Working for Club Med sounds great. How do I get a job?
Club Med has a 'jobs' web page (www.clubmedjobs.com).
GOs make around $500US per month plus room and board. It sounds like a cool job, but it's really a LOT of work. There is a high burnout rate. Starting out, you would not really get to choose which village. They would tell you. They might give you the choice of a couple of villages, but it's their choosing, not yours. Multilingual helps a lot.
Working at CM is a mind set kind of thing. You have to have the right personality. GOs are now getting one day off every week; something new. You would be living, eating, working, and mixing with the guests all day, every day. Think of it as working 24 hours a day. It's kind of like the movie 'Groundhogs Day'. Don't get me wrong, I've met LOT'S of GOs that have been doing it for years; and love it.
What's the e-mail address of a GO I met at the last village I visited?
We don't have personal email addresses of G.Os who have worked at Club Med. If you didn't think of asking him/her for her address when you were there then you will have to find another way to contact that person. What usually works is to call the village or send a fax. If that doesn't work you can post a message in the 'Find a G.O' forum and see if you get any response. It has worked on several occasions.
How do I find out which village a GO I met is at now?
It is very difficult to keep track of all the G.O's who are spread out over all the Club Med VIllages in the world. To help you a little we have created the Track-A-G.O tool which might help you n finding out where a certain G.O was or is. The Track A G.O database is maintained by all the visitors of Club Med Planet (yes, that includes you) so the more accurate information we have the easier it will be to find those G.O's we are looking for and meet old friends.
Why are there 2 forums, regular and (X)G.O
The XGO side of the forum is no longer maintained due to most XGO's using facebook
Even though most of the activity is happening on the regular forum sometimes (X)G.O's want to communicate privately with their (former) colleagues.
Why don't I get approved on the (X)G.O forum
Approval is done manually using different criteria based on your application. We don't ask you for credit card information but we need just enough information to prove that you are or were a G.O. If e.g. you only entered "Bob, Cancun 2005" then you will not be approved. Let us know who you are, what you did and where with whom. That way it will also be easier for other G.Os to recognize you.
