Can be a very good work environment

Activities Coordinator (Former Employee)
Newport Coast, CA

ProsCan be very easy work in the right position. Mine, for instance, was very simple and not all that demanding but you did have to want to do it. As an activities coordinator, you are responsible for leading and organizing all activities and games at the resort, as well as coming up with ideas for potential new ones to add to the schedule. Some of the most fun times I've ever had at work, ever. There was also plenty of downtime in between various activities. Others may have found it to be a little dull, but I didn't mind one bit.

ConsIf you are not a people person this would not be the right fit for you. You will have almost constant interaction with guests and all employees are expected to smile and greet everyone they see or pass while walking. This can be taxing after a while, always having to be "up" and not being able to have a bad day where you just ignore everyone and do your own thing. Also some of the guests, and in this case, their children can be quite difficult to deal with at times, many were constantly looking for free items, or getting things comped just because, and they will complain to get what they want.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to actually manage, going through a "training course" and a book doesn't make people who have been followers all their lives into leaders. Try promoting those who are actually leaders by nature instead of just promoting those who have been there the longest time.

    He is fair and tries to take most of the heat before passing any on.
