Just searched Maui in this bowl and saw your post lol I used to spend 2.5 weeks at the Westin there every summer growing up. Best memories.

I loved The Laylow on Oahu. It’s in Waikiki, a few blocks from the beach. The best ramen shop is across the street and an awesome taco shop just down from the ramen place. It was so good

Ritz at Kapalua is great but you are a bit far from things. Westin Villas on the west side of Maui are nice too and closer to Lahaina. Would have said St Regis Kauai but as of tomorrow it’s being rebranded and is no longer part of the Marriott chain

Marriot beach club on Maui (in wailea) had wonderful pools and lovely rooms and such easy acccess to a beautiful beach.

Sheraton on the big island in Kona was not fancy but very nice and not a ton of points

Recently passed the GCS exam this cycle- I understand people use this specialty to their advantage in a job app process but was wondering if anyone has asked their current employer for a higher rate for their specialty? If so, how much did you ask for? I’m in outpatient ortho, 4 years experience, southwest CT region. Seeing very wide pay ranges for “geriatric physical therapist” on Glassdoor, etc and would appreciate any input!

Looking for salary range for full time audio visual in hotel settings in central Florida area, I started a position with a hotel recently and workload is much higher than they made it out to be and I am doing all labor and administrative on my own. Looking to renegotiate my terms.

I’m on my first work trip since getting sober. I was scared that this would be one long trigger and I’d spend the whole trip either on the phone with my sober friends or sneaking drinks at the hotel bar.

But I’m here, and I’m fine. I found out one of my colleagues got sober too and it’s so much easier with them here. I guess Bill W was onto something.

Anyway very grateful to God and to all the drunks and addicts on here. One day at a time

[Freelance VS Employee]

I’m in the same company since 4 years and now I feel I need a change (and a raise lol). I’d like to be involved in new projects where I can develop new skills. It’s like I know I can do better then this and there’s a world to discover and I’m afraid I’m missing it.

Still, my coworkers are great and I would be sorry to leave a company like this. What can I do? Is it possible to be a freelance while you are still an employee? What about work life balance? 🫠
