    I worked at Cedar Crest Village part-time

    Pros

    tuition reimbursement
    ability to transfer internally
    various discounts (i.e. cell phone, movie tickets)
    uniform provided for several positions

    Cons

    they like to hire lots of per diem employees to avoid paying benefits to full time workers; it was difficult to obtain a full time position

    Advice to Management

    act professionally and advocate for the need for more full time help when needed

  3. Great if you're full time. Terrible if you're part time.

    Pros

    You will have flexible hours.
    You will not be given difficult tasks.
    You will be paid decently.
    The work itself is deeply rewarding.

    Cons

    You will be employed part time, because management believes it's cheaper to train three discontent per diem employees per season than paying for benefits for one full timer.
    You, as a part time employee, will be insulted with a patronizing attitude and the constant threat of your utter expendability.
    The various Erickson values are thrown around as an excuse to never give anyone a raise or to discipline people, but any claim of employee community is a bad joke. People show up to collect a check and go home.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more full time employees. Your per diem employees are resentful and disengaged. Provide more paths for growth, or be prepared to face a future of morale issues.

    Pros

    flexible schedule.
    pay is ok.
    you meet new people.

    Cons

    Managers do whatever they want and don't get in trouble.

    you apply to be a waiter and you end up washing dishes every day you come to work. if you say no they will make your life hell and take you to the office.

    you need to park about 1/4 of a mile from where the building is. that is ok with me. what happens if there is no parking? well you get a ticket, you get six and they send you to park in across the highway.

    horrible unprofessional management.

    Advice to Management

    Not to management since they are unprofessional as they forget about their work responsibility by building friendship with the managers and higher positions. they get away with anything and everything. you go to Human resources and they don't do anything no matter if is 50 people talking against one manager( true story) he will not get fired for the LOVE OF GOD . it has happened. my advise to the people who makes the policies on that place is to: get ready..... DRUG TEST YOUR MANAGERS RANDOMLY!!!!!!!! I can't stand when a manager comes obviously doped out of his mind to work and disrespect us.

    Pros

    Only thing that is good about this place is flexible hours

    Cons

    After working here nearly five years I just had to leave things were getting so bad. It used to be a good, friendly place to work, everyone was nice and people talked to one another. Now, everyone is afraid that they will get fired over stupid things like reading a newspaper or being "too talkative" or friendly with the people we serve.
    Some nights, servers are required to do the job of a dishwasher yet not compensated for it(Dishwashers normally make $0.50 more per hour than the regular servers) and you can't really say no.
    The managers are biased, if you're on their good side you can get away with murder but if not, you cant get away with taking a little sip of water in your downtime.
    Managers have schemed to get other managers out of office(the reason why I decided to leave)
    Management makes rules that make us unable to do our jobs in a reasonable amount of time. and then allow countless exceptions to the rule. Except when someone they don't like breaks it, then they will be reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Managers at the overlook: you guys let this place fall apart, we used to be the best restaurant in all of Erickson Communities and I was proud of that fact. but with all these strict rules it makes it impossible to do our jobs. Pay attention to the peer trainers and servers and listen to them in the meetings.
