    Pros

    Decent benefits, clear-cut safety culture, easy instruction on daily responsibilities, generally friendly staff (with the exception of few who treat new people who are unfamiliar with work conditions unfairly- really no different than many other jobs).

    Cons

    Dirty and sometimes dangerous work environment, stressful if you care about the quality of work you put out, heavier responsibility for those that assume the position of doing quality work (again, not much different from many other jobs out there.)

    Advice to Management

    Although I did not feel disrespected, I never really felt an appreciation quite equal to the level of work I was contributing on a nightly basis. To be more clear, I didn't get any more personal reward for my hard work than the middle-of-the-road contributors on my shift- in fact, I was frequently in-charge of training new employees which was always a roll of the dice.

    Pros

    There are plenty of jobs to do here and the pay is great. The company is family owned so the owners have high visibility and are actively involved in managing the business. Great resorts, and management is generally pretty flexible about vacation time. Coworkers are generally friendly and caring.

    Cons

    Managers are overworked so they can neglect employees and come off like they don't care. Everyone is super busy because they hire just enough people to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Develop clear paths to advancement/raises so your employees have goals to attain and will work hard to reach them. The easiest way to stifle creativity and innovation is to create an environment where employees are stuck in their current role with no opportunity to excel. Establish quarterly performance reviews at least.

    Pros

    Growing company that despite tight wallets throughout the industry, is willing to invest in it's people and resources.

    Cons

    Growing at such a fast pace that it can get frustrating keeping up with changes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front line, they are the life line and tend to think of the company first. Greatest company I have worked for.

    Pros

    Management team turned their back to the elephant in the room.

    Cons

    favoritism very apparent with lack of supervision. Workload was carried by the good ole boy system.

    Advice to Management

    accountability for each employee to do the job. Not make excuses for lack of performance.

    Pros

    Paid weekly, company resorts are free for use and the company is privately owned by a liquid family. They are not indebted up to their eyeballs like some of their competitors

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking in every area they have gotten too big for their britches and employees are expected to work twice as hard as one would anywhere else day in and day out. If you want to get burned out on your work-work here!

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for what they do and do not overwork people just simply because they will work hard for you,just aint right
