Former Employee - Golf Intern  in  Wintergreen, VA
Former Employee - Golf Intern in Wintergreen, VA

Pros

It's a beautiful place to be for the summer, especially when surrounded by dozens of other wonderful interns your age! I met so many people from countries all over the world, and made lifelong friends. The perks of being an employee, free golf, discounted meals & access to the pool are great! I highly recommend a summer internship there!

Cons

The apartments aren't free unfortunately, but they are relatively clean and very close to work. The rules are strict sometimes and you have to be really careful about drinking since you are living on property.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep treating the interns with respect and they will do just fine!

    Pros

    Recreation Benefits, OK health Benefits, beautiful scenery

    Cons

    Salaries for majority below area average while other way above
    Wear and tear on car driving up and down mountain daily
    Lodging below par
    Restaurants expensive for service and quality of food
    Too concerned about bottom line profits to care about guests and employee satisfaction and same management for to many years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actions speak louder than words!!! For years the GM Hank Thiess has stated transparency is the most important part of the company but his actions say otherwise. In the event of any news that all associates should be informed about have all been learned from the news media. Then over a week later each time finally management says something and we also learn they knew days before the media knew. Respect your associates and not always try to cover yourself only with media relations.

    Pros

    Some pros are the amenities that come with the job, such as free skiing and able to use the spa and fitness center for free. Also resort discounts are nice.

    Cons

    Hours aren't great and good luck getting the weekend off. Plus gas is crazy having to drive up the mountain every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very closed minded and not up to date. They are not willing to change. Also I've noticed there is a lot of favoritism in most departments. This will influence raises and promotions. The management is driving that place into the ground.
