    I have been working at Welk Resort Group full-time

    Pros

    We have an amazing upper management Team both at our Corporate Office along with the Resort. If you get the opportunity to speak with them you will find out very quickly that they have all been part of the Welk Family for many years. This to me speaks highly of the organization. Coming from a large Corporation and getting the opportunity to join this Family has been a giant blessing. The Employees within my department and those departments that I work with have all made this transition easy-they are all very friendly and approachable and have always offered help when needed.
    The offer great benefits for the Employees that include medical, dental, vision, 401K (most companies no longer offer this) and most of all the Employee Stock Option (when was the last time anyone offered this). Welk offers wonderful discounted meals to the associates along with the discount at our Starbucks (I know all the associates love this). Upon hire they had a wonderful Safety Recognition Event for all the associates where they gave away a TON of GREAT prices.
    The internal training that they offer to the Employees has been exciting and helpful. This organization has so much wonderful history that it truly makes it feel like a Giant Family. The days have just flown by since I joined this wonderful organization and I look forward to many more years of wonderful growth and opportunities.

    Cons

    Would like to see a menu for employee meals with "specials" that change often. I know employees like this sort of stuff and currently we just offer a discount off the regular menu.
    You will definitely need to be a hard worker that can work in a fast paced environment-this is just the industry and can be very rewarding if you put your all into it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work with those Employees that want to be here and that want to grown with the organization. These are the people that will help the company continue to Grow in a position light.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was lengthy; come to find out it was solely due to the inefficiency of the departments processing new-hires; HR and the R.S.O.I commented on the fact that the job posting/s, to include Welk Resorts own website career page, has an unfavorable layout for the RSO Pools/ II and has a couple of misspellings; not very professional.

    Interview Questions
    • Actually, it was comments made by the R.S.O management that through me off; there was a lot of off-putting comments about Glassdoor.   View Answer
