I just left a DZ where the rotation was completely geared toward making the DZ money. The full timers ability to make a living doing this was the absolute last concern. They proved this week in and out, time and again. They told you that you would get all the work you could handle. This never happened in the year and a half I spent here. The work load was heavy. Every tandem got an altimeter, taught to pull, hands on the toggles on landing and the 2nd tandem taught to exit,turn and track. Logbook was filled. Never paid extra for this. After I left, the rest of the staff had to practically do a mutiny to prevent them from overstaffing. Again. It really amazes me how short sighted some DZO's can be. I fail to understand how a constant churn is beneficial. Apparently, as long as they can get away with this and the staff tolerates it, things will continue. Really is too bad. Could be a great place to work and jump. At this time, till a major change happens(management, owners) it will be a place to avoid. Like the plague.
