    Not competitive in pay. Takes long periods of time to move to upper positions. Upper positions is only good for experience not pay.

    I worked at Grand Pacific Resorts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    For being on the smaller scale for a company, their benefits are awesome! Health insurance is extremely affordable (which is very important these days). They do give raises, even in economically difficult times we were still given a cost of living raise, which I found out once I left, doesn't happen at other companies.

    Cons

    Promotions seem few and far between. It seems like they promote those that they "like" versus those that have put in the time and dedication. It has been a few years since I have worked here, so maybe things have changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never forget to appreciate the work your little worker-bees are doing for you. A simple thank you, or I appreciate that could make someone's day so much brighter--especially if they are trying to do such a good job, but don't feel as though they are being recognized. Some people don't like to boldly announce all the wonderful things they have done. Keep and eye out on those who are quiet about that stuff.

    Pros

    Beautiful part of northern San Diego.

    Cons

    No women in upper management. Insensitive to employees, e.g. President told employees there would be no raises,even though raises had been given out 4 months before and everyone should tighten their belts. The next day he shows up in a new Porsche.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't want any.

    I worked at Grand Pacific Resorts full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    I took direction from two managers. One would tell me to do something and then the other would literally yell at me for doing it. Horrible communication. High pressure and lies to timeshare clients. I didn't work there for very long because I couldn't stand how dishonest they were.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop scamming people.

    Pros

    Nice people work in staff positions.

    Cons

    They have employees drive and deliver without paying mileage, and have employees work alone on weekends with no lunch or breaks as required by Dept of Labor. Employees are to afraid of losing their jobs to report them. They promise incentives/prizes/bonuses earned/won while employed at ResorTime and promised to former employees during exit interview and then do not deliver...No H/R dept available to report incidents. (ResorTime.com division of Grand Pacific Resorts). Nepotism, favoritism are rampant. Managers give false information to current employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be held accountable for their word. CEO advised training for other positions would be available, however, people for YEARS requested transfers to other depts./opportunities and positions always filled before "internal postings" were visible to current employees.

    Pros

    They have no Employee resources so easy to get interview

    Pros

    Most of the upper management I have dealt with have been very easy to work with and generally affable people, most of the company seems to reflect this.

    Cons

    It's been very difficult to advance within the company, despite serious dedication and multiple attempts at soliciting feedback from Management.

    I have been working at Grand Pacific Resorts

    Pros

    They are one of the most flexible companies I have ever worked for when it comes to required time off always offering makeup time if I choose.

    Cons

    With cutbacks in the economy, there has also been cutbacks in people, but theere is still the same amount of work to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at all Departments. Some appear to be overworked while others seem to have a lot of free time.
