Your wages will be at least minimum wage, which is approximately NZ$20 before tax. Your hours of work will depend on your employer, but you’re likely to work between 20-40 hours per week, for the entire summer season (October-April). There will be busier periods during the school holidays (between Christmas and mid-Feb, and at Easter). You’ll need to be available to work on weekends and public holidays, and during the evenings, as these are key tourism times.
