Pros

Culture, environment, perks, local management, team.

Cons

Live Nation bought HOB and all the above went out the window

Advice to Management

Share the wealth. Upper management is making bank, while rank and file employees are under paid and over worked.

    Pros

    • Good shows once in a while
    • Fun seeing regular customers
    • The brand is about southern hospitality and teaches the employees to friendly with each other. The diverse team has amazing comradery

    Cons

    Everything else;
    • High turn over of shady managers that are disrespectful and have limited experience. I hear they aren't paid well at all. Therefore, there is a team that has worked there for eight Plus years and the managers come and go.
    • Everyone is on the lowest possible end of the pay scale.
    • Live Nation is killing the brand
    • NO opportunities for advancement regardless of background and education
    • Chaotic unorganized events
    • Bad food.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    The property staff and management are wonderful. It's a fun, casual environment with a group of people who care about each other. The food is great as are the concerts. Property management knows their stuff. .

    Cons

    The corporate office makes everything difficult. The stick their nose into decisions that should be made at the propert level and have no clue what they're talking about. Everyone has 12 corporate bosses and they all love to tell you what to do and they all say something different. No one from corporate ever gives you a pat on the back

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to butt out!
