    Current Employee - Facilities Manager in Geneva, OH

    I have been working at Delaware North Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    First and foremost are the venues!!! National parks, professional sports, gaming, hotels and airports. The jobs are fast-paced and exciting. The pay and benefits are very competitive and there is an excellent internal network for advancement. My military background did not exactly match up 100% for the job, but my leadership skills, ability to adapt and work ethic were enough, everything else I learned very quickly.

    Cons

    For the most part its not 9-5 or Monday through Friday. Some places are seasonal, therefore retaining top quality people can be challenging. Unlike the military where there unlimited budgets, personnel and resources, the private sector has limitations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of promoting DNC, before I started working here I had no idea who we were. Even after 3 years, when I explain my job and DNC, people don't always understand, manage or own??? Need an internal network within my division for products, ie best bar dishwasher is ????, top 3 showerheads????? etc.

    Pros

    Great pay, beautiful venues and facilities. If you are a lover of gaming, retail, food, destinations that are breath taking and sports; than this is the company to work for. Great exposure to other units best practices through travel, conferences and conference calls.

    Cons

    Hard work, long hours but well worth the effort. You get what you give. Put in the work and you can be recognized for your dedication. Be prepared to not work a normal 9-5. Even in those positions that could be considered 9-5 flexibility is a must. You will work evenings and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the future. Technology is growing and gaining momentum daily. Stay on or ahead of the growth to ensure guest service does not suffer.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with at least in the Guest Relations usher staff.
    Friendly staff throughout the building.
    Commitment to teamwork!
    Guest path is a great program!

    Cons

    the pay is only part time. Not much room for low level temporary employees to advance. But a great part time job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more advancement in the company for low level employees. More recognition programs for people who get overlooked who do a consistent good job.
