmosphere there. But the job that seems very appealing to me are those people at the front desk who check people in and out at the casino hotels. Of course the pay there is very low i but that job looks very good. Does anyone know if job positions like that are very hard to get? I checked online and it seems most require you to be a guest-friendly person and be a people person. I read some descriptions that having previous experience is a plus and of course a person with experience there will get a nod over the person with no experience. I don't know about you guys but if the pay was minimum wage, i would take it in a heartbeat. Has anyone here or know someone who tried to get a job at a casino and got it and can tell me how hard it is? I know there are positions at regular hotels as well for these front desk people but the ones at the casino seem really appealing than at a regular hotel. I know that people who work at retail such as starbucks etc get tired and rushed especially when there are so many customers waiting on line. But for hotel guests at the casino, it doesn't seem very stressful... of course I never had a job so this opinion of mine is holds no value probably because i have no experience. I know there are a ton of positions like host, bellman, cook, attendant at casinos but i would not qualify for any of those as you need skills in those things. Also, even though i have a college degree, it is not in that field. Anyone can give me any advice here?

Answer:

A casino is run by hundreds, if not thousands, of people. Some of them are highly visible, but many more work behind the scenes. In addition to the management, there are many kinds of employment offered at a casino. From dealers to chambermaids, from security to cigarette girls, there are dozens of jobs in a casino. Dealers Each game of chance has a dealer running it, except for the slots. Dealers are needed to run games such as baccarat, poker, blackjack, roulette and many more. Electricians Electricians make sure the lights and cameras are working in the casino and repair any faulty wiring. Computer Technicians and Automated Game Maintenance These people are responsible for ensuring the continued operations of automated games like Keno, Slots and Video Poker. They troubleshoot any problems related to computer and information systems technologies throughout the casino. Hotel Staff If the casino is attached to a hotel, then hotel staff such as concierges, bellhops, chambermaids and the like are also employed by the casino. Food Service Whether they are providing a monster buffet, or simply a midnight snack via room service, chefs and line cooks are an essential component of a casino. Entertainers Larger casinos often have stages, theaters or dance clubs. This means that they employ DJs, actors, dancers, showgirls, musicians, singers or magicians. Security Security personnel monitor activity on the floor from a remote location, or on the scene. They are responsible for maintaining safe conditions, as well as notifying management of potential cheaters or disorderly conduct. Read more: What Kind of Jobs Are There in a Casino? | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/facts_4885399_what-kind-jobs-there-casino.html#ixzz1Wdxi8Nas Hotels hire for a wide range of positions in departments such as housekeeping, human resources, food and beverage, conference services, and rooms division. Whether you are seeking an entry level position or a position in management, you can locate and apply for openings through hotel job resources online as well as in person. Online Job Resources The Internet makes it easy to locate hotel jobs in any area in the world. You can search for jobs at hotels in your area or you can see what is available in another location that may have more opportunities or in a place where you want to relocate. Hospitality Jobs Online is a website dedicated to featuring service positions including hotel jobs and restaurant jobs. You can narrow your search by selecting categories that include location, position, company, as well as management or hourly jobs. Hotel Job Resource is another online source for locating hotel jobs. You can search for jobs by selecting the industry, location or salary range, in addition to being able to post your resume for hotel employers to view it. Hotel Job Fairs Another source for finding hotel jobs is a hospitality career or job fair. Hotels that are looking to fill specific vacancies may host a job fair at their location where hiring managers can meet and discuss the job openings with potential employees. Colleges and universities typically host career fairs where there are several employers on campus advertising their open positions that may include vendors from the hospitality industry. These hotel job resources provide you the opportunity to meet employers in person and present your resume while explaining the reasons you are right for the job. You can prepare for hotel job fairs by learning what hotels will be represented and by planning to visit the booths of those hotels at which you want to work. Make sure you look up information about those hotels so that you can have a knowledgeable conversation with the representatives. Get their contact information from them and plan to follow up with them after the fair. Hotel HR Departments If you are interested in getting a hotel job within a particular hotel or chain, you can go to their website and look up their open positions online. Many hotels provide job listings on their websites so that potential employees can see the jobs available as well as the requirements and the location of the positions. You can apply for hotel jobs through the Internet or, if the hotel is in your area, you can go to their human resources department and complete an application in person. While you are there you may be able to talk to a HR representative or supervisor about the position you're interested in and let them know about your skills and desire to become an employee of the hotel.

Do Hotels Monitor People Staying in Room?

Question:
When you check in to a hotel, does any employee ever check on whose staying with you, or how many people are staying with you? Or will they only do that when they suspect anything? Does everyone whose staying in that one room have to be introduced at Check-in?

Answer:

Hi. I run hotels for a living and thought I might be able to answer your question. Hotel policies can vary, however, as a benchmark, it is important that the hotel know who is staying in the room. This is for the security of staff and guests, and if you think about it, in an evacuation scenario, it is vital to know who emergency personnel need to evacuate, etc. People also tend to use hotels as a way of masking activities that may be illegal or immoral. Most hotels will respect your privacy if you are cheating on a spouse, but will not condone illegal activities. As a hotelier, it is my responsibility to safeguard the wellbeing of the hotel property and reputation. My responsibility extends to ALL guests, not just you. So, if you are interfering with the quiet enjoyment of others, or if you have unregistered guests roaming the property, I would consider that an infraction under the terms in which you rented the room. I would give you an opportunity to cure the problem, but if you refuse to do so to my satisfaction, I would ask you to leave the hotel. Always remember, that as the registered guest, you are fully responsible for all conduct in that room, including the conduct of your visitors. If your visitors cause damage, etc, you will likely be held accountable. In hotels with security personnel, the officers will make routine patrols of the property to ensure the safety, security, and quiet enjoyment of all guests. They are not there to necessarily "spy" on you, but it is there job to enforce certain rules and safeguard people and assets. Housekeeping personnel also play a role in this scenario as well. They see your room in the morning and can determine its condition and number of people in the room. Some hotels charge extra for additional people staying in the room. This is because of the extra utility and cleaning costs they will incur as a result of the extra people. If you are looking to save money in this regard, shop around. There are hotels that have one rate for up to "x" number of people in the room. And if they don't, it never hurts to ask for one. Hotel pricing can be amazingly flexible. Hope this helps.
