I have seen many consierge positions available at resorts. now my question is...

    That depends on what you are delivering in your consierge service.

    this particular question is for the ladies who know me personally...

    Guest services/front desk RD$12,000 (US$400) monthly.
    Usually you need to be tri-lingual or at worst, fully bi-lingual.

    Bell boy about RD$8,000 (US$260) monthly without tips.

    Sometimes they provide room and board.
    The rooms are usually bad and away from the resort.
    Large low end doorm complex.

    Now you know why you have seen many consierge positions.

    Good luck!

    can't compare DR with US... RD$14k a month in DR nowadays is good enough.
    there are many people making RD$3k a month... imajine that!!

    with RD$14-20k i would move... working part time of course.. jajaja.

    If you are going to give it a try based on what you learned from this thread, jou had better leave instructions with someone in NY how to Western Union money to you. RD$14,000 per month is a generous DR salary On that you can live a Dominican middle-class life. This is not an American middle-class life. Don't expect to pay housing costs, food, transportation and expect to have anything left for entertaiment except for a Presidente or two.

    Because people that earn middle class incomes in the DR don't own cars, eat at restaurants, have air conditioners, go on vacation, go to the movies, etc. My point was that you can earn a middle class Dominican salary, but have to live at Dominican middle-class standards. Most foreigners are used to a better stamdard of living. If they were to earn approx. RD$65 per hour. They have to work an hour to purchase a 2 liter bottle of soda. Work 2 hours to buy a box of candy. Work 6 hours to buy a Burger King extra value meal. Your life style changes. But, this way of life is the Dominican middle-class.

    They are not the middle-class Dominicans I know.
    All the families I know, have cars, own their homes and their kids are in private schools.
    In Santo Domingo they live in Bella Vista, Gazcue, Los Cacicagoz etc etc.
