    Pros

    Workers and volunteers alike get discounts on events and freebies on certain food events. Get to use all amenities at the resort. Full time employees get benefits and holiday pay, part-time they get a schedule they desire and changes are very easy to happen.

    Cons

    Pay is very low, part-time workers get to receive minimum pay. Most of the part-time workers work round the clock. The security team uses golf carts to patrol the resort, however there is always repair issues on the carts. The front office has to deal with upset guest on charges that are in error. There is always errors. The laundry pay card is located in the lobby which is open from 6am to midnight, however the laundry room is open 24 hours, and why have the guest walk to another building for cards that is only used in the laundry room.

    Advice to Management

    * There seems to be no consistence way of doing the jobs in the resort, from security, maintenance, and activities. Since all other jobs are done by one person there is only a right way of working. * The resort is using equipment that is falling apart and does not look professional, repair and clean up the equipment.


  7. My experience at Thousand Trails was great! I even got married at one of their preserves.

    Moved 13 times in 2 years to keep up with the advancement of the company.

    Pros

    The pay was good as I was a high school student during the time, and the environment was laid back most of the time.

    Cons

    The company relocated randomly, and customers were often really angry as the system did not accurately convey how many times they had been called.
