    I worked at Pinehurst Resort full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great golfing privileges!! $5 golf!! Decent percentages off of apparel.

    Cons

    Working on maintenance is a glorified joke . For a company that makes 10's of millions a year, they give the people who make the golf course look it's best a quarter raise a year( that's 25 cents, you heard me right!!). It's a shame because so many people just leave that are great for the course , they just can't make it living off so little.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers you greedy bunch of hypocrites. Their slogan is "do what's right", then do what's right to your employees!!!!

    Pros

    It's a fun place for guests to visit, so it makes it a fun environment to be in. The hours are flexible.

    I worked at Pinehurst Resort full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not too much!! As a employee, you'll get discounts on food, hotel rooms, and golfing. Health benefits are average at best. Hotel Guest sometimes tip you if he/she likes what you're doing.

    Cons

    * Housekeeping staff are definitely overworked and underpaid; poor work/life balance; and they'll make you work a 6 day work schedule when the resort gets into their busy season. * Discovered way too much favoritism toward certain employees within the department. * Management Staff in the department don't care about their employees working for them. All they care about is numbers. Then every time a staff member go see one of the managers about a problem regarding other individuals or something, they act like they're listening to you. But at the same, they're not buying into it. They'll sweep your concerns right under the rug like it's nothing. * Low Morale--high staff turnover rate along with multiple staff call-outs. * Low pay--You are getting paid minimum wage. There If you call-out, be late, or not show up for work, you'll lose $1 per hour extra for that week.

    Advice to Management

    "DO WHAT'S RIGHT"; PLEASE!! Y'ALL NEED TO LEARN HOW TO TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES RIGHT, OR ELSE THEY'LL WALK OUT AND QUIT ON YOU...JUST PLAIN SIMPLE.

    Pros

    The pros are meeting friendly, interesting ppl from all over

    Cons

    They automatically take 20% of everyone's vacation time yearly while management receives bonuses annually. If you're white...you're advancing period. Department Heads only have High School Education.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity, Equal Opportunity, get managers that have more than High School Diploma.
