Current Employee - Back of the House in Grapevine, TX
Current Employee - Back of the House in Grapevine, TX

I have been working at Gaylord Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is good (for now), Generally a fun place to work, Discounts at other hotels, Hotel generally tries to treat employees well

Cons

A new managment company (gaylord doesn't own this company anymore, not sure if the CEO listed is still in charge) is taking this place in a very troubling direction, new positions coming in paying less than current employees which probably means cuts down the road, poor benefits pkg, career opportunities will be limited, very poor work/life balance, disconnect with Senior Mgmt., unreasonable goals and demands

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get back to what made this hotel great - taking care of the employees

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gaylord Entertainment full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people on the front lines
    Decent insurance
    Discounted tickets to the Grand Ol' Opry, General Jackson
    Employee discount at Bass Pro Shop

    Cons

    Middle management that does not portray what's actually going on
    Lack of training opportunities
    Favoritism run amok
    Very cliquish groups at the back of the house

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't always listen to your middle managers. They will tell you what they think you want t hear. You need to get down on the front lines and find out what's really going on. Get rid of the favoritism and give more opportunities to move up within the company.
