    I worked at Orange Lake Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company overall has good benefits, the salary is okay and also is the 401(k) program. Generally the employees are friendly and courteous to each other. The location is beautiful and aesthetically pleasing.

    Cons

    The department budgets tend to be very aggressive and is difficult to adhere. Orange Lake Resorts is a small company but is acquiring many boutique resorts which seems to over stretch what they do well. The acquisitions for these new properties drive profit margins smaller thus creating aggressive budgets and at times seems unrealistic. At times we are severely understaffed causing issues when trying to find coverage when unexpected events, such as employee resignations, occur. Multiple instances myself and others were expected to work over 21 consecutive days without compensation as a salaried employees due to the lack of coverage and support. My previous leader was inexperienced in my department and also lacked basic function know hows of the resort therefore unable, in my opinion, to grow and lead the business.

    Advice to Management

    The current GM is not involved with the day to day operation and the staff. The lack of experience and knowledge of operating a resort with the amenities and structure is preventing forward drive and execution. The current GM is attempting to maintain and is not perceived to be doing so at a high level. The GM's lack of leadership has created frustration and lack of confidence from their subordinates, creating uncertainty in leading and driving the resort forward to create a high level of work conditions and guest experience. Please provide strong leadership to keep the staff engaged to provide excellence through there duties and work.

    Cons

    peaple got families to support, dont scam them and sell them the idea of making money, that is not fair, timeshare is not like that, they push you down with the worst schedule and keep u there, they got a team already set making money and making the departement money, they just need extra peaple to fill up empty spots,

    Advice to Management

    peaple got families to support, dont scam them and sell them the idea of making money, that is not fair, be human, and stop letting one guy doing whatever he wants in a departement,.
