    I worked at Forever Resorts

    Pros

    The North Rim Grand Canyon Lodge is a gorgeous work location with trail and driving access to unparalleled natural beauty.

    Cons

    The pay here is ridiculously low, there was rampant drug and alcohol abuse among not only the seasonal workers, but at the management level as well. It took upper management almost the entire season to finally dispose of middle management engaged in an array of prosecutable offenses. There was so much public drunkenness tolerated that it was often difficult to sleep through the night without being awoken by loud intoxicated people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more resources into enforcing your own rules around quiet times and public intoxication. When you are hearing repeated allegations of sexual misconduct on the part of employees, conduct investigations instead of turning a blind eye to the problem. You'll have less liability this way. Pay more than minimum wage in order to avoid your sky-high rate of employee turnover throughout the season..

    Former Employee - Housekeeper in Temple Bar Marina, AZ

    I worked at Forever Resorts full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Employee food comes from the restaurant at this remote location on Lake Mead at Temple Bar Marina. Depends upon what cook prepares your meal. Housing is decent for this kind of location too.

    Cons

    Nepotism is rampant at this location so if you are not on their list just grin and bare it or remove yourself from this location altogether. Nepotism - "The practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends".. With a complacent company such as, Forever Resorts, it makes sense this will continue to happen. They even recently hired an ex-con who was in prison for numerous years.......well I guess some companies will hire anyone for minimum wage.
    Corporate HR was contacted with no follow up what so ever and then I found out that the HR in Scottsdale (Corporate) are just as complacent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to offer here eventually people will not work at these properties

    Pros

    The on-site resort staff was generally a good group of people, the resorts were generally well-maintained and equipped.

    Cons

    The corporate culture was dismissive and generally rude to the resort staff. It was made clear that we were replaceable and that we were to work and not complain about anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the corporate folks work for a month at the resort level so they know what the staff actually deals with. It would do the corporate culture a world of good.

    I have been working at Forever Resorts full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I absolutely love working here. Yes it is a call center environment, but all of my coworkers are so kind and caring. The management is fantastic and always there to hear any concerns. The company takes care of all the employees.

    Cons

    The only thing I would change would be to have multiple days off in a row.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more of a relationship with the employees

    Pros

    Decent food if the cook knows what they are doing otherwise a dead loss.

    Cons

    Way too many to list I will be here all day writing out an entire book of issues one after the next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This place is losing money, management does not care so the owners must not care this is a shame.

    Pros

    The North Rim! It's Breathtaking. It's Beautiful.

    Cons

    Just tons of BS to deal with with this company. Attempts to deprive us of our right to free Speech. Unwilling to hire enough staff. High burnout. Very political. Horrible company. Glad to be done and will never work with them again. They are good for getting on unemployment and for nothing else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue! Ever wonder why there are so many complaints at the North Rim? Don't act like things are OK - they are not. You'all need to lose your jobs and let new blood in. Good riddance and scram! Get lost!

    Former Employee - Server in Big Bend National Park, TX
    Former Employee - Server in Big Bend National Park, TX

    I worked at Forever Resorts full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience working in Big Bend National Park. Management sincerely cared for employee's. Great co-workers, fair cost of housing and food. Health insurance is available to everyone after six months of employment.

    Cons

    Working at a concessionaire in the National Park usually means lower wages. There was quite a bit of unwanted gossip among employee's,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to discourage gossiping among employee's. Higher wages despite the privilege of working in a national park.

  11. Wonderful experience, nice environment and friendly colleagues.
