Pros

The location is fantastic for those looking to settle in the Keys. Equidistant from Miami and Key West. Provides limited employee housing to seasonal hourly staff and very limited employee housing. Pay is competitive.

Cons

Communication from senior staff can be lacking. Rumors run through the hotel without confirmation. Succession planning and workforce development in some areas is lacking. LIke many employers in the Florida Keys, it is difficult to move up because of management longevity.

Advice to Management

Be more open with staff about the direction of the hotel and expectations, particularly for promotion.

    I have been working at Hawks Cay Resort full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Hawks Cay for a few years now and have really been enjoying my time working on Duck Key. For the field I am in they have a competitive pay structure and excellent benefits including health, dental, vision, 401k, paid holidays, and employee meals. This is a huge perk for me. My coworkers are great and I find my work both challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    I work on a somewhat remote island in the keys. We have high turn over because of this and a lot of time, money and resources are spent on training new people.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find incentives to retain your key employees and managers long term

    I worked at Hawks Cay Resort full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement! I started out at an entry-level position, and moved up to management within a year with hard work. The resort is large, and always looking for good team-members.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is too much work in the day, for just one person/manager.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the smaller departments need more team members to run more efficiently.
