I worked at Kiawah Island Golf Resort full-time

Pros

-Very intensive training that continues throughout your employment.
-Managers that will work hard for you, finding you hours around the island.
-Beautiful island, with many world class amenities that employees have access to.

Cons

-Does not encourage people to move up, as managers often make considerably less than their employees.
-General lack of communication between the outlets leads to dissonance between departments.
-Managers who are well liked by employees are terminated for cheaper options, heavy turnaround.
- HR department acts like their PR department, covering up undesirable actions in unethical fashions.

Advice to Management

If they were to treat the managers with as much respect as the everyday employees, there would not be so much turnaround. This leads to everyday employees enjoying their job, and managers loathing it.

    I have been working at Kiawah Island Golf Resort part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free golf and scenery on Island.

    Cons

    Treat employees like crap!! All they care about in gross profit margin and making $$ goals. HR has tooo much power. HR Doing training with golf employees and they know nothing about golf. All anyone cares about is 5 star rating at hotel. Would not recommend Kiawah to anyone looking for Job.

    Advice to Management

    Separate the hotel from all Gold employee's. Hotel employees making tee times and telling Guest they can play as a twosome is ridiculous!!!


  2. "Kiawah Island is the worst environment I've ever worked in. Only one of my bosses appreciated all my hard work."

    I worked at Kiawah Island Golf Resort full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a great place to make money (With a lot of hard work). Beautiful island to see everyday! The golf courses are world class and a beauty to look at. The Sanctuary is breathtaking.

    Cons

    Unappreciative for their hard working employees. Penny-pinchers that only care about profit margins, not their employees. Poorly execute service behind the scenes.

    Advice to Management

    More organization and better communicate. More genuine concern and care for their employees.
