    I worked at Seacrets: Jamaica USA

    Pros

    Get to work outside on a beach on or in the water. Ridiculously great tips that can last for months. Over 500 employees but almost everyone gets along and are part of the big seacrets family. Make a lot of connections with your guests.

    Cons

    Very very fast paced. Hours can be long and hot but the pros outweigh the cons. Need another job in the winter months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management has always been fair and good to me.I give them respect for dealing with that environment and that many employees for a summer job. Most of them truly care about their employees and go out of their way to show it.

    Awesome summer job, but not recommended for long term employment.

    I worked at Seacrets: Jamaica USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing scenery. Meet lots of people and make a lot of friends. Relatively easy work. Bartenders make a lot of money. Some perks like emloyee parties and shift drinks. Work can be fun.

    Cons

    Dealing with drunk tourists and the egos of upper management can get frustrating and annoying. Working on holidays is usually required, with no extra pay. Business slows dramatically in the fall-spring, leading to only part time hours. Senior management is tight-fisted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees. Don't make empty promises to them. Make sure you follow through with what you say you will do. Don't lie to them and then expect respect. Try working in their shoes for a day. Listen to them and don't assume. Considering each of the hundreds of emloyees that work for you as "replaceable" does not foster a secure work environment.
    Seacrets may already be a successful business, but taking the time to create a more positive manager/employee relationship will undoubtedly make it a prosperous and longlasting business. You already work so hard to increase customer satisfaction. Employee satisfaction should be important to you as well. Try taking an employee poll. You may be surprised to learn how your current employees feel about working for you and what changes they would like to see.
    And, stop wasting leftover food, just give it to the hardworking, underpaid employees. They will appreciate it and you won't look like your trying to prove your power.

    Former Employee - The Best & Worst Place I've Ever Worked
    Former Employee - The Best & Worst Place I've Ever Worked

    I worked at Seacrets: Jamaica USA

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere at times

    Get to meet a LOT of people

    Good learning experience

    Nice view of sunset

    Fireworks!

    Drink cards

    Great location

    Cons

    If you aren't a tipped employee here, your pay sucks. Way below industry standards.

    Very long hours, especially on holidays. No official breaks for meals.

    Can be fired at the drop of a hat. Turnover rate is extremely high even within management positions.

    Tend to hire people will no or minimal experience in some departments (especially security) to save money.

    Your friends will ask you for gold cards.

    Zero respect from head management if you haven't been working there awhile.

    Very few hours during off-season. Find a second job before Bike Week!

    "Same stuff, different day" mentality.

    Not very progressive. Typical Ocean City lifestyle of "do what we did last year"

    Lot of drunk tourons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees industry standards rather than Seacrets standards. Think quality over quantity. Upgrade equipment within establishment rather than spending money on "looks"
