    Pros

    We get discounted breaks, 25% off, and once a year can have a 60% discounted educational break which I have used every year I have been working here and it's been great because have visited other center Parc villages, we have always stayed a week and had an executive villa because the savings are amazing. We get day passes so can bring friends and family in when we want to. Good discount in the shops and restaurants, the environment is beautiful and the staff are lovely.

    Cons

    Can be a demanding job as gets very busy at times so pressure is on to give constant excellent service but I think we achieve this as we have a good team.

    Pros

    Free things! When you work at center parcs you get a lot of freebies when you come in for the day (which is also free). You get discount on food when you're there and in the shops. The staff are so friendly and make you feel like part of the family.

    Cons

    It's very busy. When it's peak season you have to really up your game as it gets super busy. You often have to work alone as everyone else is super busy too. You have to make sure every guest feels extra special, which is a pro and con, as it's time consuming but fulfilling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Extra staff when so busy to make everything run smoother.

    Pros

    Great first impressions of organisation from structured induction and review meetings. Very clear vision and values.
    Very flexible for students studying and good peers worked with who made working fun.

    Cons

    Management not always quick to respond to any issues and due to huge organisational hierachy, difficult sometimes to know how to report any problems and who best to go to.
    Change in culture not communicated properly to staff resulting in negative view of organisation and a belief in the company focusing on its profits and not the wellbeing of it's employees

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work across different sectors across village locations and head office functions.

    Working too much to take advantage of the village facilities

    Improve 360 degree feedback from all levels of personnel as it's them that do the job, understand the issues and potentially have the resolutions
