Hello

I have been offered a job as Guest Relation Officer in a hotel in Sharm, I've only been to Hurghada and was wondering if anybody could give me a few tips and advice.

Firstly, I am a 24 year old British female, I will be travelling alone. The hotel provides accommodation and meals, the monthly salary is $400, rising to $500 after the first month, I've heard Sharm's more expensive than Hurghada, will I be comfortable with this wage? The hotel's in Shark Bay, is there much to do in that area? On my day off, I would want to go to the beach, shopping etc, bearing in mind I will be alone, is there safe places to go? Is there anyone else working in hotels doing a similar job that they can give me tips on? If I decide to go, it will be next month, this might sound daft, but I'm a big child when it comes to Christmas, do they celebrate over there? I'm expecting to be mithered by the men as I was in Hurghada, is this quite intimidating? I'm quite a smiley person and I don't want to come across as rude and ignorant!!

There's probably loads more I'll think of so if any one can think of something that may be useful I'd very much appreciate it.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Teyna, x

Hi Teyna

First of all, welcome to this forum and the SWC!

You have been offered a job as a GR in Sharks Bay. Sharks Bay is a nice small lovely bay close the the airport, so not in the center of Sharm El Sheikh.

The Tourist Center is about 15min drive away and the old town about 30min. There are usually Taxis around and probably your Hotel will even have a bus to Naama several times a day.

You have been offered USD 400, increasing to USD 500USD. It is definately not a very high salary. Putting in consideration that you will have your accommodation and all meals in the hotel, this is also of value and means you dont have to spend money on rent etc. Usually the Hotel offers you as well the laundry service, working permit, health insurance etc. So your wage is your pocket money. Start calculating:-)

Depending on your performance (do you have experience in this field already?) I would try to discuss a salary increase after a few months of working (written in the contract).

Sharm is a safe place in general, so do not worry too much! There are always people getting on your nerves everywhere, so is it here (and like in Hurghada:-)). Depending on your own behaviour, I am sure you will handle that.

Sharm is a nice place to live and offers a lot and the expat-community is growing everyday. You will find a lot of nice people here.

Think about everything very well and then make up your mind.

Good luck!

Hello Destiny

Thank you so much for taking the time to write that very informative reply. I do appreciate it, and will certainly keep everything you said in mind when making my final decision.

Hope you are well.

Teyna
