Negative Outlook

I worked at Gaylord Palms Resort full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Fair compensation; limitless growth opportunities; available tools and resources; management open door policy; teamwork; true stream towards flawless service both to employees and customers!

Cons

The company is now bought off by Marriott - It was communicated from trusted sources that the employment satisfaction is dropping, the standards are back to the basics... Although I understand that any transition is hard, it does seem that the (negative) impact is quite profound both in technical and HR terms... Too sad indeed. I am still recommending this employer as I am in hopes that things will improve eventually...

Advice to Management

Just stick to the Gaylord Vision Statement and don't let your employees turn into Marriott provider-robots!

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Gaylord Palms Resort full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They work with schedule fairly well

    Cons

    Expect to be overworked and underpaid. Schedule is week by week (Sat-Fri) but we don't usually see it until Thursday night, making it very difficult to plan your week. Managers play favorites hard, if you are wanting to work here, prepare to suck up to the managers for the first few months and you'll be fine.
