  1. "Oppressive management makes for a bad work environment. Employees are tired of the status quo and guests sense it."

    Pros

    It is a job. That should count for something in this very bad economy. You get a free meal, free medical insurance for the employees and their dependants. You get to meet a lot of celebrities.

    Cons

    According to some of the people that worked there during previous management it used to be a great place to work. The working environment now is reminiscent of some of the horror stories I have heard about how Wal-Mart treats their employees. The employees are the ones that make the Resort the best place to stay in Hawaii.

    Advice to Management

    But what the management is essentially doing is taking away the warm personality of the employees and make them abide by certain standards that they think is what the guest are looking. I think company standards should be treated as par for the course. The personal touch is what gets the guest to come back. I have heard many return guests complaining and some employees are just bitter. Change the way you treat your employees. Make them want to come to work. With the way things are going now most of the employees come to work just because it is a stable job. The Resort is not a factory....we are part of the hospitality industry and we should act as such.

    I worked at Kahala Hotel & Resort full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part is the benefits, specifically, the medical and dental.

    Cons

    Too much micro-management in house. Salary is OK.

    Advice to Management

    More incentives for the employees to improve service.
