Associate Creative Director

I would like to take my daughter to great wolf lodge which is 450$ a night with the quest passes fir 2 kids. And I think it would be fun to have her invite one of her friends. I do t mind paying for the stay and the water park passes but would not want to pay 100$ extra for the quest pass and food. Is there a decent way for me to invite her friend but let it known that they would need to pay for food and quest pass? Or am I being cheap?

    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Great Wolf Lodge (Traverse City, MI)


    Well put together as far as questions; but many (5). Same questions in a different delivery.
    Although questions were well thought out, environment was a bit ‘unwelcoming’ and a bit stand-offish.
    Largely due to the busy nature of the operation and interviewing managers being on the front lines.

    Tell me about your management style.
