    I have been working at Center Parcs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the pay if okay the benefits : 20% off all shops and restaurants (min spend of £5) free use of pool, gym and spa 60% off a holiday when you've worked with the company for 6 months, then 25% off all other holidays booked there free day passes

    Cons

    YOU'RE TOO TIRED TO USE ANY OF THE BENEFITS Managers are rude and expect too much too quickly. Staff can also be very rude (even if you're at the same level), making it an uncomfortable working environment. no work/life balance because you're worked so hard on impossible shifts that on your days off all you want to do is stay in bed and watch tv. People tend to stay in the same role forever with no sign of promotion. In the induction you're made to believe that Center Parcs is one big welcoming family - it's not..

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so rude

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Center Parcs (Westerhoven (Netherlands)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Ik vond een advertentie dat er een open sollicitatie dag was en heb me daarvoor opgegeven. Ik heb hierbij ook mijn CV en sollicitatie brief meegestuurd. Ik ben toen uitgenodigd voor de sollicitatie. Ik heb toen mijn sollicitatiegesprek gehad en kreeg vervolgens die zelfde middag al te horen dat ik was aangenomen.
