    I worked at Saddlebrook Resorts full-time (more than an year)


    There are guests who make your experience as an employee well worth the hard work and effort to do your job to your fullest potential in order to make their vacations the best it can be.


    This is a private resort owned by an older gentleman who has employed the same individuals on his executive board for many years, despite a dire necessity for change. People on his executive board promote people based on personal interest and likeability, rather than job performance, and this has contributed to a very hostile working environment- one in which unprofessional conduct is frequent, such as name calling, sexual harassment, improper work distribution to less popular managers and employees, lack of responsibility and accountability, etc. I didn't even receive an exit interview from the human resources department after being called off upon putting in my two weeks resignation. I was not impressed by the lack of oversight and the consistently unfair treatment of employees at this resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not refuse to promote those that you do not like because 1) it is against the law and called retaliation, and 2) they just might be some of your strongest employees that have the potential to elevate Saddlebrook and restore its positive reputation from the 1980's and 1990's.
