    I have been working at Bald Head Island Club full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Bald Head Island Club is a great place to work. They offer their full-time employees excellent benefits and an optional 401k package. The island is accessible by a 25 minute commute by ferry.

    Cons

    The hiring requirements can be too rigid especially for food and beverage employees. For example; only after passing 2 interviews you are expected to pass a personality test. This can hinder the hiring of new employees quite a bit and cause short staffing issues. Too much control over one's earned vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    When everyone is saying the same thing about one person, it means it is probably true. Cut the personality test, it is a colossal waste of time. Anyone with common sense and the ability to deceive can pass one.


  2. "Great potential, yet no possible advancement through the company."

    Pros

    It was a good place to work that paid a fair hourly wage with excellent opportunities to make good tips.

    Cons

    The off-season is incredibly slow and is difficult to make decent tips. Doubles are a regular thing, and overtime is sometimes not paid due to changes in job shifts that your scheduled for.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some of the dead weight in management. It is a source of frustration to the staff and an embarassment to the BHIC.


  4. "Avoid like the plague!!! They are only interested in one thing... cheap labour!"

    Pros

    Beautiful island and location. Naturally stunning.

    Cons

    Unethical, unprofessional management who are more than willing to disregard confidentiality and make staff feel uncomfortable. No humanity or integrity apparent.

    Advice to Management

    Treat associates with respect and appreciation.
