I have been working at Ocean Properties full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
1. Employee turnover is high. High turnover creates an opportunity for a new inexperienced employee to get experience for a resume so the person can get a job at a better company offering better benefits, pay and nice work atmosphere.
2. Perpetually understaffed. Understaffing creates an opportunity for a new employee to feel like they are making a deposit in the emotional bank account when they are asked, with no advance notice to come in early, stay late and pick up an extra shift. Be prepared to have your schedule constantly change between night and day shift or night and day shift on the same day.
3. Experience in a crisis environment. High turnover and understaffing give an employee the opportunity to learn to function in a work environment filled with crisis after crisis. You can go to any hotel after working here and you'll be experienced in dealing with any problem you can imagine.Cons
1. Unappreciative. No matter what you contribute no one cares. You can do everything that is asked of you and volunteer for every unpleasant task and be on standby every minute of the day and no one will ever care what you've done for the company.
2. If a new employee is hired that the owner or managers believe is more experienced than you are the owners and managers will get rid of you in a passive aggressive manner. They will cut your hours or give you a shift you don't like. They may call you in to work with no notice and if it's impossible for you to come in they will write you up. If you agree to come in they will then send you home shortly after you arrive. If something goes wrong that has nothing to do with you, expect to receive a written reprimand.
3. Write up management style. Owners and managers write up employees to manage them. If an employee has a few write ups in their file they can be fired at any moment and it appears that the employee was fired with cause. If you are fired this way you may have difficulty finding another job in the hotel industry. OPL will report that you are not eligible to be rehired.
4. Low pay. Expect to earn the lowest pay for the job that you're doing. Be sure to get it in writing. You may be promised an hourly rate, an annual salary, a bonus or commission structure. After you receive your pay check you may notice that you haven't been given what you were told you would be paid. If you are an hourly employee your hours will be limited. If you're an hourly employee you probably can't buy insurance. You will likely choose between paying your bills and buying insurance. If you're a salary employee you'll work so many hours that your hourly rate will be lower than your employees. You may live in a constant state of sleep deprivation and stress caused by the crisis work environment. If you are promised a commission or bonus structure you may not get the money you were promised. The owner will come up with some excuse for why the company can't afford to pay you.
5. Don't get hurt. If you get hurt, expect to get written up almost immediately for something you had no control over. You may then be fired due to the write ups in your file.
6. Don't Complain. If you complain to your supervisor, a manager, human resources or an owner be sure to have another job lined up prior to your complaint. You will be written up shortly after for something that you didn't do or had not control over or that you had permission to do. Then, due to the write ups in your file you'll be fired. When a new employer calls to find out the circumstances they will be told that you are not eligible to be rehired and you probably won't be hired by the new company. You may need to find a job in a new industry.
7. Crisis environment. You'll work in a high stress environment. If you are a manager and have compassion for your staff this will be difficult to take on a day to day basis. If you are asked to get rid of a good employee without cause you will have a great deal of stress and regret. If you are an hourly employee and are helping angry guests there will be little than you can do to fix the problem. Understaffing will continue so there will be a constant crisis with many guests every day. If you are an hourly employee you will constantly be called in to work because someone quit unexpectedly or was fired unexpectedly. If you are a manager you will have employees quitting the moment they find a better work environment or can earn more money.
8. Long term managers. Some long term managers or directors make a decent living. They have been working for OPL for a decade or multiple decades. The managers and directors who make it this long are very impressed with the owners of this company. They have no problem working in this crisis structure. They have no problem treating employees with indifference. There is a coldness and lack of empathy in their character. It's disturbing.
9. Vacation. Don't expect to take a vacation during high season. If the summer is slow expect to be sent home without notice if you're an hourly employee. If you're a salary employee you will work more hours to save money so that you're hourly rate of pay is even lower than it normally is.
10. Owners. Speak only when spoken to. Do not talk to an owner unless they speak to you. A greeting such as hello or an owner looking at you doesn't mean you are permitted to talk to the owner. If an owner speaks to you keep your response limited. Most questions should be answered in a short sentence. The owner probably doesn't care about your opinion and likely is looking for a general attitude on the subject.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
