hey guys.
I was just wondering... When working in europe doing stuff like bartending/serving and jobs in hostels (no visa), how do you get paid? Is it cash or should i asume my room is included? Is there an average pay rate for countries like England, France, Italy, Switzerland? or are they realitivley all the same? I'm not a very good negoiator (or speller). Is it a good idea to always try and talk 'em down?
Do people generally work crazy hours? Is there time in a day to do both work and take in some sights?
Can someone work somewhere for a day or two? or is there some sort of rule or minimum stay required?
I guess thats goor for now. I'm sure i'll think of more questions.

Thanks for all your help.
