    I have been working at Sandals Resorts

    Pros

    Getting to work from home.

    Cons

    Management is horrific. The majority of management is uneducated in leadership, so they rule by fear as dictators, and give no respect to lesser employees, they openly berate and embarrass them. They greatly favor Jamaicans, and if you are Jamaican you will have a better chance of being promoted or hired, because they are a Jamaican owned company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put management into equality and leadership training.

    Pros

    - Exposure to the hospitality industry

    Cons

    - Staff is severly underpaid (Jamaica)
     - No tips allowed
     - Staff badly treated
     - Staff is not allowed to begin/join a union (which is illegal)
     - Managers are awful
    - Racism exists

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Re-vamp your practices and policies, take a good look at the economy which your staff is working in, and then re-evaluate the wages being paid. Black people make good managers too, I'm just saying
