    I worked at Hard Rock International full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers and the company they are great to work for and with.

    Cons

    I didn't enjoy working for my supervisors in Players services because they didn't have my back and didn't own-up to their own faults and thew you under the bus to save themselves, they didn't look out for the people on the front line, they were to busy taking their smoke breaks one after the other leaving the workers unsupervised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure that your good workers don't get taken advantage of by guests that sexually insult their employee or supervisors that miss treat them and refuse to take a stand for what is right..

    Pros

    The Employee benefits are ok, they do great charity work and events, nice tee shirts, good music and videos, good concerts

    The manager don't follow with company policy
    If the managers don't like you they will find a way to fire you, or make you quit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to be kind, love all serve all, all is one and my favored double checking
    Managers need to learn the real meaning of this and apply not just ignore it

    Pros

    Great place to work. Management is trying to do their part to keep people enthused.

    Cons

    Making sure that the proper people get the proper recognition. Staffing is low in critical departments, but in non critical departments, there is an over-abundance of workers. Office space is limited and there is no privacy. Need to start retaining quality employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One thing I learned from a previous company, was that everyone was equal. There were no special parking spaces for Presidents, VP's or Directors. They parked with everyone else. They did not get special treatment. Communicate with not only your hourly team members, but your salaried. Improve on the work-life balance, and compensate people accordingly.
