    Is there a link to the listing where people can submit their resumes? Also, what kind of time commitment would constitute part-time? Is this a 20hr/wk gig? Thirty five? Somewhere in between?

    I know it's still a fairly new listing but has anyone received any response upon sending their application in yet?

    Have not heard back from them yet.

    Also, I took part-time as basically meaning until the end of the season. If you get this job who cares how many hours you would be "working".

    Anyone have an idea on pay for this? Also, I'm assuming this is based out of New York?
