    Excellent Company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Brasstown Valley Resort and spa full-time

    Pros

    Enjoyed the people, leadership, and growth opportunities found at this company. I was able to grow and learn professionally and personally during my time there.

    Cons

    The biggest "con" to working at this company is the general nature of hospitality. Working weekends is essential, as is working holidays. The industry never takes a break and you will be required to work on days when you would rather be with family or friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look at inside candidates to fill roles. These people know the business and your company already!

    Ok at best. Dazzling front with a reasonably grimy underbelly.

    I worked at Brasstown Valley Resort and spa full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly staff, mostly, and reasonably easy work. Decent hours during off season.

    Cons

    Management unwilling to let go of/train/discipline employees that are unwilling to complete required tasks. Low pay, despite workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employees better, not just on hospitality, but on actual job performance and be willing to set standards you back up with discipline. Take employee reviews seriously, and quit pencil-whipping a 90 day review after 6+ months of employment. Create continuity binders/ training binders that employees can take ownership of/take pride in.

    I have been working at Brasstown Valley Resort and spa full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The management team are a great group of people to work with and for. The staff can get dysfunctional; however, if you have a need they are the first to jump in and help, whether it be personal or job related. The work environment is wonderful, safety if a priority, keeping people employed is primary along with growing revenue for owners.

    Cons

    The hospitality industry is not for everyone. People who succeed are those who genuienly enjoy working with and for people without looking for the praise. We can work long hours, weekends are just another day and holidays we are here to serve our guests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the morale up, keep the communication flowing and continue to understand you have people working for you and not just a body!
