    They don't care about employees.

    I worked at Nemacolin Woodlands

    Pros

    Health Benefits, 401K, beautiful property, family-like co-workers (not necessarily management), sometimes you get to try activities or meals on property

    Cons

    Rude and cheap guests, awful uniforms and standards, too many bosses, long shifts, other departments don't always do what's right

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try caring and figuring out ways to keep people who do a good job. It was a rude awakening for me to be let go because you didn't budget properly to keep me (a veteran employee) and all the new hires as well as an additional salary position not originally in the budget plans. I made personal changes to be closer to the company and four months later I was let go. I was overworked and expected to just deal with it and told constantly that I would eventually work my new position which never happened. I didn't feel like I was a part of a family when I was told I could always apply again for other positions on property. Why would I do that when I worked there over two years and had earned vacation time and had my health benefits in order? Think about your employees as people and not just numbers. I know other places who haven't had to lay off anyone because they care enough to find a way to keep people employed.

    For most of the employees up there, they are not compensated enough for the crappy clientele brought in who walk all over everyone up there. Start respecting your employees who can't defend themselves when a guest crosses the line. It happens too much and it definitely defeats the morale up there.

    It's insane how we were expected to act a certain way when the owners came in. It felt like we were their personal maids and butlers. They came first before guests and that interrupted our priorities. I feared to be fired for saying the wrong thing to the owners because I've heard that to happen before. It was nerve racking to know they were supposed to arrive if I had to work during their arrival.

    I will not recommend Nemacolin in the future knowing how poorly the employees are treated. I feel for my ex-co-workers who still have to put up with the injustices that continue. I do not recommend Nemacolin as an employer, either. Maybe for those high school or college kids working part-time, but it's not a place to have or try to start a career because once you make too much money or have your last name on your tag, you have a bullseye on your back, and it's just a matter of time before you're canned.

    I worked at Nemacolin Woodlands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Autonomy if you are in management. Great experience and training ground for learning the ins and outs of the individual business unit. No red tape to get things done and ABSOLUTELY GREAT STAFF to work with if you treat them as such.

    Cons

    The OWNERS, not management, are just plain nuts. Your job in in jeopardy all of the time and you are made painfully aware of this. There is complete fear in the management that they will be called out by the class-less owner in a meeting or fired on the spot. If you look good, expect to be sexually harassed, or at very least inappropriately talked to. And don't expect, as a manager, (unless locally born) to stay longer than 3 years. Other than that, it was actually the best place that I have worked. But then again, I have pretty thick skin.

    When you advertise job openings and you have interested employees with related experience, don't skip over them and hire externally without as much as an interview.
