I have been working at Kiawah Island Golf Resort part-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Free golf and scenery on Island.

Cons

Treat employees like crap!! All they care about in gross profit margin and making $$ goals. HR has tooo much power. HR Doing training with golf employees and they know nothing about golf. All anyone cares about is 5 star rating at hotel. Would not recommend Kiawah to anyone looking for Job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Separate the hotel from all Gold employee's. Hotel employees making tee times and telling Guest they can play as a twosome is ridiculous!!!

    Pros

    It's a great place to make money (With a lot of hard work). Beautiful island to see everyday! The golf courses are world class and a beauty to look at. The Sanctuary is breathtaking.

    Cons

    Unappreciative for their hard working employees. Penny-pinchers that only care about profit margins, not their employees. Poorly execute service behind the scenes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More organization and better communicate. More genuine concern and care for their employees.

    I worked at Kiawah Island Golf Resort full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ability to play some of the finest golf on the east coast for free. The pay was decent for the area and the scenery is unbeatable. You can get steep discounts on rooms and villas on the island.

    Cons

    Management pushes for too many service standards. They mandate you to fit their image and often are treated as a dime a dozen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees shine and be who they are. They are your strongest ambassadors to build customer relationships.
