Some frequently asked questions

  1. How soon can I get a Workstay? Once you have arrived in Perth and we have met you and you have met us, and you don't have two heads, we would usually get you going from within 2 days to 2 weeks. If however you do have two heads, it may take us a little longer. It always depends on whats available when you are. Workstay's reputation is based on us not sending you off to just anywhere.
  2. How much will I earn? Your basic take home (in hand) will be no less than $400 per 35 - 40hr working week, plus, you get your accommodation (own room) and all meals provided as part of the package. Some Workstays can pay substantially more depending on your previous bar experience and the length of time that you are available to Workstay etc.
  3. How do I get there? Usually travelling to your Workstay is via the government run bus or train network. Sometimes a lift may be organised or for further afield destinations there are other bus companies and for really remote destinations the pub may fly you. Most Workstays are within a radius of 500klms from Perth and travel to these places will cost on average between $20 and $100. Often the pubs will reimburse you the cost of travel after you have completed the agreed 'minimum stay'.
  4. Are Workstays for females only? Barmaids are an integral part of Outback Aussie culture and the original Workstay Country Pub Barmaids program was essentially for females, however more and more Workstay Pubs are taking guys as well (and couples, i.e. guys and girls travelling together) especially if the guys have pub experience or are qualified cooks/chefs.
  5. Do I need previous Pub experience? No! In fact this is another great thing about Workstays i.e. you get to learn something new and by the end of your Workstay Pub Experience you will be an experienced Bar and Hospitality person which will hold you in good stead wherever you go for further work ...
  6. What if I don't like it? No drama's, it usually takes at least a week to settle in but after that, if you just don't like it, then we have an easy escape plan, plus, if you wanted to try a different Workstay, then still no worries...Workstay has been designed to be win win for everyone ...
  7. Can I do more than one Workstay? Absolutely! ... in fact more and more Workstayers have done as many as four placements and loved them all ...
  8. Do I have to pay a Membership Fee to Workstay? No!

Workstay does not try to sell you anything. We try to help you 'Have the Time Of Your Life!
Workstay's costs are paid for by our Sponsor's, including the Workstay Pub's, Advertisers and other Workstay program host's.
